Bottle is smart and chunky with a vibrant spitfire label.
A powerful grass aroma, almost joint-like.
Lovely lacing and a rich gold brown in the glass .
Grassy, earthy and marvellously bitter.
A nice chewy and foamy texture with a good lingering of the bitterness. AlutisLt (57) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - MAR 11, 2013
Typical, but strong taste. Found in cans in one local shop - interested only because of the price was low... Tom303 (136) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2014 Aroma is caramel/toffee, fruity, spicy - very pungent. Reasonable head that sticks around for a bit. Fairly lively on the carbonation for a bitter. Colour is deep brown/orangey red/copper - classic british bitter colour with a bit more brightness to it. Taste is a slight sweetnesswith fruit and then bitter spicy flavours. Again, pungent is a good word to describe it. Fruit and bitterness/spice dominate. Strong tasting for it’s strength. All in all a beautiful full flavoured yet east drinking beer from top brewers shepherd neame. AtronSeige (1538) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUL 23, 2013

Bottle. Off-white cramy good looking and lasting head. Clear amber body. Roasted malt and grassy aroma. Smooth mouthfeel and a good deal of hops flavor. I think a visit and a talk to the people at this brewery would be great. joe19612 (2929) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2007
A real english beer, fresh and hoppy, with a real smooth aftertaste .
This is a good session beer. mike_77 (6669) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2007
Crystal clear brown colour and thick bubbly head. Aroma of hop and lightly roasted malts. Taste is slightly bitter but not mouth drying. Malty, hoppy and slightly spicey in flavour. A great bitter.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2008 Great session ale this one, tastes what an ale should do and recommended. Very much has a malty taste during the pint, but thats good. Papillon (400) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2009
500 mL Bottle. Deep gold body with an off-white frothy head that settles to a tenacious foamy layer lacing the sides of the glass nicely. Sweet malt and caramel dominate in the aroma with tangy hops. Sweet malt and tangy hops make up the flavor with a hop bitter aftertaste that lingers in the finish with a note of caramel, hints of brown sugar and crystal malt, and with a nice smooth mouth feel. England, you’ve got an ace with this one.
