Light in color for an English ale, weak nose. Both are indications of what is to come: nothing. A tasteless, low alcohol waste of money. Buy Bud Light instead.

On tap at a restaurant in Des Moines, IA. Pours orange with a small white head. Aroma is caramel and hops. Taste is lightly sweet, moderate hops with a mild bitterness, caramel. Medium mouthfeel. A pleasant drink.

On draft. Not much aroma. Pours orange. Taste is bitter with a nice hoppiness. Good summer time beer in my opinion. I could drink a few at a time. Not sure why it is rating so low on here.

Clear golden amber with fluffy white head. Aromas of hops and malty undertones. Taste slightly too sweet for me. Some bitterness.Creamy texture and soft carbonation.

joejames (96) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Draft @ Golden Crust, Red Lion, PA. Pours amber/brown, head was thin but lacing was there. Aroma of bread, nuts and herbs. Taste is mildly bitter, lots of malty sweetness. Body was light, medium carbonation, mouth feel was a little thin. Finishes earthy bitter (herbs, flowers) and toasty malt sweetness. A good example of a English style bitter.

With my parents on the way to the Lakehouse. Aroma is idk I am drinking from the bottle. Taste is nice smooth bitterness on the earthy side but fresh and light. I like it. I order this stuff when I am out and there is not too much on tap.

It's like a simple slightly oaky nutty lager. There is nothing offensive about it, but it's pretty tame overall. The oak aftertaste stays in your mouth for a long time.

On tap at The Landing in Boston, somewhat bready, fairly mild, hoppy ending.

Pretty bitter and very palettey, no bad aftertaste though, which means if you can deal with bitter it won’t last afterwards.

reebtogi (4035) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 14, 2014
Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pours a clear pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel with some light fruits and floral notes. Taste is a fruity and malty sweetness with a grassy and herbal bitterness. Light bodied with good carbonation leaving the palate satisfied. A well done English style bitter which is easy to drink and quite tasty.

Cirrhosis (1192) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 12, 2014
On tap at Beer Rev. I am at home now lying in bed doing a review from 45 min old memory.... May god have mercy on my soul. Taste good, smells good, looks like a relish beer, what else can be said? Tons-o-flavour for such a low alc. No real faults, maybe just maybe hints of soap. Now as I lie in bed to lazy to have brushed my teeth I can taste metal and caramel in the lingering after taste. I could drink the ship out of this beer!
