This beer lacks any defining characteristics. If it was pulled one way, towards bitterness, or maltiness, then it would have succeeded better than it does.
Looks like any old pale ale.
Not much aroma at all.
Sweetness VERY slightly overbalances the bitterness.
Carbonation is low; appropriate to style is the best that I can say about it.
The most average beer that I've ever rated on this site!

It had a great color of a cask ale, maroon, transparent, but not watery, decent head. I was looking forward to it, but when i drank it....it had almost no flavor whatsoever. It was watery, had no real personality, reminded me of dishwater almost. Should've gotten a Stella instead.

Can't get my head round this bitter. I have now tried it in three different pubs and it hasn't got any better than when I first had it.

This last pint (well I had 2 actually) was pulled at a remote Shropshire pub on my way to The Seven Valley Railway CAMRA beerfestival.

True amber in colour, with a good white head, the beer looks fine.

The aroma to me has always been caramel and hops, these two pints were no change.

The beer just doesn't taste right to me, too sweet, especially in the aftertaste. it has an almost sickly smooth feel to it, very strange for an English bitter.
