This to me is an excellent example of an average session beer. There is nothing here to excite the more experienced beer drinker. Smell and taste are present but not overpowering. This is undoubtably a mainstream UK macro but it stands head and shoulders over US macros. I also think this is a good gateway beer. It's recognized and familiar, and the taste shouldn't offend anyone. I like to have this around at parties to encourage macro drinkers to move up and if I have left overs it doesn't need to go down the drain.
Bottom line, it's a pleasant but unremarkable beer. I like to have it when I don't want a complicated beer.
