Leighton (21083) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, vibrant gold with a fluffy, white head. Some sugary, bready malts in the nose. Medium to big sweet flavor, bready, with some sweet fruits, white sugar, fine straw. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet, clean, sugary finish, with basic bready pale malts, mild bitterness, some sweet hay, toasted sugar, maple, floral hops and lightly toasted grass. An OK beer, though not particularly impressive.

Swaroga (2213) - Warszawa, POLAND - NOV 5, 2011
33cl bottle. Pours a brown wood, clear with eggshell small head. Nose : cherry, plums, caramelized malts. Smoked and whisky notes. Sip : Oily with a small carbonation. Little sweet followed by coffee bitterness which I find amusing since itís a pale beer. Caramel and dried fruits are still present. Honestly itís a surprising beer. From taste I would say itís more of a typical brown brown.
