UPDATED: OCT 16, 2003 impossibly bland crap. tastes of very faint malt and not much else, you could be forgiven for thinking it's a lager if it wasn't for the silly shaving foam on top.

Clear,dark gold. Nice creamy head, looks good. The beer is smooth and does have nice body and a slight..im mean slight trace of hops in the finish but nothing really along the lines of any kind of flavor..just simple and smooth..actually quite enjoyable when you just want a beer.....

Where’s the flavour? All it had going for it was the appearance. Tasted like a really watered down macro. Ugh..

UPDATED: MAR 5, 2004 I like this beer just as much out of the can as on draft, thick creamy white head, very smooth body, very drinkable, darkish-golden color, excellent balance, great beer

This is a nice creamy ale with a little bitterness. It has a nitrous capsule to give it that draft head. It is a good meal beer or if you only want one.

Definately not worth the price in my mind. Just had a dirty taste.

Great creamy head and looks good as it settles. Not too much flavour, i did pick up soft honey flavour, and picked up some burnt hops, but this was only momentarilly. Really nice and smooth, maybe tended to be a bit bland.

A perfect example of a British Bitter. Little hop aroma and a light, refreshing flavor.
Carbonation is light as the style would suggest and when combined with nitrogen despensing (either off tap or special can) makes this ale creamy and easy to drink.

I disagree with the previous reviews. Hardly tasting flat, this beer tastes round. If that doesn’t make any sense, it’s extrememly creamy and pleasant. I followed this beer with several different stouts and then by mixing a framboise lambic with a stout and hefeweizen, and, amazingly, the taste of the beer held up after these ’stronger’ drinks. Very worthy.

Very nice in the can, nicer on tap, but not too different. Flavor could be a bit stronger.
