Cunningham (4304) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2013

Appearance: Clear amber color with a finger thick white that leaves a fine lacing.
Aroma: Caramel malty, light hoppy and fruity.
Palate: Medium body. Slightly sweet and a fine bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Well balanced and nice malty, fruity and mild hoppy.
Overall impression: I do personally prefer Bitter from a bottle. A lot more fresh because a bit higher carbonation. This one was a perfect example. Sadly they did not have it on tap at my visit. So I could not compare.
Personal stats: Bottle @ source

foxo82 (673) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2012
Bottle (bottle conditioned) from Stirchley Wines & Spirits, Pershore Road, Birmingham. This may have been classed as a bitter but I’d say it is more of a golden ale. Pours a clear amber with sediment. Nice head with a decent lifespan. Faint, citrus aroma with some fruity hops. Poor mouthfeel - too fizzy for my tastes and more in line with a pale lager. Taste is initially bitter but soon gives way to sweetness and a huge shot of citrus. Decent session/barbeque ale but not at all memorable.

tommann (2604) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours gold with a medium head. Aroma is peach and straw. Taste has peach throughout with straw in a medium bitter finish. Not in your face but easy drinking.

Bottle that Barry picked up at SH Jones, Bicester, Oxon, Saturday 29th October 2011, cheers Barry. Pours gold with a lacing of filmy white tiny bubbles. Little bit floral on the nose, lightly fruity in the mouth with citrus showing, though also a touch flowery in mouth. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov13 3.2
