Can that Dave shared- thanks (I think). Dull amber-brown; thin, fizzy and watery. Light malt and caramel. No sign of hops at all. A lot of metal. Slight dryness in the finish. I wasn’t around when CAMRA started, but can imagine that this dismal beer tastes similar to the low-grade keg bitters that so enraged their founding members.

Simple one shared with McTapps. Bit of straw mixed up with a few hops and mild bitterness towards the end. Balanced and boring with a dull finish. Bit below average. McTapps (6889) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle from Morrisons in Newport. Pours out in a golden-amber colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of bitter hops and barley. Taste of bitter hops, straw, nuts, grass and citrus fruits. Bitter finish. Refreshing, yet nothing special. ManVsBeer (10452) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Can. Copper, no head. Sweet and sticky, although not quite as much as other Cains brews, however it’s close and identifiably their style. s_hartshorne (2784) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2014

440ml can at 2.8% ABV. Amber with a fast fading white head; rather artificial estery aroma; sweet caramel taste with some cardboard hops to finish, leaving a sour aftertaste. Best avoided. JohnRMurdoch (4867) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 25, 2013
440ml can (2.8% abv) courtesy of mr_h. Orangy chestnut brown, decent head. Dry grassy caramel malt aroma. Oaty caramel malt flavour. Watery with bitter aftertaste. Not good. ralphdot (1094) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2012
3.5% amber colour with a good head, slight malt aroma, the taste is a bit thin, only slightly bitter. DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2014 1) 440ml can, BB 20th May 2009, drank 16/01/12. Had some trouble establishing who brewed this at the time, so decided to cellar it. Honey amber swirling with floaties, short-lived head receding to a halo. Aroma quite alluring, considering; apple sauce, wet cork, toffee and wicker. Some strudel-like spiced apple sauce flavour; definitely ginger, wicker. Probably nowhere near as interesting when in date. Lay it down for a few years. A fascinating experiment in ageing. But one which, for my own safety, I’m going to have to sit out.
2)39p tin. Still gold with a firm white collar. Aroma of wheat, something like peppery Belgian esters, clove even, slight orange squash tinged with vomit. Strangely alcoholic flavour with watery homebrew aniseed and fruit pastille yeast; slight wine gum, rubber, raw potato, candle wax. Barely Drinkable. piss poor.
