Itís called ífootballí you heathens! Come on England!!!!! Opened mine as cannot wait. Last time I had this the aroma of passion fruit was overwhelming. This is different. Itís more citrus. Getting lemon and lime rind. Itís quite chilled so not getting full effect. Thereís something tropical in their but my nose canít pick it out yet.

Ok, Iím open as well. Oh and Iíve opened my SNPA too. Rated this July 2005 when still back in my RB infancy so probably is due a re-rate. Yes, mine pours with a slight haze and with some hard sediment in the bottom. BBE Jan 2013. No idea if that means its quite fresh or not. Bought at Ashford Tesco last night. Clearish amber colour with lasting ivory coloured head. Iconic beer. Every time I have it, I think about how much this has changed beer drinkers lives. A real gate way beer.

I like the stumpy bottle, I like the green label. Whenever anyone I meet slags off USA beers here in the UK I send them to a Tesco or a Sainsburys and say, buy this.

Poured into a Duvel glass.

Probably too cold. Slight vegetal on aroma. Wow, that was a disappointment. Vegetal. Is that an infection? Some hop sting on finish. Some malt, some hop. Mostly boiled vegetables. I wouldnít give this more than 2.8. This bottle isnít very good. Iíve had it before and the grapefruit has jumped out of the beer. This is just, well, not very good.
