I dont like English ale at all... but I like this one. Like all English ales, it stinks when its 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!

Draft at Ye Older White Horse. Dark brown and slick, small creamy beige head, lacing. The definition of mild, gentle in both aroma and taste, yet still full of flavor. Nice mouth feel, rolls off the tongue. Yakes the bottle experience and ratchets it up a notch.
