Apparently one of the most popular bitters in the uk.

Golden Amber, clear with minimal head that disappears quickly.

Nice subtle hint of brown sugar and cigar smoke. Not a lot here.

Flavour is dry up front, phenolic sweet and a touch cloying through the middle. Finishes tart and a touch sweet. Not offensive, not real real crash hot either.

Malt is thin, carb is non existent. Quite astringent.

Sweetish, thin and flat so easy to slam if you're into that. May explain it's popularity.

Bottled, 4.3% ABV. Clear amber color with a bit of beige head. Aroma has toasted malts and some earthy hops, not much going on here. Taste has toasted malts, bread crust, a bit of caramel/burnt sugar and a hint of hops on the finish. Not really sweet or bitter, quite watery. Light body with low carbonation. It doesn't have any off-tastes but it's really generic and boring overall.

Pours a finger of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is wood, dark grains and a little plum.
The taste is wood, mild fruit and lemon bitterness.
The texture is smooth with low carbonation.
Enjoyable.

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.

Reviewing the bottle, serving it chilled as recommended.

Looks fine, nothing special, aroma of barley malt...

I am certian that this is different from the cask version in pubs, which I quite like.

Not much flavour to taste, after 6 months of drinking Belgian beers. As a chilled amber ale, it's taste is certainly better than the mass-produced lagers, as there is some bitterness at least. However, overall flavour is quite simple, watery and uninspiring...
