Pours golden with big frothy nitro head (yep the widget can). Aroma is grassy. Beer is smooth but a sourness to it that i’m not very keen on. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, Pasteurised. Red amber beer with bubbly white head. Not a bad pasteurised bottled beer really, there is a malty, caramel body with a soupcon of hops but when compared to the marvellous cask version and its bottle conditioned brother, Hens Tooth, then it struggles somewhat. A reasonable fall back, but then why should you have to fall back.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Ruby red colour with small white head. Hoppy nose. Fruitish hoppy sting at first, afterward the flavour turns sweeter. Caramellish hoppy aftertaste (bittersweet one). Refreshing.

Love the carbonation in this type of beer. Foams up nicely with good head retention. Found that in the can version with the widget in it, it is almost as good as what is on draught in England. Malty finish in the body and very smooth. A favorite.

Pours a brownish-red color with bubbly head that fades quickly. A bit hazy as well. Smell is of very sweet malt and that is what I taste as well. Lightly carbonated and mildly hoppy this is a decent brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Medium amber color with a spotty head. Aroma is slighty bready, rather sweet malty with a touch of hops. Flavor is rather similar with less sweetness and a stronger bend towards the hops; also present is an interesting element much like cumin seed. Finish is sort of acrid. Somewhat watery mouthfeel as is often the case with the more widely-produced British bottled beers, but there is ample gently dispersed carbonation. Ok overall, would buy more often at about 1/2 the $1.70 price for 12-oz bottle.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Creamy amber body with a very large toasted-white bread colored head, which is stiff and thick. Smell is sweet malt, english hops and some spiciness. Mouthfeel is creamy. Taste is spicy with apples, cinnamon, butterscotch, non-descript pit fruit, pepper, and a slight tonic water tang. Peppery finish. Decent brew considering its wide availability.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. clear bottle. Light amber, very little head. Aroma is disappointingly quite skunky with a hint of butterscotch and caramel behind the skunk. Flavor is definitely butterscotch; light malts; not much for hops. Thin yet very smooth and silky. Reminds me of Newcastle with a skunky smell and a little more butterscotch.
