I was sad to see this get such low marks. I have enjoyed this beer for quite sometime and it, though I won't buy it all that much, will never leave my rotation. It has a very understated but refined taste that I find very comforting.

I cant believe this beer is rated so low!
It is a clean good example of an english pale ale.
It isnt super hoppy or malty
However...it is perfect with bar food, pizza, mexican...
Plus ... it was taken on many expeditions to the south pole ...nothing like bbq penquin and a bass ale - yummo!

This is my standard for Pale Ales. Goes down smooth and easy. I am more of an Ale person so am guessing ale lovers enjoy this one more then others based on the other ratings I have read.
