3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear gold with a thick, creamy white head. Light hop aroma with faint note of caramel. Medium bitterness with some light malt flavor. A faint note of esters. Creamy aftertaste. Light and watery with light carbonation. A bit of malt aroma would make it better in my book. Nonetheless, on a hot day without better beers to drink, this would go down easily.

Pours tan with slight, creamy head. The taste is extremely creamy (thanks to the widget I would presume) and while slightly bitter, tastes pretty good.

A tan dirty brown color with a small head. Aroma is slightly musty. This goes down creamy, slight bitterness, pretty smooth. This was decent on tap, I dont think I will try the canned version.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2003 Re-rate: Pale gold with a thick, creamy white head. Aroma is a soft floral bitterness. Taste starts floral and perfumy bitter, then lightens on the finish. Creamy, smooth, and easy to drink, but a bit watery and thin.

I was turned onto this by one of the bartender's at Fado in Atlanta. Very smooth and creamy and easy to drink, a little liter than what I expected, but a great brew all the same.

Real creamy and easy to drink. I prefer beers with a bit more kick. But this was just fine.

A pleasant light flavored beer. It has a mild malt flavor balanced with a hint of hop bitterness. Aroma is very mild with little hops in it. It’s a good one when you want a good light one

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I like this ale quite a lot. It has a well-balanced flavor to it with a hint of sweetness that makes it fairly easy to down. A bit overpriced, but definitely a keeper.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good, inoffensive british ale which tastes like a slightly milder and less hoppy version of bass with less bite and aftertaste as well. The real attraction is their pub druaght can however. The beer has the best head I"ve seen on a beer that wasn"t guinness or murphys that wasn"t on tap. The texture (though of course not the taste) is simply delightful reminiscent in fact of guinness. Overrall decent to good tasting beer magnificently easy to drink due to its divine texture. A little too expensive though....

Yellow color with small white head. Aroma was subtle with english hops. I didnt like the flavor at all- there was something off about it. The hop flavor was muted by a wierd unrefined metallicy, almost apple-juice like taste. Blech. I really didnt like this at all.
