500ml bottle as ’Copper Dragon’ Best Bitter (4% ABV): from a local Co-op store. Poured carefully into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ badged UK pint vase shaped glass at home on 22nd July 2016 during a random tasting session. Beer shared with no one! Looked good, clear and clean: amber coloured with a white, lasting head. Caramel, toffee and treacle in the malty nose: taste is also led by malty molasses, good, sharp hop bitterness in the flavours too. Obviously uses the caramel flavour to carry the brew, but I like it. My sweet tooth completely taken by it.

Cunningham (7969) - Halden, NORWAY - APR 21, 2016
Deep golden color, with a quick vanishing off white head. Light caramel and a bit fruity nose. Ok moderate hoppy flavor with some caramel and a pleasnt fruity background. Medium carbonation even from a bottle, a fresh and nice mouthfeel. Ok Balance between sweetness and bitterness. Decent body for an 4% beer.
[Bottle from a grocery store in Liverpool, England]

zacgillbanks (5180) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2016
Bottle from Wine Rack, Skipton. Amber coloured with a thick head of white foam. It has a burnt toffee, malty and marzipan flavour with roasted notes and a nutty, bitter finish. Not bad.

500ml bottle from Booths, Penwortham. Pours clear amber, short-lived white head. quite high carbonation. Aromas are malty and nutty. Taste is twiggy earthy hops, astringent malt. Thin, slightly astringent finish. Bit dull.

beeebon (450) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2015
Bottle from Home Bargains, pours a clear copper brown with lasting white head. Aroma is biscuit malt, grassy and slightly floral hops. Taste is medium bitter and mildly sweet. Nothing special but rather decent for the price and style, a decent session ale!
