UPDATED: MAY 7, 2007 [Canned] Dark amber. Finger high, thick head. Fruity aroma with a light touch of hops and liquorice. Fruity toffee flavour. Burnt, bitter aftertaste.

Very good beer. Went well with old fashioned fried fish. It has a great hoppy zest but easy to drink as well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2003 This one looks very pretty in a glass. A nice deep golden red colour, like a good Oktoberfestbier, and an excellent sticky clumping head that keeps you company till the bottom of the glass. Smells of fresh green apples and those rose-scented geranium things that grow in motelpogo's backyard. The flavour's honest, strong and not too prissy: fat, full and slightly spicy fuggles and shitloads of crystal malt. There's an elusive stewed peaches note that peeps its head around the corner after a while, and a satisfying thick buttery finish. RER8: even better from cask. has nice earthy hops like Adnams. simple, tasty and won't let you down.

Strong malt flavor, a little sweet, along the lines of a brown ale. Lacks the nuance required of a *great* beer but worthy nonetheless.

I love this beer. Its brown and creamy with a good head. Evident malt flavors with nice hop balance. I got it for about $10 a four pack and i will get it again.

Good bitter in the can. Better in the bottle. Best in the glass, out of the bottle (distinct taste diff glass v. bottle.) The carbon dioxide adds bite that the nitro widget lacks. Nice ruddy color, very good palate, though it clings a little long. Nice standing head. Strong, fruity aroma. Multilayered taste. If you like Fuggles and Kent Golding hops, this does the trick nicely.

The stuff in bottles, which I’ve rated, is an excellent standard bitter, well worth seeking out. The cans, for some reason, taste less distinctive, due to the widget (as Aurelius says.) Old Speckled Hen has the same problem.

About as smooth as anything I’ve had in a can. Golden with a very creamy head.
