DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2007
My second bottled offering from the altar, and by far the best. Slightly greenish pale gold pour humming mustily of the hopsack. A typically churchish brew swimming with zesty grapefruit hoppiness. A crisp bite of hops in the finish with none of the biscuity oatiness characterising their more sessionable beers. A spoonful of lemon soapiness. Straightforward but refreshingly crisp Ale.

Cunningham (7715) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2013

Appearance: Clear amber color with a finger thick white that leaves a fine lacing.
Aroma: Caramel malty, light hoppy and fruity.
Palate: Medium body. Slightly sweet and a fine bitterness. Average carbonation.
Taste: Well balanced and nice malty, fruity and mild hoppy.
Overall impression: I do personally prefer Bitter from a bottle. A lot more fresh because a bit higher carbonation. This one was a perfect example. Sadly they did not have it on tap at my visit. So I could not compare.
Personal stats: Bottle @ source

RichardGretton (4739) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2007
Bottle. Golden beer with a very strong head. The aroma is lightly dry and the flavour is dully hopped. Overall quite a plain weak beer.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2006
Bottle from GBBF 06. Golden colour with a small white head. Fruit and malt aromas. Sweet taste with a bitter finish. A bit ordinary.

rauchbier (3872) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2002
Bottle conditioned. Amber colour with a faint haze dragged up by a slight overcondition, but poor head retention. Sweet malt and grapefruity hop aromas and flavours before a dry hop bitter finish.

tommann (3669) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours gold with a medium head. Aroma is peach and straw. Taste has peach throughout with straw in a medium bitter finish. Not in your face but easy drinking.

Alphadelic (2232) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 8, 2009
Bottle: Pissy colour and the aroma of fuddy, wet animals. Less than appealing start to what turned out to be a stale and boring brew. Te only notable thing here is the boozy petrol finish. Bleh
