A very nice Honey Aroma and Meady taste. Not normaly a fan of the sweeter beers but this is quite a nice brew.

These english ales - particularly the massive, mass produced ones - are not normally my cup of tea. This is smooth and perhaps a bit bland, but has a nice, bitey, bitter finish. Smooth going down and easy to drink, but I wouldn’t have a lot of it

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweetish malt, coppery aroma and slight tang. Great looking tan body - like scotch. Big foamy off-white head that lasts the whole beer. Low carb with medium body - not oily but not watery. Smooth, low hops, mellow taste with some pleasant bitterness. Modest malts but not sweet. Refreshing beer.

One of my all time favorite beers. On tap is definitely better, and luckily a pub nearby has it. This is an old standby, for sure. Perfect refined bitter flavor for the bitter lover. That’s me.

I love this beer. It’s one you can even drink on a lunch break. The lack of carbonation towards the end makes it one of my favorites.

I’m a big fan of the bumble bee - one of my favorites. Not nearly as good out of the can as on tap. Probably one of the creamiest beers that I’ve had (in a much more positive sense than a beer like the Wexford Cream Ale). I’m having a hard time describing how good this beer is...
