Rex_Remes (108) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - APR 18, 2016
(500ml can, Beijing) Aroma: Simple nose of bread/yeast, hay, a bit of floral. Appearance: Nice, creamy head that clings and lingers. Color is golden amber, not much visible carbonation. Taste: doughy, cream, grain/whiskey, not much hop flavor, but some herbalness. Palate: a bit watery, with some oiliness, medium body, some bitterness. Overall: not as heavy as many typical ales, and also not too much special (except for the very nice head and the creaminess on the palate). Nothing really bad about this, but kinda boring. Would be enjoyable on a hot day at a barbecue.

AleRider78 (628) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2016
Pretty thick creamy head, maybe 3/4in thickness. Good lacing and retention. Has a pale golden appearance. I find it has some bready, malty aromas, a bit of wheats. has a bitter hoppiness to it. Slight watery mouthfeel. A lot of citrus type flavours, but mainly a big malty taste overall. Not bad.

Scipio (820) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2016
Pours an initial cloudy milky whitish color that slowly filters up into a clear golden. Simply awesome. Full, thick, long lasting, white head. Thin aroma, almost nonexistent. Some caramel and a little bit soapy. The taste is similar. There is more caramel. Bread, cereal, a little bit of honey. Short and very mild caramel aftertaste. Light in body, a very creamy, almost unique texture, and soft carbonation. Its extremely easy to drink. A good deScription might be "neutral." The taste and aroma don’t wow me, but I’m not offended either.

Cunningham (6909) - Halden, NORWAY - APR 1, 2016
Well it is nothing wrong with it. Just a bit to mild and kind of dull.
Clear deep golden color with a creamy off white head. Medium body and a soft carbonation. Moderate intensity in the aroma. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Caramel malty and some bready notes.
[Can from Systembolaget in Sweden]

If this is on tap, I usually will order it with some kind of salty/hot bar food. It goes amazing with wings, but not so much on it’s own. Classic English Pub style ale.... don’t hate because it’s common. The head is thick and the liquid is absolutely drinkable. Just wouldn’t drink it all the time.... too many other flavors out there!

Holy crap!! The English went and done it! Great beer. Malty aroma with a honey hint. Tastes like it smells. Great honey finish..

BeerRenter76 (725) - Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Originally rated on 6/30/08. Upon pouring it looks like the blonde version of a guiness, after settling it had a 2 finger thick head and pale yellow body, very little carbonation was present. Smells and taste of sweet honey and malts which were slightly bitter. Mouthfeel was nice and creamy. It was a pretty decent beer but i was expecting a little more.

A decent ale but underwhelming and a little disappointing compared to the golden look and smooth feel.

sneezey (135) - Hackettstown, New Jersey, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Weak smell with taste of slippery wrapping paper and polyester soaked in pine tar. Gummy tin like you accidentally bit into a roll of aluminum foil. Cheap root beer combined with chicken blood. A voodoo priestess spell gone sour. Avoid even when on the sale of a life time.
