Pretty good stronger/cheaper alternative to canned Smiths, a very good buy if you nip down the local co-op and have only got the choice of cheap lagers etc!

SpiderJon (2) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2013 does not count
Nice dark-copper colour, and reasonable aroma, but it has and unbalanced malty/caramel taste. Very little depth or complexity of flavour, poor hop taste. Definitely not a "premium" beer.
