tombyars (1448) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2012
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.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2010
As Cathedral City Ale (?) @ City Arms, Wells. Dark amber/rich copper with scattered lacing. Brassy malt aromas, like crystal malts. Toasty finish. Smooth, soft palate. Nice balance.

Oakes (13156) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 6, 2010
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.

Travlr (14698) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Cask. Golden color, thin white head, scant lacing. Aroma of malt, white pepper. Taste is smooth, malty. Thin body. OK.

sm89walt (1792) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2010
Cask - The Murderers, Norwich. As ’Murderer’s Ale’ (pretty sure it’s this). Poured amber in colour with a lasting foamy off-white head. Nutty, sweet caramel malt aromas. Malt dominated on the tongue too, with a light bitter finish. Light to medium in body with a soft, short mouthfeel.

downender (6718) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Three Tuns, Bristol 8/3/10. Deep amber with a slight, off-white head. Malty, slightly sweet with a moderately bitter finish. Forgettable.
