This is basically the definition of beer to me. So great to drink, all the smells and tastes of hops/malt that you would want and NONE of them have been overdone to the point where you would get tired of it after one or two. Definitely worth it even though it’s usually 11-$12 a six pack around these parts.
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2017 0,5l Can. Taste is light malty with light malt, biscuit and toffee yet hoppy with grass and straw. Finish is malty and balanced bitter. AleMan84 (2) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2017 does not count
My favourite Ale pours dark amber with a fantastic hoppy aroma, has a great balance of bitterness, hops and malt complex but easy to drink, a top quality ale. loscovar (374) - Villeneuvette, FRANCE - JUL 23, 2017

UPDATED: JUL 7, 2017 Bottle. Clear, light brown color, nice white head. Malt, bread and grass aroma. Dry taste, high bitterness, light sour. Malty, bitter aftertaste, but a refreshing bitterness. Medium texture, fresh carbonation. thepatrickman (1358) - Jevington, East Sussex, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2017
Pint at a wedding. This isn’t the most exciting bitter in the world, but it doesn’t have many flaws, either. There’s a big caramel sweetness at first, but it never gets cloying, and there’s a hint of earthy/minty hops at the end. ChadPolenz (1821) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 3, 2017

2015 BJCP Category: 11B Best Bitter
AROMA: Very sweet nose with prominent caramel and toffee character. Slight buttery aroma, which is acceptable and complements the confectionery sweetness. Little to hop presence. 8/12
APPEARANCE: Fairly dark copper/amber hue. Mostly clear. Moderate off-white foam. 3/3
FLAVOR: Strong caramel and toffee flavors along with a red apple aftertaste (almost juicy). Firm dry bitterness on back end, slight toasted bread/biscuit flavor. Faint touch of chocolate. Slight diacetyl presence, but it’s not distracting (acceptable). 16/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body and carbonation. Very smooth and refreshing. At 4.7% ABV it’s quite tempting to session this. 4/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: Mostly well-balanced palette of sweet confectionery flavors and earthy/spicy hops. Highly drinkable. 8/10
TOTAL SCORE: 39/50
