Decent, but somewhat bland. Nice malts and not too bitter, which was nice.

I bought this beer before going to my parents place to watch the Bengals play in their first playoff appearance in 15 years. They lost, making this beer the only enjoyable part of my day. 12oz bottle. Hoppy sweet flavor, long bitter finish. Nowhere near overpowering. Simply an enjoyable beer, pleasing for anytime.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2008 Color of an old penny. Hard to judge the head because it was served with a clear plastic cup to pour the bottle into. That being said, it made a small, rapidly dissipating head and left a little lacing on the plastic cup. Malty nose with a slight fruitiness. Nice balance of simple malts and hops in the flavor with a bitter hop finish. Had I not known the type, and been asked to guess, Iíd have guessed ESB, and a pretty good one at that.

Smells extremely pleasant - hoppy, but not overly so. Poured a great golden amber white a medium-sized white head. Taste is excellently smooth - medium bitterness, but very easy to drink and very good. Overall, itís an excellent English Pale Ale that could benefit from a bit more hops, but thatís not a dealbreaker by any means.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear copper topped by a bright white fizzy head, showing average retention and no lacing. Subtle carbonation with medium bubbles. Nose is malty, but grassy at the same time. Almost has a skunky feature. Some fruitiness as well. The same goes for the taste, but the malts are a bit more present and give a nice roasted cereal element. A bit aqueous, the finish brings back the resinous/grassy forth, with some faint bitterness. Nice roasted malts, but the hops are too skunky for me. Cheers!

Draft. Medium brown. Decent roasted malt flavor. Smallish off-white head. A little heavy in the bloat factor. Meh.

English yeast character in the aroma. Some light caramel flavour and some american hops. Bitter finish.

Nothing really stands out. No real aroma to speak of, little head. Dark reddish amber. My first sips tasted good; slightly fruity, refreshing. First beer of the night. After those first few sips it got boring. The further down the pint I got, the thinner and more tired I became of it. Very mild in all aspects, I guess a stepping stone beer.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep amber beer with a medium foamy eggshell head. Weak nose of candied nuts, caramel, and toffee, but itís pretty frigginí faint. Flavor is mild and watery. I guess thereís some malt there, but it kind of just lays flat on your tongue. It finishes with a bland bitterness. Overall, this beer is pretty tepid. Mouth feel is decent, I guess.
