3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of dry English style hops is dominant with some dry caramel malt notes also perceptible. Taste is also dominated by some dry English style hops with light floral undertones some white pepper notes and some dry caramel malt. Body is about average with good carbonation. Quite enjoyable and nice to enjoy a non-American style IPA once in a while.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Well this is a great description. It makes me want to drink it even more! It has a nice deeper golden/amber color with a super thick and bubbly white head. Aroma is of slight cinnamon, malts, hops and aluminum. Flavor is much better than what I was expecting from the aroma. Has a sweeter malt, prune, hop, and citrus flavor. Leaves a sweeter hop finish. Nice lacing. This is really good. I didn’t come expecting anything special with this being as it is a Coors product, but I’m pleasantly surprised.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Deep amber/orange, cloudy, minimal head. Subtle citrus blossom and bread malt aromas. Immediate upfront bitterness, honey and bread through the mid palate, followed by earth and pepper hops through a long, dry, bitter end. Relatively thin body. I've had better. Seems like a whole heap of bittering hops were used without flavouring hops as well making it very bitter but simplistic.

A great classic take on a classic style. Great UK hop nose, loads of fuggles, and goldings. Great biscuity malts, grassy, earthy hops. Super drinkable. Love it.

Des malts biscuits et légèrement caramélisés voire mielleux avec une forte astringence de houblons floraux. Le corps est svelte avec une effervescence douillette vraiment agreéble. J’aurais aimé essayé fraichement sorti d’un cask.
