STEVIE_NIX (35) - - MAY 3, 2013
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.

Light aromas of pale malts, grapefruit and pine with a decent citrusy bitterness on the tongue. Medium-light body with a soft mouthfeel and easy drinkability. A pleasant pale ale.
