4.22/5  rDev +26.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

I was not expecting as much from this beer with the cheesiness albeit somewhat entertaining label and play from Monty Python but this was a very solid beer.

Lacing was good, head was good although faded fast. Color was decent also.

Smell was the weak point, malty for sure, little hop in the smell.

Taste was way over expectations. Very clean crisp flavor, hops were decently balanced with malt and everything gelled well.

Was medium bodied and went well with the taste and style.

Very drinkable, good beer and one I avoided for a while, now with regret.

3.43/5  rDev +3%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Undated bottle at 35 degrees into imperial pint glass
Aroma of malt
Head small (2 cm), fizzy, off white, quickly diminishing to 2 mm ring and scattered bubbles
Lacing none
Body light amber, clear
Flavor of light malt, slight hoppiness, and just a hint of diacetyl. No alcohol taste. Flavor very short-lived.
Palate light to medium, watery, lively carbonation.

Very nice ale, have consumed many and would recommend it. The fizzy head and lack of lacing detract from the appearance. Still not a tasty as a Yorkshire dark ale.
