A very nice amber. Smooth, easy to drink, but not overpoweing flavor-wise.

I was never all that impressed with this English Ale overall. A bit bland and watery. Made for the average beer drinker who may want to venture outside the box just a bit. Not very adventurous in flavor or aroma. Nothing bad, but nothing great either. Try a Whitbread instead!!

I thought this was a pretty good beer. Maybe the people that rated this badly had a bad bottle. The head was good, and lasted throughout the whole glass. Otherwise the appearance was very weak. The flavor was pretty good, though, and it has a decent aftertaste. I guess I was lucky and got a bottle that hadn’t sat for a while in the light.

Yea, edgeworth_m, you and I are on the same track on this one, although I thought it tasted more like a bad bottle of Molson - and from an amber ale no less. Pale brown color, bland vaguely skunky flavor (brown bottle, too).

Doesn’t really live up to its name. Not terrible by any means, but somewhat bland and disappointing. You’ll need a little Courage to sample this.
