This is a little too weak for me, but not too bad. Has a very nice aroma.

A rather boring beer. I tried this ale once in a local tavern & wasn’t very impressed at the time and thought that maybe there was something wrong with how it was served or stored. Some months later, I bought a 4-pack of 1-pint cans at a local supermarket and hoped that maybe I’d experience a more livelier taste. Unfortunately, I was not too impressed by this ale and I probably won’t be buying any more of it in the future.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2004 Some of the smoothest stuff you can pour from a can. Perhaps not too much character, but I like it anyhow. Easily accessible even in Norway, a lot better than most of the stuff we get here.

Just average. A friend and I checked out Fado’s in Atlanta and this was the only thing on tap I hadn’t tried before. I finished the glass, but don’t think I’ll ever go for it again.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2011 Boring nitro keg bitter, ultra smooth but tasting of next to nothing. It looks cool, I’ll give it that.

A friend of mine suggested we split a 4 pack of this one night. It was terrible. It tasted as if I had opened it, put it in the fridge and went back the next night to drink it. Would not buy this again or accept it as a gift.

cathcacr (642) - Oregon, USA - MAR 18, 2002
Hoping to try a good new brew, I tried this out on tap at the ’pub’ and was quite disappointed. Quite mediocre (average to below average), is my overall impression. Most disappointing, perhaps, was the empty character in the taste and palate. Wasn’t bad or repulsive, I mean there was some taste to it, but it was just . . . empty. I doubt that I’ll lay down money for this one again. What am I missing that many others here seem to be getting? I don’t get it.

Definitely better from the tap. Good balance.

Reminds me of Old England!

This isn’t really bad, it just isn’t really good. Perhaps ’weak ale’ would be a more precise category for this. There are some good flavors, just not enough of them. Definitely under-hopped, and despite the nitro-cap, is strangely under carbonated.

Bright gold with med creamy white head. Head swirled around interestingly for a short while. Good lacing. Mild milk-like aroma. Mild and sweetish with a decent amount of fruitiness. Creamy and flat - would be a pretty good beer if it had some body and carbonation to carry the flavor. Almost.
