Lovely mild beer with fruity tones, faint cherry, banana like. Smooth finish. Clean finish. Very pleasant beer.

A nice smooth pub ale, in the same vein (to my palate) as Boddington's. I'm getting some fruity esters and biscuity malts.

There is a mild hop bite on the finish, as well. (Funny side note: big IPAs may have ruined bitterness in anything below like… 80 IBUs.)

Like most British ales, the traditional cask version is bland and tasteless. But it's alright for a football match.

A dazzling look, very clear dark orange or light amber with small white head, high carbonation. Weak smell of caramel and lager-like yeast. Taste is slightly sweet, slightly bitter. Absolutely no hop aroma. No complex maltiness. A weak specimen of bland English ale, only good as a summer refreshment.

Amber colored beer with a fruity, flavorful bitterness and a smooth hop finish. I found this a pleasant beer to drink

Unappetizing sweet malt taste - thin mouthfeel - disappointing.

500ml bottle from Tesco. Excellent for the price (1.25 £), overall a good beer.
