3.43/5 rDev +2.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Deep amber hue, not quite brown. The color alone makes me thirsty. Not much head retention, but moderate lacing.
Smell: Mostly the malt is noticeable.
Taste: Malty and mildly sweet, with little hops presence. A little buttery and metallic on the finish, but nothing too harsh.
Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation and body, not that noteworthy, but not unpleasant either.
Drinkability: Low ABV and wide availability make this a session candidate when options are limited.
Notes: I was enamored with this beer for a short while when I was first starting to become interested in beer. I know now that it's not the end all and be all for English Brown Ales. However, as a cult classic of sorts, it could be a lot worse.

On tap in a bar in Quartier Dix30.
Appearance is the best looking part with an obvious brown body and good enough head that has a bit of cascading to it. Flavor is decent, mild nuttiness, easy drinking but pretty ordinary obviously. Still, an ok selection.
Serving type: on-tap

I love the tone. I really like the fact that it has the initial Heineken smell, I also love Heineken. However this beer does not have the heavy aftertaste. I do wish it were a little more potent ;)
Overall I would stock it. There are MANY beers around that Id pass up for this one. I am not into the IPA format. I prefer stout. But I love how smooth this beer drinks.
