I dont like English ale at all... but I like this one. Like all English ales, it stinks when it’s poured and its flat. It tastes darn good though! A lot of ales try to be this good. The local pub had it all the time and it was fresh and good and I never had a bad glass. I cant say that for most english ales I had. Its a nice hearty pint of GOOD ALE!

Classic bitter aroma. Pretty in the glass with that creamy white head and perfectly still golden body. Very smooth and refreshing to start, before bitter notes and sweeter ones fight it out. Creamy finish with a lingering bitterness. Quite impressive and up there with the best bitters I’ve had.

Cask, Mariners Great Yarmouth. Golden amber appearance with fast fading thin white head. Aroma of biscuit, bread and malts. Taste of biscuit, some light citrus flavours with a slightly bitter aftertaste. It’s okay, drinkable but nothing remarkable.

From many pubs over many years. This is one of the UK’s great cask beers, and it’s good enough that I’ll often choose a pint of it over an un-rated cask beer when I’m in a pub. It stays true to style, with a light sweetness, moderate bitterness, and a gentle mouthfeel, but the combination of the "toast and biscuits" flavor from the Golden Promise malt and the Styrian Golding hops elevate this to a world-class level Bitter. Excellent stuff.
