3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice looking amber ale. A bit sweet on the nose. Feels quite heavy in the mouth, with a combination of fruit and malty caramel. Tastes stronger than 5%. Satisfying and quite solid.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2006 Very nice ale. Deep amber red colour with good and lasting head. Aroma is roasted malt with hints of toffee and a light citric hoppyness. Nice hoppy bitter flavor on a sweet malty background.

Wonderful when in cask, one of the better nitro-can beers as well. Slightly hoppy, with a pretty mild bitter taste. Lovely english ale - Greene King - get this in Canada now, importing and holidays are too expensive!!

A nice clear amber color with a nice creamy nitro head. Some spice in the aroma, some hop as well. Smooth creamy taste. Some bitterness, but not really. Seems like it would be better casked and not canned, but overall a very good beer.

ive had this several times canned and on tap:
nice creamy head from the nitro keg, that should last a while if poured correctly. pretty thin beer a yellow browinish hue. and some slight hoppy character at the finish. easy to drink but not alot to it. one of the better nitro beers...bodingtons tedleys, etc. but these are not the things you want to see in the UK....its gotta be cask baby!!! but since we live in the us, itll be okay for now.

Had this in bottle. Quite a nice looking ale. Spicy nose, a little watery to start but hops dominate in the end. Not a bad beer but as with many other beers of this ilk, it could be better.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours cloudy and clears to a rich amber with white head. No discernable aroma. Flavor was non-existent and the mouth feel was weak and watery. Bad. Very bad.
