Mild hoppy and fruity aroma with a similar taste. Watery palate. A balanced and enjoyable bitter.

This is an old stand-by for me. If I go into a bar, and they have this beer, I will often order it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear copper brown with a medium sized but short lasting beige head. Very hoppy aroma, quite fruity initially, but as it warmed developed some more nutty malt notes. Dry and bitter, it hangs around at the back of the tongue to create a rather sharp finish. A medium level of carbonation gives it a good body. This definitely finished off better than it started for me, as I think as my palate became immune to the astringent bitterness I could pick up more pleasant attributes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a coppery gold, almost bronze. Decent white head. Somewhat sweet, malty nose. Traces of coffee. Malt flavor with a bit of yeastyness on top. Very drinkable with a chewy texture. Smooth, but hangs a bit in the mouth. My wife bought this for me, a nice suprise.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
An amber hay-colored bitter with a foamy head. Hand-pumped. At first, the beer is quite refreshing with citrus and hoppy notes. The mouthfeel was chewy at first and gave way to some dryness. The finish consisted of a bite of bitter, a little strong at first (but that could be due to the fact that I was expecting something a little more mild) and in the end not so bad. For me, this is a good "light" alternative and a fantastic session beer.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Before I had this, I had never enjoyed anything from the U.K. This beer got me interested in trying other beers from England. Most ratings over 3.5 do well explaining the details of this beer. If you are reading this page to decide whether or not to try it, go for it. You will not be let down, even if you are not ordinarily a fan of the style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this on tap and fell in love. Clear brownish color with slight fruity aroma. Very smooth with a wonderfully complex taste. I also tried this in a bottle, very good, but not as good as on tap. Try the bottle first, then the tap. You wonít be disappointed. Definitely worth getting and hiding it from the relatives.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very clear bronze color with large head made up of ununiform sized bubbles. Aroma of English hops. Not much else comes through. Nice mild English hops. A bit sour malt but not much complexity. Even as it warms no real malt comes through. Decent bitter hop finish. Clean.
