jmgreenuk (4474) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2013
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.

Cunningham (4533) - 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

rauchbier (3612) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2002
Bottle conditioned. Amber colour with a faint haze dragged up by a slight overcondition, but poor head retention. Sweet malt and grapefruity hop aromas and flavours before a dry hop bitter finish.

DruncanVeasey (7203) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2007
My second bottled offering from the altar, and by far the best. Slightly greenish pale gold pour humming mustily of the hopsack. A typically churchish brew swimming with zesty grapefruit hoppiness. A crisp bite of hops in the finish with none of the biscuity oatiness characterising their more sessionable beers. A spoonful of lemon soapiness. Straightforward but refreshingly crisp Ale.

downender (6293) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Cross Hands, Winterbourne Down, S Gloucestershire 18/05/09. Golden in colour with a slight, lacy white head. Citrus hop aroma with some malt sweetness and hay. Flavour began sweet, before a touch of grapefruit and orange and decent dry finish. Drinkable.

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
