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.

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.

PhillyBeer2112 (2640) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2002
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.

Dark golden color with a thick white nitrogen head. Creamy body. Light malty taste with a hint of roasted coffee. Very slight bitterness.

Looks can be deceiving My palate has changed condiderably since I first tried this ale. Thick and creamy head but rather thin body, weak hops and, well in a word, bland.

though may be viewed as an English bud light I find it excellent with a nice smooth taste with a great ale taste

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2003 RERATE 11/08/03: Golden body, white nitro head, nose is Kent Goldings and honeyed sweetness, along with a hint of Scotch whisky at times (?!). Body is flat, starts sweet with bitter middle and finish. Some soapiness, thin, watery, bland. I originally gave this a 3 for palate? Ugh!
