Poor, very poor. I drank a Stone IPA, then a homebrewed wheat beer, and then this. I don't know if I can finish the drink. A thick, foul malt. There's a bit of hop, jumping about, but it's the malt that kills the beer. Thoroughly unpleasant. It sticks in your sinus, cloyingly, and tastes skunked, but by design. Displays perfectly the difference between a good beer and a mediocre -- no, awful -- beer. To those who define this 'English,' I've just come back from England and not come close to a beer so frightful. Drink this and drink newky brown with a hop flower.

Maxbier (601) - Maryland, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Pale slightly hazy copper color with dissipating white head. Musty lemon citrus and malt crackers aroma. Taste; first thing is big lemon citrus bitter. Malt feel is biscuity ESB type palate, hop is earthy English hint of lemon in the finish. This brew is as described on the label. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MadRobin (2260) - Silver Spring, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Nearly clear copper-orange with a 3-finger off-white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of caramel, earthy hops and pine. Rather bitter taste of grass, tobacco, pine, bread, earthy hops, mild citrus soap and caramel. More bitter than balanced. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Steverus0 (218) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Maybe the bottle was spoiled, but this is the most overly effervescent beer I've ever drank. While I suspect here are some good flavors in there somewhere, they're hidden in some extreme bubbles ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
