Bottleshare at Leighton’s Stratoflat. Can from Dan the Man. Clear gold beer, thin pale cream colour head. Palate is thin and mildly dry. Very modest carbonation, especially from a can. Thin pale malts, some paper. Trace of creamy sweetness. Esters and a whisper of something fruity. Light semi dry finish. Macro nonsense.

Bottle shared at Leightons place. Thanks? To Daniel for this one. Light golden orange coloured pour with a fine white head. Aroma is sweet nutty malts, diacetyl, light English hops. Flavour is composed of watery grains, light toffee, nutty, light grains. Palate is watery, thin, low carbonation. Dog shit.

sudomorph (1079) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2015
Pours a clear brass with a creamy head. Aroma is mild with hints of caramel and traditional hops. Taste is balanced but a touch bitter. Mild caramel, bread, toffee, and a touch of earthy hops. Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a mildly dry finish. Overall an ok beer.

One of those "used to be better before InBev" beers. Fantastic looks when ut pours white and fades into amber. Then it disappoints you, some initial taste of malts and caramel that quickly changes into dirty water.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2015 It looks fantastic when you pour it - creamy and golden. There is an initial pleasant taste of malty toastiness. However, the overall flavour is like bitter water. Disappointing.

Pint on tap at Glyntwrog Inn, Llanrug. No aroma, pale amber beer with small tight white head. Very watery with slight hop/ malt finish, uninspiring. I used to drink Boddingtons with my grandfather over thirty years ago, this is NOT the same beer.

Not a particuarily good brew, I hadn’t had it and upon trying it I was disappointed. I found it to be bitter in a bad way, lacking a good balance of flavor, or even a pleasing flavor. Alas, all is not lost because I had it at legoland windsor resort only beer on draught

Can. Pours in clear amber body with very creamy white head, quick avalanche effect. Aroma has caramel, grainy, hay. Taste has grainy medium sweetness with low earthy bitterness, pretty odd hay after taste. Body is full, medium to low carbonation.

Kita (1869) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JAN 24, 2015
Can, pint. Clear pale amber color with medium creamy white head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma is mild malty, grassy and bready. Taste starts with smooth and moderate sweet malt with toffee and caramel following and mild bitter finish. Light body, creamy texture and soft carbonation in palate. Incredibly smooth, but boring, too...
