500ml can. Dark golden, fluffy white head, good lacing. Nose has caramel malts, a bit fruity. Taste has grains, caramel, some fruitiness and some sweetness. Finishes with a little grain and caramel. Light body, average carbonation. Pretty standard ale.

440ml can from Asda. Very drinkable ale with good malt/hop balance. Golden colour, minimal head but fairly lively fizz. Aroma of malt, caramel and fruit. Taste is medium sweet and light/medium bitter, slight peppery spice. Finish is dry and faintly metallic. A good ale.

Malty well balenced bitter beer. Brilliantly drinkable. Caramel notes and a golden color. Best of British but nothing special.

uckelman (599) - Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2016
500ml bottle. Pours clear, moderate amount of white head reducing to lacing. Aroma is earthy, mildly skunky. Must have Fuggles in it. Very bitter. Finish is abrupt, with a lingering toasty aftertaste.

beeebon (403) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2016
From can pours golden pale with small fizzy white head. Aroma is slightly spicy, grassy hop and caramel. Taste is mildly bitter and sweet. Easy drinking, not quite as spicey as I remember, decent but nothing special

JorgeLee (1756) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2016
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Always surprises how pale Tanglefoot is, quite amber gold and bright in colour. Another overcarbonated pasteurised bottle, almost fizzy like Coke, lots of bubbles then flattens out. There is some fruitiness and an earthy hop twang but also a vaguely sulphury aroma and all tastes a bit muddled and bland. I think this is yet another one where the cask is better than a rather bland and fizzy bottle.

hohops (792) - Kent, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2016
Appearance- clear golden with an amber tinge. A small white fizzy head. Aroma- sweet malt, honey tinges, grassy hop hints. Taste- bitter hops, caramel malt, clingy bitter finish. Ok, slightly industrial.

ndburns (165) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2016
500ml bottle from Asda. Looks much like a supermarket bitter, copper with lively fizz, medium white head. Aroma is sharp and sweet, bit of fruit and malt. Taste is weak and bland malt, ok mouthfeel, a little watery. Not impressive.

Tognetta (716) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - FEB 5, 2016
Pouca espuma, baixa formação. Aroma lupulado terroso, um pouco caramelado. Paladar trás leve malte, menos intenso que o aroma, até certo ponto decepcionante em relação ao aroma. Aftertaste breve, lembra uma puro malte, só que mais aromática.
