3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Townhouse in Milliardville. Color is golden amber. Head dies off quickly. A fairly bland brew with just enough malt and hops to qualify as beer. Pleasant. Unremarkable. Perhaps a good session beer.
Um...as I get further into this pour I’d say the above is unfair. It has enough hops to qualify as a decent bitter. Some fruit and caramel evident as well. It’s an older, more traditional brand, so it’s not a highly hopped beer along recent trends.

Taste depends very much on the pub where your drinking it. in a good pub this is a rich red colour a small head. it leaves a slighly bitter taste. All in all thisbis a good pint

Prior experience in bottles has been wonderful--that was a long time ago, and my tastes have moved one--but I just had some from a cask (at a very reliable pub) that was absolutely terrible. So watery. Aroma and flavor of barn straw and cardboard. Don’t know where to go on this.

not much in the aroma his brew was served too cold yet it was marvelous. big long 20 ounce glass this red brew was surprising with it’s lingering bitterness that was quenching and addicting. just a waft of fruit so beery and refreshing. hard to describe the power of a simple brew simply done right.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear copper colour with white head. Very little carbonation. Aromas of malt and floral hops. The taste is very full with sweetish bread-like malts and hints of fruit. There is a great balance with the earthy hops, making for a great, very drinkable pint. An English classic.

Ambrée orangée limpide. Mousse blanche persistant sur les bords.
Arôme malté, caramel. Manque de rondeur.
En bouche relativement ronde avec une douceur d’entrée caramel et ensuite l’amertume de fin de bouche mais restant arômatique.

A justifiable English Classic. Maltier than most English bitters with caramel and marmalade quite discernible. Also pleasant floral and earthy hops. Palate is smooth and sessionable with good balance of sweet malts and bitter hops. Lightly carbonated like most real ales in this country. Cask at The Victoria, Paddington.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2014 Looks good. Golden orange. Dissapointed with aroma. Felt could have been stronger. Bitterley taste builds as you drink the pint. Lovely aftertaste. Definitely a good beer if out and about and want something safe. Won?t dissapoint. This is one that I first drank years ago. My taste has developed since but if in England and playing safe would still choose.
