Sweetly charming mass produced olde English ale. Would be nice to sup in a wooden beamed old pub on a rainy autumn’s day. A good supermarket find.

My favourite regular beer. It has it all. Flavour, strength, just about perfect.

Ktwse (3189) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2016
Pours clear copper with about a finger of off-white head. Aroma of light toffee, hints of raisin, mostly caramel and rye bread. Taste is sweet and roasty with toffee, burnt butter, raisins, very light bitter finish. Body is light to medium and smooth with soft carbonation.

SanfordBrewer (1423) - Sanford, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2015
Amber with a beige head. Moderate carbonation and body.
Aroma: grainy malt with a little wood, oxidation, and brett character..
Smooth and decent, but lacking refined integration of flavor components.

jjsint (1809) - Stuntney, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2015
500ml bottle from Waitrose. Auburn brown with a smattering of beige head. Smell of cheap cognac, rain-soaked oak and stone fruit. Full sweet taste with a nice hoppy note in the back of the throat. Full body, and unlike many supermarket bottles, not over-carbonated. It isn’t really my thing, but it’s tasty enough.

Hippoman (530) - Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2015
500ml Bottle from Tesco, Durham. Pours brownish amber with a very quickly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is sweet caramel and bready malts which carry through in its early flavours. The taste portends becoming overly sweet but thankfully this didn’t happen, with molasses and raisin flavours coming through on a pleasantly complex finish. Decent.

uckelman (506) - Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2015
Pours clear copper, tan head with fine bubbles. Aroma is mostly malt with a hint of something vegetal, freshly trimmed grass, maybe. Subtle flavors. Rather sweet, with a long, dry bitter finish. Not so crazy about the hints of raisin, but I don’t much care for raisins. Warming.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a thin head that fades. Easy drinking malty taste but would taste better on cask
