I dont like English ale at all... but I like this one. Like all English ales, it stinks when it’s poured and its flat. It tastes darn good though! A lot of ales try to be this good. The local pub had it all the time and it was fresh and good and I never had a bad glass. I cant say that for most english ales I had. Its a nice hearty pint of GOOD ALE!

Decent, refreshing session type bitter, with enough hops to make it very easy drinking.

A really amazing ale. Full of hop and malt flavours that leave you wanting more. An amazing session beer that can be drunk from sunrise until sunrise.

Brewfoolery (27) - California, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Pulled a half pint at the White Horse. Honey golden clear ale with substantial white foamy head that persists. Clean lemon aroma hints on top of rich clean malt. Little persistence in the mouthfeel that allows a quick sip to follow. Bitterness persists with slight hop sweetness on the back of the tongue.

Cask 1/2 pint, Jolly Sailor, Poole, England, UK. Złote piwo o cienkiej pianie i łagodnym, chmielowym aromacie. W smaku cytrusowe z wyrazistą, chmielową goryczką na finiszu.

Smooth, well balanced and flavoursome beer. Amber coloured, with a good head and lacing. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Sweet toffee malts and some citrus zest, perfectly offset by the bitterness.

Cask @ The Black Bull in Blaydon. Served in clean Timothy Taylor Pint Glass, Perfect temperature, head size/retention, sweet flavour, subtle bitter finish. Truly awesome. I could drink it all night.

Cask, on this occasion in the Black Cat, Chesham. Bright golden amber colour. Solid malty base, lovely hop attack, marmelade, spicy, slightly earthy, not overpowering, moreish bitter. Hops pull through the house yeast flavour, which seems to need the hops, I don’t like say the Golden Best anywhere near as much. One of those beers that no longer tastes as outlandishly flavourful given the increased bitterness and hop quotients used in more recent times, but still retains excellent balance.
