Fairly average, middle-of-the-road, slightly sweet/malty ale. Slight caramel on the nose and flavor. Easy to drink.
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2017 smells of sweet malt, taste is same... straightforward with some alcohol taste...no hops...one dimentional and basic...more watery with time... Had on 34th birthday and #1600! Westy1130 (94) - New York, USA - JUN 27, 2017
Drank this a lot in the late 90’s. Biscuity malty aroma and taste, very mild hop presences. Pairs great in a Guinness black and tan. Rubin77 (2113) - Brussels / Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUN 25, 2017

Une ambré classique avec un goût caramélisé prononcé et un léger goût fruité. TrefwoordPunk (1194) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2016
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear amber with a big pinkish white head and an aroma of toffee, cream, sweet malts and corn. The taste is medium sweet with low carbonation and some slight bitterness in the finish.

25cl bb01/2017, BL sampler. Bref: does for UK pale ale, Belgian-style, what Stella and Jupiler did for lager, Belgian-style: adjunct sugars and cardboard. Sweet wet cardboard in aroma substitute malt caramels, a touch of rain-drenched labrador and the faintest whiff of black tea. Mainly faint diluted saturated sugars in taste, then some UK-ish tealeaf bitters coming through to add the only touch of peppery character. Dryish palate, short black tealeaf finish. Basic Ersatz pale ale for a beautifully simple, bygone era when this was called "pel el"... BenL8 (205) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 29, 2016
Very sweet with some Belgian flavours finishing in a mild lageresque way. Not really a pale ale, not really any discernible style... Sweet sugar water beer. ruigo (2943) - PORTUGAL - MAR 29, 2016
25cl bottle. Pours an amber colour with an thin off-white head. Aroma is yeasty, caramel and grassy. Average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is light bitter. Overall, a bit unbalanced brew with strange notes in the aroma and flavour. Drinkable though. dynamiteninja (1863) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2016
Bottle. Medium white head. Amber body. English malt, wheat, Belgian yeast, iron, beef, Belgian hops, pine resin. Sweet. Oily and dirty mouthfeel. Dry finish. Well carbonated. Too sweet and cheap and adjuncty. sjogro (4128) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2015
