Cunningham (4426) - 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

Bottle. Golden beer with a very strong head. The aroma is lightly dry and the flavour is dully hopped. Overall quite a plain weak beer.

Cask at the Anchor, Birmingham. Poured a clear amber with a thin bubbly white head. The aroma is weak malty. The flavour is smooth, chewy and uber malty with some fruit and a nice smooth bitterness on the palate and into the aftertaste.

tommann (2665) - 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.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 8, 2009
Bottle: Pissy colour and the aroma of fuddy, wet animals. Less than appealing start to what turned out to be a stale and boring brew. Te only notable thing here is the boozy petrol finish. Bleh
