Leighton (20520) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. A delicious Scotch Ale. Pours a dark amber with a medium, white head. Aroma is malty, with notes of caramel and scotch. Flavor is quite sweet, with plenty of rich caramel, some butter, hints of fruit, finishing with faint bitterness. Without a doubt has that Scotch Ale character, and here it is beautiful. Medium in body with average carbonation, lightly syrupy. Nice!
