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!

altonbrownd (3752) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Better than the bottle. Golden body with medium head. Nose is hoppy, floral and grassy. Taste caramel, maltier and nutty. Gets more bitter and hoppier in the finish. Enjoyable.

From cask at The Vine Inn, Manchester, with KL and LH 08.05.15. Golden. Uneven and diminishing off-white head and lacing. Slightly fruity aroma of malt and pale caramel. Similar taste. Very moderate bitterness in aftertaste. Good drinkability, though.

Come across this on tap in loads of local pubs around Rochdale and it never dissapoints looks good in the glass and enough hops and flavour to make it interesting a great session beer

Lovely amber color with a thick white head. Solid lacing on the glass. Fruity and floral aroma. Flavor are mostly the same with a nice smooth toffee backbone. A mild and yet tasty pint.

Kita (1365) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 8, 2015
On tap, half pint at The Argyll Arms, London. Clear deep golden color with thick creamy white head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of grassy and floral hops, caramel and toffee. Taste starts with light sweet caramel malt and nutty note, following is refreshing fruity and grassy with moderate bitter finish. Medium body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. Oh lord, incredibly smooth and easy drinking bitter...
