Not much body or flavor. Not much of anything, really. A beer for those that embrace the mediocre.

A brownish red strong ale with little head retention. Rather sweet and chocolatey for an English strong but decent none the less. Could be a little stronger and could use more body, somewhat thin. Very drinkable, I agree.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark amber beer wiht no head. The aroma is sligtly fruity as a typical ale. The flavor is a very rounded slightly bitter one. A very drinkable beer.

Redish orange color, flowery aroma, a little thin and light for an English Strong Ale, not much flavor. I doubt I will ever buy this agian,

nothing spectacular here. this was a decent beer but it was lacking something special to make it something that i would look for in the future. light red color, with decent head. earthy to fruity hop aroma. a bit of skunkyness present. i would like to try a very fresh bottle.

Good stuff. I bought two bottles at different places. One was fresh for sure, and the other was older. Let me tell you....breweries HAVE to stop using clear bottles, or at least UV coat them. The older one tasted terrible, completely different from the fresh one. Roasty, malty, yet sharp. Big body. Very pleasant drink. The packaging is top shelf, as well.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly skunky smell, malty finish, dark copper red. Not a bad English ale, but definitely not a Fullers.

Dark color-brownish red. Aroma same as pale ale. Good flavor
but I canít taste the roastiness. Little of a coppery finish.
Dissapointing hop finish. I LOVE the bottle. Wish it was conducive
to reuse with homebrew.

Aroma gives off a fruity flavor. This ale
starts with the fruity flavor that transitions into a aromic hop flavor
and ends with a slight smoky flavor. Very tasty!

This beer had the smallest bit of skunk smell to it. I think it is because it comes in a damn clear bottle. In any case, the beer poured a nice reddish brown color with a 1/2 inch white head. Tasted similar to an Oktoberfest style beer but maybe thats just me. Not bad.
