Poured red-amber with nice white head. aroma was malty caramel with slight citrus notes. Taste is initially of caramel, toffee malts giving way to a chocolate/slightly roasty malt flavor. Nice hop finish of light hoppy spiciness, herbal and slight citrus flavors. Finish is crisp and clean. Medium bodied. A very enjoyable brew.

Una birretta senza troppe pretese, che si anima di uno spirito inglese un po’ sotto le sue possibilità. Gusto che rivela una pianura di malti e note caramellate, con qualche arbusto isolato di luppolo che porta con se un tocco di amaro.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5 bottle. Clear, dark copper color with a reddish tinge and a small, cream-colored head. Aroma is yeasty, there is leather, wood, and a touch of malty sweetness. Taste is relatively soft and dominated by hops, slightly bitter and uneventful. Medium body, slick texture, and average carbonation. Finish is much bitterer than the rest but just as simplistic. Overall more could be expected of such a popular beer; serves well as a simple pub drink.
