Little aroma. Darkish amber, clear with thick creamy white head. No carbonation. Smooth feel in mouth and on tongue, though no great taste. Easy drinking but not at all memorable.

First sampled this bitter in Coanes, Johnstone in October 1992. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber in colour with slight malt note in the aroma. Thin mouth feel and good lacing. Pale malts in the mouth leading to an overall sweetish taste but with little flavour however. Very little hops detected in the dilute aftertaste. Finish is weak and watery with a hint of barley sugar. A poor session bitter.

Cask. Pours dark orange/brown with a thick, creamy, dense head. Aroma of burnt malts. Very watery so little flavour present. A very boring beer after more than two sips. Not impressed.

[3185-20100730] Cask. Grainy alcohol notes in the aroma. Clear, amber orange body with a long-lasting creamy white head and thick lattice lacing. Creamy grain malt flavour lightly lingers afterward. Medium body. Good, quite a nice pour.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It is strongly suspected that the Cathedral City Ale 3.6% made by Coors UK for the City Arms in Wells, Somerset is this beer as a rebadge. Bright bronze colour. Brassy, caramelly aroma with light earthy hop nose. Very light, with toasty, earthy character and a subtle fruitiness.
