Good strong hop smell that means business. Looks like a full bodied ale. Pours with a decent head. Strong, smooth malt flavour and after taste. gerome (21) - FRANCE - NOV 1, 2009
Pours a fairly transparent brown with a gorgeous frothy head and very nice lacing. Aroma of bitter malt, nut, and hop- subtle, but nice. Flavor is delicious- a tad bit thin, but really smooth. Excellent stuff.

Excellent, excellent beer. A very difficult beer to dislike, or even find fault with.
Typical english ale malt profile, hops come through a little more, giving a grassy, herbal undertone to a carmel/toffee/spice charactered beer.
The rich copper color is capped by a thick, off-white head.
Aroma is sweet, caramel and spice. There is an interesting sweet aftertaste, that I can only describe as lingering sweet cream.
Serious English character, serious taste, and a serious beer for serious beer drinkers. Not a beer to pass up. sdabvl (20) - PERU - JUL 15, 2014
Aroma: caramelo y cafe. Apariencia: color ambar oscuro, pocas burbujas y poca espuma. Sabor: entre dulce y amargo. Paladar: cuerpo medio textura un poco cremosa con un final un poco amargo. En general: buena pero por el mismo precio se pueden encontrar mejores. Salud!!! AmicusBeer (19) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2008

Pours a reddish amber with a tan head. Very hoppy in aroma and flavor. Not my favorite style but definitely a well brewed beer. jagdpanzer (18) - USA - MAY 9, 2003
Best English Ale I have eer had, very good Bottle Conditioning. Fruity in taste, good creamy head with a hint of licorice giveing it a bitter sweet taste. I wish i would have bought more. Very Very Impressive. If you like the strong bitter sweet Ales from England this is one to try. monkeycmdr (18) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 23, 2004
This is a great plain ale, you really can't do better. It's eminently drinkable, with a pleasant aroma. When I first had this it made me smile because the taste seemed to contain equal parts of everything I liked about other ales. Not all that easy to find, but worth it. It's good cold too.
