At one time I drank this by the gallon on the half baked idea that this was approaching an authentic English ale. This was helped by the brewer’s generous amount of caramel and a stuffing that was virtually free of substance apart from a ripping acidity.

I don’t think this is made in England anymore, but Molson has made it in Ontario since the ’60s. My grandfather used to drink this before he discovered Sam Adams. Copper-amber colour. Slightly papery, plasticy tasting. Then comes the caramel - quite a bit of it, and a slight mineral note. It isn’t English by a long shot, but for Molson it’s a good beer. For Molson.

Thick nice presenting head, light brown in color. Tea, light bitterness, soft palate, hint of roasted malt. This is not one of the cleaner beers I had

I remember drinking this in the 70's when it was (along with Labatt's Gold Keg) the only non-porter/stout that had any colour to it. It was passable then, now the colour is all its got.

Tasteless, bland nothing interesting going on here, but it is from Molson, so....

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sweet malt aroma, copper, with a medium vanilla head. Mild malt flavour, small bitterness, fairly liveless in the mouth. Regular stuff, I wonder if it was better when it was from the U.K.? By the way, to answer Cartoon_khaki's question, Toby is the name given to the mug, in which one drank their beer, featured on the label.

Often hidden amongst other beer taps at a bar so that they look like they provide variety. I don’t think pub owners ever even hook up the tap. If bars ever took Monopoly $$$ I’d still be hesitant on ordering another
