Run-of-the-mill pub ale. Nothing too exciting, but very very smooth. Taste does not substantially change. Somewhat creamy, but really, not too spectacular.

Rojiza parda, color de red ale. Escasa espuma y fuerte aroma a malta. Sabrosa en boca, bastante carbonica. Cafe, frutas rojas y sobre todo malta tostada. Equilibrada y agradable.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2015 (500ml bottle, Beijing) Appearance: nice, rich reddish amber. Moderate amount of off-white head, not overly visible carbonation. Aroma: Ale, sweetness, malt, wood, coffee, toast. Taste: moderately heavy, tight malt flavor upfront with significant hops and bitterness. Some underlying flavors of coffee/chocolate, smokey barrel. A touch of astringency. Palate: very dry on the finish. A bit flat in the mouth. Feeling lingers a while inside the cheeks. Overall: Nice beer. Tastes like it has more of a kick than 5%. Really notice the dry, hoppy finish. Not over-the-top in richness, so a good drinkerís ale.
High point: Very good nose, and the bitterness (if you like bitter beers that donít go too far).
Low point: a little bit flat in the mouth. And a tad too soft upfront.

Depper amber color with small White head. Aroma of caramalt and a bit of vanilla, and something that remainds a cat pee. Sweet caramel flavour,with hint of grassy, and a bit hoppiness bitter at the finish. Waterly with a soft carbonation, average beer but very sessionable i like it.

One of my first and still a Favourite, itís nose is Exquisite rich and very hoppy, bursting with malt, I think it smellís like a pudding.
Pours a fine light copper with a moderate white fluffy head, with an overall smooth, bold glow.
Itís feeling in the mouth is of full body and, with low carbonation.
Itís Taste is just what I like, strong malty character, with hintís of toffee which is slightly sweet and rather warm, with lots of Rum & Raisin, notes that fade in and out.
A long spicy finish reminiscent of Cinnamon and Faint Ginger.
I find this extra special with a meal, cheeses, and savoury dishes bring out more of itís Deeper Malty character.

Better than I thought it would be, after being previously unimpressed with a bottle of Greene Kingís IPA. Tastes like those beer bottle penny sweets youíd eat as a kid - and thatís not an entirely crap thing in a strange way. 6.5/10.

Barwa bursztynowa, piana kiepska. Aromatu praktycznie brak. Po za delikatnymi nutami słodowymi i lekkim utlenieniem nic tu nie ma. W smaku najbardziej wyraźna jest goryczka, mimo, że jest na poziomie średnio niskim. Po za tym jest to praktycznie woda.
