Leighton (21239) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2016
Bottle shared in London - big thanks to beersiveknown. Pours lightly hazy golden-brown with a dense, frothy off-white head. The aroma has some lightly tangy fruits, orange, bread, berries. Medium sweet flavour with a nice, light acidity that cuts through the body, some further orange, melon, pale bread. Medium to full bodied with massaging carbonation. Warming finish with restrained tang, some lemon, tangerine, a little orange peel, light woody dryness. Great balance overall. Well and drinkable.

<i>Tasting at Papsoe</i>Koelschtrinker (20398) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 1, 2011
Hazy dark amber color; small creamy head. The ageing in the wine barrels left a nice fruity and sour aroma, vinous and woody, very light chemical products, light alcohol. Good body strength, some sweetness but not cloying, caramel flavor with some fruiteness; together with the alcohol they create a paint remover feeling. At the end the alcohol starts warming. The aroma is wonderful, the flavor is good.
Intensiv hefiger Antrunk mit übertriebener Alkoholigkeit. Dies überrascht, dennd as Bier ist ansonsten eher mau und zeigt, abgesehen vom Antrunk, keine weiteren intensiven Aromen. Minimal nussig, hier noch wenig hefig. Schlichter Abgang mit wenig Süße. /9/9/9/fl/9
