12 FL. OZ. bottle
Served in a nonic pint glass

A - It is a little lighter than tea in color. It has some burnt orange and amber highlights. It is capped with two inches of tan head.

S - It smells skunked as soon as I pop the cap. Once I get passed the skunk piss smell I get some caramel and cocoa.

T - It of course has that skunked ass taste. I do get some caramel in between the skunk taste.

M - Moderate to thin.

O - Clear bottles equal skunk taste and smell. I think this is a terrible beer. It is probably not light struck on draft, but I seldom choose this beer to consume. I bought a six pack to remind myself of why I never drink it. This is probably my least favorite English beer.
