UPDATED: JUN 29, 2020 550ml bottle BBE in 9 months. Pours brown with good size head that leaves a decent lacing. Aroma of sweet toffee malts; simple but pleasant. Low carbonation, medium body but light on the palate; nothing special. Taste of toffee malts, occasional light roasted notes, moderately sweet; quite nice. Carbonation holds better if drank from the bottle and gives it an extra vibe. Easy to drink.
I used to drink this as an alternative to lager back in the day and it was often was the best brew of the night. Taste buds change but I reckon this is the same recipe. Now I’m 42 I realise this isn’t exactly a great ale but it certainly is iconic and a good entry point to getting people interested in ale in the UK, even if it is now owned by Heineken!

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2020 Appearance is clear hazelnut brown.
Aroma is medium, malty, brown bread, caramel but a metallic end.
Palate is moist, medium carbonation, with very fine bubbles.
Taste is sweet toasted malt, caramel, brown sugar and a mineral finish.
Finish is moist and minerals.
Overall toasted malt, caramel, brown sugar and a mineral finish 3.1/5. Samuel214 (3624) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2020

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2020 Bottle - clear dark amber with initial large head but dissipates to thin though lacing remains. Low carbonation. Faint caramel aroma - but not too sweet. Ok mouthfeel - different to what I remembered from the past. Ok tasting - touch caramel - decent finish. Not at all what I remembered - not brilliant beer but not bad. pytrysek (595) - - MAR 23, 2020

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2020 330 ml bottle. It pours amber and is watery with little head. It never quite settles though and is quite fizzy with a distinctive toffee taste. These properties make it quite unique and appealing. Beese (10005) - Tooting, London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2020 500ml bottle from Asda, Watford and drunk on 23/02/2006. It is what it is and for what it is, it’s not the worst beer in the world. There was a time when this was common as the only drinkable beer in terrible pubs. We’ve moved on a bit since then... now you can get Punk IPA... or just not go to terrible pubs.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2019 This beer has nice aroma and great malty aftertaste.. The body is light and the beer is slightly watery. The taste is more in bitter direction and remind you some refreshment.. Its ok i guess and you can enjoy this fresh taste..
Overall one good refreshing beer to drink with great aftertaste.. But over that nothing too special in my opinion... Jonasslavensky (77) - - NOV 20, 2019
