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!

Fresh round malt aroma, with a bit more bitter hop bite than some of the others I have tried in this style. Quite nice.

Cask @ The Three Fishes, Shrewsbury. Pours clear amber. Aroma is light, bready. Taste is perfectly fine, slightly bready, creamy. Inoffensive cask ale that doesn’t quite hit the high notes by modern standards.
