brontebeach (149) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Pours a nice light amber with a white head than thins with slight lacing. Not much in the nose but a good refreshing quench when it hits the palate. Quite carbonated, good bitterness and a tang of tangerine there and in the aftertaste. This is better than previous ratings imply, don't be put off by m&s branding. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
