The crisp white head is of a smallish nature and is quickly dispersed to a mottled skim with a bright white ring at the edge. Spotty adhesion. Crystal clear and of an orange-brown chestnut color, there is little activity in the way of carbonation rising from the depths, yet the white mottled skim remains till the last sip.
Plain old two-row barley is evident in the light cereal aroma. The definition of a pale ale (the label claims it is the world's first), the flavor is straight ahead lightly roasted malts with a fresh bread undertone. Well carbonated in the mouth, this is an easy glass of beer to drink, especially while washing down some fish and chips.
A pale ale of some stature, if the endorsements on the label are any indication: Napolean, Manet and Buffalo Bill are listed as some who fancied the brew.

This was a great beer way back when, after being bought by anheuser busch, and replacing hops with two row malts, this is nothing more than a Budweiser with extra malts and a horrible natti ice aftertaste. Shame on this company for buying out and ruining a beer that has been around since artist like Monet and dictators like Napoleon Bonaparte. Just another casualty in the war of the beers. Seems any good beers will be bought out and watered down if they sell out. I will not even do the beer review in terms of mouthfeel, ect , cause to be honest its not worth it, as it fails all tests..Now I only speak of the usa version by anheuser busch, I remember the uk version being delicious!

Bass pours a dark golden color with a very small but lacing head. There is a mellow caramel aroma, with some corn like notes. The taste has some caramel malt flavors, but a lot of adjunct flavors afterwards. Slightly odd flavors, bad aftertaste. Overall its not horrible, and has some nice flavors, but a really bad aftertaste.
