JOHNS17 (21) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - OCT 10, 2012
Cask Osprey Glasgow. With a dearth of anything any more inviting, I ordered my first pint of Caley 80/- for more than 5 years. If anything it was more unremarkable than the preceeding scoop. Just what Caledonian (Heineken) think they are contributing to the resurgent ale market is beyond this reviewer They constantly churn out "new" brews which. quite frankly taste like each other so much it. is impossible to tell them apart. could someone please just tell the. Head Brewer that beer should contain hops ? Any micro-brewer would give their right arm to get their remaining one on the brewing facilities at Caley.

Mahogany brown colour. Has a full malty flavour, good body and a rich mouthfeel.

Palatable but disappointing. Bland stuff. No real flavours. Nice colour and light texture.

sic1314 (2572) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2012
Overly caramelised these days, and a shadow of the beer it was 20 odd years ago. Pours brown and clear, aroma is unbalanced caramel and malt. Dry slightly astringent aftertaste.

kwik-lime (1159) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2012
Dark and malty, very smooth but a touch watery in the palate. Drinkable but not that satisfying.

Sweet nose, bittersweet taste, although no real flavours to speak of.

prawlie (1054) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2012
Pint at the Old Manor in Bracknell. Creamy head on a dark amber beer. Tastes bitter with some sweetness, hints of citrus and a bit of biscuit. Aroma is light, floral and gently hopped. A fairly pleasant beer, but a bit watery. Balanced bitter aftertaste.

berkshirejohn (4204) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2012
Cask at the Prince Arthur (JDW), Fleet. Gold with a tight cream head; bicuity malt aroma; sweet biscuity malt flavour with a smooth grainy body; then a sweet finish with the faintest trace of hops.
