500ml can. Dark golden, fluffy white head, good lacing. Nose has caramel malts, a bit fruity. Taste has grains, caramel, some fruitiness and some sweetness. Finishes with a little grain and caramel. Light body, average carbonation. Pretty standard ale.

Just had a Neame Spitfire before this. This is closer to a lager, less sweet. Grassy and bready. Only faint late sweetness. Its easy to drink but I would probably take a decent lager over this, and there are certainly better ESBs.

The aroma took me back to Leopard Lager in the late 80s. I got all nostalgic for my innocent years, but the taste was a little odd, making my tongue feel like Id licked a 9 volt battery.

Graham77 (466) - SCOTLAND - SEP 17, 2016
440ml can from Asda. Very drinkable ale with good malt/hop balance. Golden colour, minimal head but fairly lively fizz. Aroma of malt, caramel and fruit. Taste is medium sweet and light/medium bitter, slight peppery spice. Finish is dry and faintly metallic. A good ale.

jamaty (2036) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 15, 2016
Dorada limpia, un dedo de espuma blanca. Fuerte aroma a malta y cereal. En boca es lo que anunciaba en el aroma, dulzona, muy cereal. Poco cuerpo, algo metlica. Solo pasa muy fra. Puff

Luneylane (78) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - DEC 11, 2016
A bottle at The Three Lions in Yuanshan. Aroma: hay, faint citrus fruit. Appearance: hazy, golden, minimal head. Palate: medium-bodied, rather thin in texture, soft carbonation. Bitter at the finish, but with a disappointing earthy aftertaste. Taste: a medium degree of bitterness, I couldnt come to terms with the flavour at the end. Perhaps the draught version tastes nicer.

Towey1989 (2119) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of cereal malts, bread, some caramel, subtle fruit and slight spicy hops. Taste of cereal malts, some caramel, subtle fruits, a little mineral and slight spicy, grassy hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A dry, slightly astrigent, grassy hop bitterness in the finish. Started off ok like a decent bitter but turned very thin, tasteless and astrigent. Quite disappointed because I used to like this on cask.

Malty well balenced bitter beer. Brilliantly drinkable. Caramel notes and a golden color. Best of British but nothing special.
