This is one of the best bitters out there for my money. I always perk up when I see it on draught.

Strong pale ale... Pas vraiment, très douce, pas très houblonnée, ni au nez ni en bouche

Pour is a hazy copper with a large white head. Aroma is a little earthy malt but not much else. Flavor is again a earthy caramel malt with maybe a faint whif of hops. Traditional but not very exciting.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
No sure about the hype. Is that only because of Madonna? This is one of the most tasteless, aromaless ales I have ever had. As forgetable as an ordinary, cheap lager.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark copper color with a small head that fades to spotty lacing. Aroma of citrus , caramel malt with bit of fruit in the background. Taste follows siute with a citrus nip then some caramel sweetness and bit of fruit. Nice bitterness and the finish is quite dry. Medium body, crisp and refreshing. Nicely balanced. Enjoyable beer. it’s nice to have a traditional style beer once in a while. Worth a try.
