Drank as a draught. Not very interesting, slightly sweet taste, not really bitter. I was disappointed.

Without a doubt the cream of Manchester, and anywhere else; I just can’t get enough of this nectar of the gods. to the extent that my friends are concerned about my behaviour. To my shame I had to travel to the home of this ambrosia rather than attend the Great British Beer Festival 2014. The first sip of this elixir always gives me such a stirring in the pants region that to describe it would mean banning me from this site. Drink it and never look back!!!

allmyvinyl (9052) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 12, 2014
440ml can. Pours clear golden, thick foamy head - thanks widget! Aromas are light malt, not much else. Taste is sweet. No carbonation once the widget is spent. Foam head sits on top like an unwelcome marshmallow. Watery and thin. Not great.

decaturstevo (5742) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Gold pour with white head and lace. Aroma is light sour malt and a touch of earthy hops. Flavor is light caramel malt with a fruity funk. Light/medium bitter and a light sweet finish. A bit thin and watery with good carbonation. Not an ipa but @ 3% ok if that is your thing

poech73 (349) - Braine, BELGIUM - SEP 18, 2014
Can @ StoneManor. Bière blonde, peu amère, peu alcoolisée et peu maltée.
A la décapsule elle présente un col blanc épais assez persistant. Le nez est plutôt sans intérêt: senteurs de céréales peu maltées, une espèce de caramel suret métallique. La bouche est courte légèrement caramélisée mielleuse finissant des une petite amertume acerbe, métallique.

I occasionally buy this beer so I can have a draught at home. Pours golden with a thick head. As it states on the can it is bitter. Pour into a pint glass to enjoy... bread, grass, barnyard, golden, cloudy, frothy, medium bitterness, full body, creamy, soft carbonation, bitter,
