Casked at the Old Toad in Rochester, NY. Creamy head. Mild aroma, some hops and malt. Creamy taste. Pretty smooth as well. Mild hops. Good hops/malt balance. A fairly OK brew!

This intially smelled skunky and the taste was ridden throughout by that same aroma. Darn clear bottles make any beer less than what it could be.

Out of a pub can. Pours with a thick and creamy white head. A deep amber color. Grass, malt and a little earthiness in the aroma. Full in the mouth, but little flavor. It is very mild with very few hops and a little grass. Everything but flavor in this one.

On tap. I enjoyed the creaminess and nice balanced mouthfeel of this ale. It's a little pale in the flavor department, but the appearance and creaminess are very impressive. I much prefer this one to Boddingtons.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2004 This is a pretty good pale ale. It looks great and the bottle is cool, but the flavour I found to be somewhat mild. Also, it could be that I am Irish, but I felt little to no effect after drinking it. It's 5.2% alcohol though, so it's probably just that I'm Irish. As far as beers of this ilk I would recommend Whitbread Pale Ale or Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale

Yellowish amber body with a good sized creamy white head that is still in my glass after finishing it. Gotta love the way it settles due to the nitro-widget. Very mild aroma, a combination of light hops, and a bit of yeast. Slightly hoppy flavor, and thats about it. Very creamy in my mouth. Nothing all that special.

Very malty aroma, a tad salty. Nice copper brown colour, white foamy head. Hops, roasty flavour. Lingering pine hop aftertaste, alcohol. Not a great aftertaste. Palate is thin. A fairly standard brit pub ale.

Pours a really nice text-book amber. Big frothy head, white and lacey. Big time skunked, gone. It's too bad. Well I've had it before and it was quite nice. Will re-rate in the near future. Man that stunk!
