The_Osprey (5561) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2016
Bottle share at Cotteridge II as Gales D-Day, 6.5%. Many thanks to Steve for this one. Hazy orange, still, small foamy off-white head. Aroma is thin pear skin, acetone, solvent. Terrible. Body is smooth, light carbonation. Taste is pear skin, cardboard, sweet. Just horrible. Totally knackered by age, as you would expect for a moderate ABV beer.

Bottle. Cotteridge Beano v2. Murky wet paper. I found this just about undrinkable. Well past tackling.

Scopey (11790) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2016
50th Anniversary version thanks to BIK at Cotteridge Convention 2016. It pours murky deep brown with no head to speak of. The aroma is quite rich, musty, funky, oxidised, dirt and dust. The taste is tart, earthy, umami, musty, tangy, oxidised malts and Granny smith apple. The finish is pretty musty and dirty. Medium body and fine, yet foamy carbonation. Way past its prime. Proper knackered.

Bottle at CWC II; muddy brown pour zero head, wet leather and soy sauce aroma, taste has sherry like fruit action, oxidised, soy sauce, wet sofa. 50th Ann version.

Mr_Pink_152 (3384) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2016
Difficult one to rate, 50th ann version, tried at Cotteridge 2. Deep murk brown colour no head. aroma is musty fruit. taste almost like a sherry, but also dirty bitter. Nice for a very old beer.

SarkyNorthener (3898) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2016
Cotteridge Convention II. Bottle shared thanks to beersiveknown, cheers Steve. 50th Anniversary Edition. Murky brown beer. Aroma of soy sauce, dark fruit and cardboard. Taste is sherry, soy sauce, stale and some sour notes. Decent enough for the age.

Ungstrup (33805) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2004
A hazy amber beer with a small beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of yeast, acid, and hops. The flavor is sweet and very hoppy combined with notes of oil, grass, and caramel.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2004
Copper with lasting head. Summer fruits, yeast and light malt aroma. A touch of sweetnes with a faint cooked veg flavour. Light and refreshing.
