stravale (2388) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 8, 2012
Bottle from Nina’s Mini Mart, Edinburgh
Orange amber...clear...frothy white head...dissipates to thin layer..some lacing
Aroma - light aroma of citrus orange zest...some orange...sweet light caramel malts.....slight alcohol tang on nose.
Taste - Orange citrus...orange zest..bit of peach...bitter orange marmalade..juicy sweet caramel malts...slight toffee...touch of toasted malt...background light bitter zesty hops...alcohol noticeable but reasonably masked....not a bitter IPA more emphasis on fruits..
Palate - medium carb from bottle...medium body...bit oily sticky texture. Finish as main flavour with increased zesty orange bitterness in the moderate linger....some warming alcohol
Overall - I would give it a good swirl to get rid of some of the carbonation. A nice quite orangey IPA with a dask of marmalade and a light bitter orange zest finish.

Lacks character compared to the Bombay 106, perfectly pleasant but could do with more hops

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2012
A clear golden colored beer, with a small foamy white head. The aroma of hops with fruits like citrus and orange. The taste of sweet fruits, bitter hops and some caramel. The aftertaste is sweet and fresh bitter.

50 cl bottle, Sheffield, UK via The Dram Shop. Kicking of the Xmas beer countdown. Pours a hazy deep gold apricot. Caramel, cereal grain and lemon zest aroma. Creamy, honey sweet then a orange rind bitterness builds at the end. Quite nice.

patricks110 (1906) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 7, 2011
St. Cuthburt pours a sparkly, bright orange copperish body with a foamy off white head. Lovely carbonation with some spotty lacing and a overly unimpressive head. The nose is fruity and lightly hopped with a light breasdy malt and a fuzzy peach esque note. A hint of white sugar and light citrus. The taste is sweet and lightly malted with an overly fruity taste. Very subtle notes of lemon, grass, wheat, apricot and peach. Nothing in the taste compares to the nose. A nice, crisp finish with a light hop. St. Cuthbert has a medium body with some soft carbonation and a light subtle aftertaste of bitter hops. This is an okay brew, but nothing comparable to an IPA. The peachy sweet taste is lovely, but it is missing all the bitterness and hop character.
