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

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.

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....

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Off tap, as every can I"ve ever opened ended up half foamed over. Light and pleasant. Mildly bitter, citrucy sweet. Kind of wierd though and not in an impressive way.

Pours very nice, but when it comes to flavor, it seems to be lacking. Seemed to be a bit thin.

It pours nicely, makes a good, thick, creamy head, and looks good in the glass with a nice copper color. However, it has little aroma and a watery flavor.
