Leighton (19851) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2011
Cask at the Crosse Key, JDW. Pours a clear, deep ruby with a bubbly, off-white head. Caramel, toffe and ripe fruits like grapes on the nose. Flavor is sweet and quite fruity, with some wood, sugar syrup, alcohol and herbal hops. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Light dryness in the finish with some pleasantly surprising roastiness, more almost ripe fruits, not too sweet. An interesting, slightly incongruous beer.
