2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I tried this beer on November 27, 2008 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a translucent reddish-gold with a bubbly tan coloured head and plenty of effervescence. The aroma was grainy and skunky and not at all appealing. Definitely an ESB. The mouthfeel was medium bodied and medium carbonation (despite the effervescence). The flavour is bitter with some grain and citrus notes thrown in.

(Bottle): Pours a clear golden colour, small white head. Aroma of malt, grain, grass. Flavour is a weird tasting malty / grassy combo. Some notes of citrus and caramel too. Iím not sure I like this, probably a shoddy beer sold using the Monty Python marketing.

Bottle. Tan with a bright white head. Almost no aroma. Just a little lighter than I like an ESB to be. I do like the gimmick though. Itís fun.

Your average English bitter in a sponsored package. All in all good for what it is.

Amber color taste of malt a tad bitter. Its a fair beer probably wonít purchase again. But if you like beer and Monty Python then you have to try it.

12 ounce bottle. Pours an amber color with a three inch white head that collapses. Taste is of corn, malt, grains and some fruit and some hops. Similar, clean aroma. Has a clean, wet body. Easy to drink, kind of refreshing, but not that great.

Bottled 26/10/13. A golden beer with a pool of whitish head. Insipid and dull. Lemony and creamy especially in the nose. Not good.
