look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I, like many of the other reviewers, purchased this beer out of sheer novelty. The fact that it made me laugh out loud the moment I caught sight of it I knew that it at least deserved a purchase for that. I too had very low expectations for this beer.

The Ale poored a slightly cloudy light amber to copper color, with a nice thick, creamy head. The nose gave off proment malt, with a bread and a slight toasted nut smell. Very subtle hints of fruit.

The taste was very good. Malt and hops came across very balanced, with hints of apple and bread. Very thin mouth feel, with very smooth finish.

All-in-all, a great pint of beer and much better than I believed due to the packaging. Tried twice, must better when chilled than slightly warm.

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.
