Cask at the Anchor, Birmingham. Poured a clear amber with a thin bubbly white head. The aroma is weak malty. The flavour is smooth, chewy and uber malty with some fruit and a nice smooth bitterness on the palate and into the aftertaste. downender (8723) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2009
Cask-conditioned at the Cross Hands, Winterbourne Down, S Gloucestershire 18/05/09. Golden in colour with a slight, lacy white head. Citrus hop aroma with some malt sweetness and hay. Flavour began sweet, before a touch of grapefruit and orange and decent dry finish. Drinkable. DruncanVeasey (8261) - Nr 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.

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

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 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.

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.
