In 2003 production and distribution was switched to Latrobe for a 12-18 period after which it reverted to the UK, latterly at InBev’s Samlesbury brewery. As of 2012, the US version was being produced at A-B InBev’s Baldwinsville brewery.

yespr (40417) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2007
35,5 cL bottle. Pours deep orange and clear with a light brown and diminishing head. Sweet and roasted malt and slight citric aroma. Flavour is soft malty, roasted to a bit of toffee, in addition it has a slight acidic/citric twist. Ends dry and bitter - very classic English.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2007
Canned (5.1%, so this one most likely). Clear copper colour, small head. Aroma is caramel malts, some slight wineish hints as well as hoppyness. Flavour is caramel and hoppyness along with strong balancing maltyness. A very smooth and pleasant brew.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Pretty, light brown colour (unfortunately partially from colourants) with a rich head. Some caramelish sweetness from the malts balanced by the bittering hops. Weak notes of fruit and nuts. Decent, but no real treat. 090301

Bottled (5.1%) Brownosh amber, clear, fairly rich head. Lightly ashy nose. Sweet with dense malt and rounded ligtly soapy mouthfeel. Perfumy, lightly peppery and fruity with some melon. Low bitterness. Streamlined. Not an attention catcher.

Travlr (21400) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 27, 2014
This was my go to British ale before I lived in the UK and discovered what real British ale tasted like. This version more closely resembles fizzy yellow American macro liquids, gold in color, light in bitterness, flavor and body.

fiulijn (19096) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2005
Amber color; poor head. Sugary aroma and taste of sugar floss, plus caramel and caramel again… boring.
