I bought this beer before going to my parents place to watch the Bengals play in their first playoff appearance in 15 years. They lost, making this beer the only enjoyable part of my day. 12oz bottle. Hoppy sweet flavor, long bitter finish. Nowhere near overpowering. Simply an enjoyable beer, pleasing for anytime.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2008 Color of an old penny. Hard to judge the head because it was served with a clear plastic cup to pour the bottle into. That being said, it made a small, rapidly dissipating head and left a little lacing on the plastic cup. Malty nose with a slight fruitiness. Nice balance of simple malts and hops in the flavor with a bitter hop finish. Had I not known the type, and been asked to guess, Id have guessed ESB, and a pretty good one at that.

MaltOne (337) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Pours light chestnut, brief white head. Faint malt aroma. Very light, approaching watery. Flavor is sweetish, light malt. A bit of fizz. Overall a good session beer. Pleasant but very light.

jmulv (336) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Smells extremely pleasant - hoppy, but not overly so. Poured a great golden amber white a medium-sized white head. Taste is excellently smooth - medium bitterness, but very easy to drink and very good. Overall, its an excellent English Pale Ale that could benefit from a bit more hops, but thats not a dealbreaker by any means.

English yeast character in the aroma. Some light caramel flavour and some american hops. Bitter finish.

Draft. Medium brown. Decent roasted malt flavor. Smallish off-white head. A little heavy in the bloat factor. Meh.

foduck (330) - Denton, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2002
Nothing really stands out. No real aroma to speak of, little head. Dark reddish amber. My first sips tasted good; slightly fruity, refreshing. First beer of the night. After those first few sips it got boring. The further down the pint I got, the thinner and more tired I became of it. Very mild in all aspects, I guess a stepping stone beer.

rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2010
Clear amber color, white head; fresh hoppy aroma with some doughy cookie notes; good body for the strength, smooth on the palate; pretty sweet flavor of biscuity malt with low bitterness.

On tap at Ginos East (OHare location) alongside the worlds best pizza. Pours slightly hazy orange-amber with a small off-white head. Lots of oatmeal raisin cookie in the aroma. Tastes mostly the same, but with a little more of a citrus/grass hop character. Medium-bodied, smooth, slightly bitter finish.

hillfiiiiire (323) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2008
Pours caramel like body with frothy head. Looks quite nice. However, the aroma is a little more sad. Smells of pine hops, but not necessarily good, The flavor is easy, but its not interesting. Its carbonated well. Overall, theres nothing bad about this beer, but theres nothing interesting with this beer. Im just bored.
