I like this ale quite a lot. It has a well-balanced flavor to it with a hint of sweetness that makes it fairly easy to down. A bit overpriced, but definitely a keeper. guinness4life (37) - USA - JAN 18, 2003
Good, inoffensive british ale which tastes like a slightly milder and less hoppy version of bass with less bite and aftertaste as well. The real attraction is their pub druaght can however. The beer has the best head I"ve seen on a beer that wasn"t guinness or murphys that wasn"t on tap. The texture (though of course not the taste) is simply delightful reminiscent in fact of guinness. Overrall decent to good tasting beer magnificently easy to drink due to its divine texture. A little too expensive though.... Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 18, 2003
Yellow color with small white head. Aroma was subtle with english hops. I didnt like the flavor at all- there was something off about it. The hop flavor was muted by a wierd unrefined metallicy, almost apple-juice like taste. Blech. I really didnt like this at all. GermanBrews76 (680) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2003
Off tap, as every can I"ve ever opened ended up half foamed over. Light and pleasant. Mildly bitter, citrucy sweet. Kind of wierd though and not in an impressive way. Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2003
Pours very nice, but when it comes to flavor, it seems to be lacking. Seemed to be a bit thin.

It pours nicely, makes a good, thick, creamy head, and looks good in the glass with a nice copper color. However, it has little aroma and a watery flavor. Orlan (25) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 8, 2003
No substance - Good marketing though means its widespread - why?? djbuddha (90) - Many, Louisiana, USA - JAN 1, 2003
I had heard talk about this before, but had never had the opportunity to try it. To my surprise, they had it on tap at my usual pub this New Years Eve. I tried a pint of Salvator first (letdown), then the rest of the night I drank these. I was very surprised to see them bringing it to the table. It was very nice looking, as it was just starting to settle. After my second taste (the first seemed to be all head)I was pleasantly surprised. This is the first bitter I’ve tried, and I believed it was excellent. I think I may have a new favorite at the pub, if they’ll keep it on tap. drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2002
Well, as seems to be the trend with these UK brews this was gorgoeus. The swirling mass of yellow nitrous waterfalls and beautiful golden color prepare you for something remarkable, but leave you wondering where the hell the flavor is. I mean, why do these people spend so much time making these look great and completely gimp out on the taste. This was absolutely watery and void of flavor, truly disappointing. dev (50) - Savannah, Missouri, USA - DEC 29, 2002
The head on this was great. the first half tasted great. the second half tasted flat on all cans tried.
