An unimpressive pale ale. By that I mean it didnít make much of an impression on me. Itís not bad by any means, just unremarkable. Slight hoppy/fruity nose, copper color. billbís rating agrees with my experience. Mediocre sums it up.

Iíve been drinking Whitbread for many years now and it seems that the quality and taste profile of this brew has gradually diminished over the last few years. The intense toasted bread aroma and taste just isnít there as it used to be. Still a decent English Ale, but not the brew it used to be.

Nothing much to say about this brew. Not much aroma, not much flavor, average color and average mouthfeel. The pinnacle of mediocrity.

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2003 Re-rate from a better sampling. (Cincinnati brewed bottle). Dark reddish color, with amber tinge, full head. Nice looking beer. English ale yeast fruitiness in aroma with moderate earthiness and caramel malt notes (Maris Otter?). Well balanced flavor, with full nutty caramel malts and nice backing bitterness. Low on hop flavors. Smooth. Well done pale ale and quite drinkable.
