For many years this was my beer of choice, nice n dry n hoppy, and economical - but that's before the Craft Beer Movement got going and now that I have tasted so, so many superb Pale Ales I would just not be able to go back to this one, sadly. (Feel like I'm letting down an old friend). The thing I mostly don't like about Chesterfield is it has a peculiar, not-too-great aftertaste.

Picked up a 6 pack of bottles of this today...
Poured a nice big head that quickly dissipated leaving a thin little foam layer on top. The aroma gave off some very hoppy characteristics. The color is a very clear light gold with a lot of bubbles rising up.
Now the taste surprised me. I was honestly expecting nothing good from this due to the reviews on here. But man oh man, I think i found a new go to. It's a pretty strong brew at 5.4%, cheap in my area 9.99 for a 12 pack i think. The Traditional Lager is praised for its smooth sweetness, but Lord Chesterfield Ale packs a completely different and bitter bunch.
I'm giving it a 3.25 because it's much better than I expected, not the best thing in the world. But all things considered you get more than you pay for with this ale. May be my go-to budget brew for a few weeks.

For some reason I enjoy a cold, fresh Chestie.

Although classified as an APA to me it has qualities of a pilsner. I've drank this beer as my "everyday ale" for many years and would have to say most everyone else would agree with the Bros reviews.

I suggest staying away from the bottles and sticking with a very cold can.
