2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from local M&S. Pours a nice amber with a liight white head. has a very light aroma of hops and a bit of cereal. taste is very light, slight bitterness coming through. Body is also very thin, watery almost. Finish is bitter but short. Basically not enough of anything here to make it worth recommending. The basis of a good beer but just that, a simple UK take on an American ale, without any of the attitude. im suprised it came out at 2.9 actually.

Sweet maltiness, mild hops and a hint of bitterness in the aroma.
