a little cloudy but the mediocre reviews this beer has received is because of inconsistent preferences of the individuals who have rated it. A superior taste that has good balance between flavor, bitterness and aroma. Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 5, 2001
I wasn’t expecting much from this much maligned ale, but I found this fruity, malty, aromatically-splendid beer to be a terrific find. I’m serious: this is extremely good! stoutosaurus (157) - Clinton, Mississippi, USA - APR 30, 2002
Tastes VERY similar to Bass...must be a standard pale ale formula. It’s the lightest beer I drink, but I’m a pale ale fan. I like this one. GiddyBoy (121) - USA - DEC 24, 2002
I thought this was nice. Dark, flavorful, and the smell of caramel and chocolate. It had nice body, hops, and a decent head. I would definitely drink again. captspastic (20) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 2, 2004 My second stand by favorite. Smoot, mellow flavor. A bit less pronounced than Bass, but better after taste.

This beer says hello with a good hearty malt aroma that has citrus scents lingering in the background. This wet copper colored solution sits under a thick head that has the color of a slightly oxidized apple. This heavy and thick beer has the delicacy to remain smooth as it flows through the mouth. The mild bitter taste mixes with a mildly sweet taste to create a nice flavor that resonates over the tongue nicely and then fades leaving a nice aftertaste lingering.

This one is way too low. Pours copper with medium off-white head. Aroma of bready malt, fruit, some hops and caramel. Tastes malty, nutty, with hopcit and fruit in the finish. Smooth, dense, complex palate. A top notch beer. BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 4, 2005
Medium copper color and a pleasing creamy white head with a trace of orange from the copper. Aroma is unique for a pale ale, being distinctly bready and creamy (most pales have a pleasing aroma element at least a bit like the distinctive flavor of the genre). The flavor of this beer is stunningly Old World. I am once again surprised that the highly-advertised, seemingly mainstream Boston Brewing has proven to be at the same time the classic microbrewery. Floral hops are present in Whitbread, but, in a classic European fashion, the malts are allowed to counterbalance this florality, leading to a zingy blend of flavors that is zesty and fruity along with the standard pale ale hoppiness. Alcohol is very well hidden with only the proper suggestion on the tongue after the finish. Superb! MagooinPA (101) - Rotonda Lakes, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2007
Draft at Heart of Oak in Buckingham, Pa. I realize this has been made in the states for a long time now but this is still an awesome brew. Nice pour, nice lace, and awesome smell right off the bat. Hoppy, malty, yeasty. The only beer in the style that is better (just one mans opinion) is Young’s SLA. Perfect English pale ale in the same vain that London Pride is fabulous. id order it anywhere.
