STEVIE_NIX (35) - - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle from local M&S. Pours a nice amber with a liight white head. has a very light aroma of hops and a bit of cereal. taste is very light, slight bitterness coming through. Body is also very thin, watery almost. Finish is bitter but short. Basically not enough of anything here to make it worth recommending. The basis of a good beer but just that, a simple UK take on an American ale, without any of the attitude. im suprised it came out at 2.9 actually.

Bright clear gold beer, tidy cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry. Good minerally carbonation. Bready malts, not that sweet. Trace of esters. Hops bring mild marmalade and a trace of fresh peel. Light semi dry finish. More of a bitter than an IPA or APA.

Refreshing modern style ale. Strong citrus flavours with a mellow aftertaste reminiscent of a good Sancerre.

Cunningham (5325) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2015
Clear deep golden color with a fine white head. Citric and toffee aroma. Medium body. Ok balance between bitterness and sweetness. Average carbonation. A bit typical British special bitter with some more citric notes. A lot of caramel, toffee, mild fruity and citric flavor. Fresh and nice ale.

rosenbergh (8271) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 3, 2015
500 ml bottle. (Marks & Spencer) London, England.
Clear golden colour, small white head. Sweet maltiness, mild hops and a hint of bitterness in the aroma. The flavour is sweet maltiness, moderate bitterness, nutty dryness and sweet hoppiness. You could get more out of Cascade hops. Still quite enjoyable.

Pale amber, very slight hazy, large white head that settles quickly. Aroma is slightly muted malt, light zest. Light citrus flavours, nectarine, a little bread. Moderate bitter finish. Light to medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Pretty decent doesn’t really stand out.
