Launched in June 2004 to celebrate Cotleigh’s 25th Anniversary. Cotleigh 25 became an instant success and was listed as a permanent brand. It was awarded "Best Alcohol Drink" in London at The Excellence in Food and Drinks Awards 2006. An explosion of flavours originating from American Cascade hops gives this brilliant pale golden beer a fresh aroma and fruit filled finish.

ManVsBeer (6872) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle from Sidmouth Wines, Sidmouth. Amber gold with a very thin head. From a clear bottle so a little skunky, but there is some orange fruitiness in both aroma and taste, alongside some malts.

Towey1989 (1176) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2015
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear golden colour with a thin white head. Soft aroma of grainy malt, some cardboard, slight orange and subtle grassy hops. Taste is similar of pale, grainy malts, some biscuit, slight orange, subtle yeast and maybe grassy hops in the background. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, slight dusty hop bitterness in the finish. Quite a balanced bitter but really boring.

Quack-Duck (9060) - Down South, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2015

edsspoon (826) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2014

Idiosynkrasie (5555) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 28, 2014
330ml bottle. Barely clear golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Grainy and slightly strawy aroma meets luckily citrusy hoppy overtones with a lemon touch. Taste is cautiously citrusy hoppy, grainy, strawy basis; slightly watery. A bit poor for a 25th anniversary Ale - and at the same time a document for the development of the craft beer scene: I could swear you’ll find a "Better Alcohol Drink" in London today. Maybe you could already in 2006. But that could mean to discredit ’The Excellence in Food and Drinks Awards’ - an objective not to be pursuited at this point, naturally.
