Great for an open fire on a cold winters night. Not overly hopped and is better served slightly warm. A great ale! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SlackerMads (1562) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle, best before January 2016? Clear copper with a medium sized diminishing off white head. Light berries, white cheese and dried green plants, light brewmash, earthy. Medium body, oily texture, medium/high carbonation, light/medium sweet and bitter. Light dry and bitter finish. Not too bad, but too high carbonation and a bit homebrewish.

sebletitje (6646) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 8, 2014
Bouteille 50cl as Canterburry Cathedrale Ale. BB 10/2014. Orangée-ambrée, col beige. Arôme est malté, avec un houblonné renfermé fort présent, touche bready crust sur pointes d’agrumes. Très anglais. Palais au profil malté toujours dans un style très anglais avec un agréable biscuité. Fruité est modéré venant des houblons avec ce côté EKG. Cara léger grillé sur la fin. Sympa.
