I sampeld this under the name of Tesco’s Finest Ale and it’s pretty good. Sweet and caramel in taste, but a lovely amber colour. Smooth and fruity - very drinkable.

DarkStar22769 (100) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2008
An unassuming beer; sampled from the bottle on holiday. The aroma is fruity malt. The appearance is copper with thin carbonation and lacing. The taste starts off with fruit (berry-ish) then presents a not-long-lasting hop bitterness. Palate is on the thin side. Not bad.

Bottle. Pours a light golden colour with a thin white head. Their is a light citrus hoppy aroma. The taste is malty with a citrus flavours with a long dry finish. Not a bad beer from a good brewery.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 20, 2008
Bottle in London. Orange/brown colour. Tall foamy head. Hoppy nose. Soapy, creamy flavour. Some caramel. Too much carbonation. Fair enough. Nothing particularly interesting about it though. (Fair enough as I scored it at Tesco...)
