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.

I had heard talk about this before, but had never had the opportunity to try it. To my surprise, they had it on tap at my usual pub this New Years Eve. I tried a pint of Salvator first (letdown), then the rest of the night I drank these. I was very surprised to see them bringing it to the table. It was very nice looking, as it was just starting to settle. After my second taste (the first seemed to be all head)I was pleasantly surprised. This is the first bitter I’ve tried, and I believed it was excellent. I think I may have a new favorite at the pub, if they’ll keep it on tap.

Well, as seems to be the trend with these UK brews this was gorgoeus. The swirling mass of yellow nitrous waterfalls and beautiful golden color prepare you for something remarkable, but leave you wondering where the hell the flavor is. I mean, why do these people spend so much time making these look great and completely gimp out on the taste. This was absolutely watery and void of flavor, truly disappointing.

I thought this was average overall. It’s good, but doesn’t make me want to send them all my hard-earned cash. The head was about the most exciting part.
