This is not a bad beer and the flavor is ok, but there’s not enough of it. Definitely a little watery and hardly any aroma.

Light, very smooth, a bit taste-less and bland. Certainly not ’bad’, but.. not anything that a beer conessouir would get too excited over.
When poured into a chilled mug, it can be tasty.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2005 Creamier than ruddles and tetleys, which is pretty interesting. Seemed a bit unbalanced, with some rooty, hoppy tones that didnt seem to belong as well to this style. good beer though, very drinkable. Re Rate, i had this on draft along with tetleys and it stood out to me how much Worse boddingtons is. Very unbalanced compared to the smooth, rich bitterness of tetleys AND boddingtons has about half the body. Not as much flavor in it either.

A bit disappointed in this one, for all the hype I’ve heard about it. Pale in color, it is lacking in the hoppiness I like in most ales. Goes down ok, but a bit watered down tasting overall. One can spend their money better on beer by buying something else.

I had this on tap, and it must be a major improvement over the packaged versions. Very unusual look with nitro head on such a pale orange body. The flavor was altogether too light---the quality of the flavor was there--a mixture of hops and fruit tang--but not nearly enough of it. The lack of flavor made the relatively light body irritatingly hollow. This is almost a very good brew. It just doesn’t quite make it.

Was this a light beer, cause it sure tasted like one. Watery-thin, almost completely lacking anything in taste with more of a sourness than a bitterness. Many people I know have said good thigns about this beer, perhaps leading to my huge dissapointment. It even looked like a light beer with a orange-golden color.

A very nice creamy head. Nitro enhanced, deep amber ale. smooth finish, simple and quite enjoyable
