3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
440ml nitro can into a pint glass.
Pours a rich clear copper with a cascading tan had that settles into a two finger cap. Really good lacing and head retention.
Aroma has a definite metallic twang but otherwise is pretty light. Some pear and caramel but nothing really sticks out too prominently.
The taste is quite nice. Caramel and bready grain along with pears and some peaches. Caramel and toffee along with toast provides a light roasted character. Bitterness is sharp but pleasant although it comes close to being acrid. Finish is crisp and clean giving this beer tons of drinkability.
Overall, an average nitro English bitter. Not on the same level as Old Speckled Hen or Tetley’s but better than Boddington’s. At $7.99 a 4 pack, the price is alright and I can see myself picking this up again.

I bought this beer at the beer of the world in Geneva and I drank it at the lake. It is a light ale, I like when you pour the beer, giving a nice troubled copper color. The foam is creamy and brown-white. The taste is watery, one side of bitterness, a bit fruity, few hop and malt, particulary refreshing during the summer.

@oakdene forest, Ringwood, extra cold (yeah !), 1/2 a pint, light brown with creamy off white head. Aroma of caramel, malts. Taste is very smooth, weak bitterness, weak sweetness, light beer with a caramel malty base, smooth head is very sticky, softly balanced, bitter aftertaste, not so special, still it’s nice cold ;)

A popular session ale that I often buy a case of cheaply from my local supermarket for BBQ’s, camping & general get togethers, it’s not too
strong and very easy to drink & has one of the longest lasting heads of most ales I’ve had. Both original & smooth taste ok but I much prefer the smooth. Not one for the serious ale drinker but I can see why it is so popular.

For what it’s worth, one of the better beers I had in London. Very smooth, the nitrogen does this beer well. Decently balanced. It’s good and a very fitting beer.
