look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Pours a golden brown when up to the light and has a 1/2" head that sticks around. The smell is mostly of malts nothing else really decent. Taste is nothing with malts at the end, not impressed at all. Would rather drink something else but does have good amount of carbonation for the style.

As a beer that is a tribute, it does justice. John Courage-the dead heir to the European brewing fortune died in a firey car crash. Actually it was in a formula 1 car of the team he bought. For beer royalty who literally burnt to death where they sat, this beer is for them and is inarguably perfect based on what it is. Drink responsibly.
