COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
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.

McNeillR (2142) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2016
Plain golden and no real head. Nose is fairly plain peach and puffy malt. Initial taste is fairly stodgy fruit, Farty grass. Very crisp carbonation and a light enough mouthfeel. It’s not horrendous but I’ve no idea why it’s in a clear bottle.

Bottle, Comely Bankers v4 open door semi-al-fresco tasting

ManVsBeer (7824) - 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 (1507) - 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.
