3.2/5  rDev -21.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

i am bummed. this comes from after a brief stint in London this fall and drinking this stuff like water. its pretty clear its just not the same over here.

ah well it started out promising. nice deep amber color slight off white head on top. just how i remembered it.

but the aroma is just not there. there usualy is a nice english hop aroma that i would describe as an english golf course. :-) really don't know the correct word here but that's how it sounds

it tastes good but not great, and that's the problem here. normally i could drink it all day long as it has the perfect blend of all the appropriate flavors. this time around everything was muted.

well i will still rock this out hardcore when back in the pubs but over here i will probably look elsewhere

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

This is a tasty brew that goes down easy. Has beautiful sunburst color that reminds me of a Gibson Les Paul. Hoppy aroma balanced by a soft caramel smell, soo good. Taste is of malty goodness along with grassy hops. Full of flavors for it's medium body. Low in carbonation but manages to keep a very thin head on top. Overall this brew rocks! I can see myself coming home from a long day of work and having one or two of these pint bottles in a nonic. Definately will be buying this again. Excellent!
