Leighton (22550) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle at home in London - picked up at the M&S on Oxford Street. Pours clear gold with a frothy, white head. The nose holds bready malts, slight toffee, leaves. Light sweet flavor with simple, lightly toasted malts, further toffee, faint berries, orange rind, dirt. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with some leafy hops, toasted grains and toffee, more brown bread. Not bad.

imdownthepub (15394) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2015
Bottled, 500ml from Marks & Spencers in Banbury. Amber with fizzed head. Quite a thin, malty beer, quite carbonated with a caramelised body. Sweet and slightly boiled. Not really the finished article for me.
