Light amber color. Poor aroma. Pretty smooth, a residual sweetness and some caramel, but not enough malty nor hoppy.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This bottle brought back memories, since the cask version was one of the first real ales I ever tried, at the Waggon and Horses in Newmarket. The U.S. version is a clear deep golden color, small white head and solid lacing. Aroma is slightly sour citrus, straw, white bread. Taste is slightly more bitter and peppery than its British forebear, with a dry and lager-like finish.
