Surprisingly good beer. Wasnít expecting it to be so good as it is mass produced but it was. Strongly bitter but well balanced, complex flavor and pleasant alcohol flavor. Good beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I quite like this ale, it is decidedly strong in alcohol, but actually doesnít taste to full of alcohol, a definite grown up persons bitter, with a definite bitter aftertaste, so more for the serious bitter lover I feel, it reminds me of the smell of proper old boozers in the north, heavy malty hop smell and flavour, I like!
