It's got a nice head, that's got to count for something. The beer itself is a slightly copper colored ginger ale looking liquid. The head is a couple fingers of different sized white bubbles. Thick and fluffy, it's got powerhouse retention and killer lace.

I tried and tried and tried to pick up some sort of scent, but there isn't much there. I think I detected something cracker-like, but I can't be positive.

It tastes like what I imagine dirty water would taste like. It's possibly got some imitation Noble hop variety and maybe even some ginger, but it really does taste like what I think dirty water tastes like.

Has kind of a faux savory feel. Either that or it's just beer gone bad, can't really tell. It gives me a bit of a pucker in the finish which I why I thought ginger might be in it.

Pretty bad beer. Not easy to get down. Better off avoiding this one.

My first post and apologize in advance about the format. I was disappointed with this English style ale though maybe my expectations were compromised. I love Theakstons, Tetleys, etc. and while I love the Dundee label, this beer disappointed from an expectations standpoint.

On the other hand, for a relatively inexpensive, surprising experience and for those interested in a light, lemony taste with easy drinkability, good after taste, it's not half bad.

A: pours a clear golden yellow color with a white head and ample amounts of lacing

S: light smell, wheat, grains, malts

T: light flavor as well, bread, grains, wheat, yeast, malts, and a bit of hops, could use a bit more oomp on the flavor side

M: medium carbonation, it is smooth and refreshing, its alrigt

O: was not bad, I would say it is alright, not impressive but I could drink one after another of this stuff, I'd say it is worth a try.

Appearance: yellow/brown more yellow on the spectrum.
Aroma of light malt.
Taste: not much here. light malt, slight hint of some hops.
Palate: very light mouthfeel.
Overall: depends on what you are looking for. Easy drinking beer better than your classic lager but not as good as many beers out there.

Poured cold from the bottle.

This beer poured a slightly hazy gold/amber colour with a ead that disappeared right away. There's really not much to the smell at all; a little bit of a wheat/yeast maybe. A very pronounced wheat taste that is not the most pleasing. Pretty much a craft-beer version of Bud Light...

Would I buy it again? Absolutely not.

i thought this was a much better beer than the people here are giving credit for. it pours clear and boring, a little copper in color, but too flat in luster for that, and with only a quarter inch of white fading head. the smell was also a little pedestrian, with english caramel and pale malts being the most visible, and some hop i cant immediatey identify, but its bitter and ancient, some goldings or something. the flavor is the same, but the finish makes this beer, its dry and clean as a palace floor, with some low key hops crackling over the palate. love the way this feels, bubbly carbonation above the dry finish, and a plenty drinkable light medium body. some toasty notes to wash it down, this was a good offering from dundee, not spectacular, but a step in the right direction for sure. the star of the most recent mixed box.

pint glass.

a -pours a hazy, pale amber color with lots of streaming bubbles visible. gave me a thin cap of sudsy, off white head that quickly calmed to a film. thin leggy lacing.

s - toffee, dark fruits, faint buttered bread.

t - toffee malt with a nondescript fruitiness and faint earthiness. finishes dry and malty.

m - medium in body with more than enough carbonation. an extremely coarse co2 profile scrubs away most of the flavor before i have time to really take note of it.

o - meh. not too bad for a cheapie, but you get what you pay for. hits most of the style points at least.
