Slightly old bottle, so I got it on discount.
Pours a beautiful deep amber color with a nice 1cm white creamy-looking head. This beer is fun to look at.
Aroma: hops, grass, hay. Very subtle.
Taste: Nicely bitter! This beer conjures up for me a cozy English pub with a wood fire. It is excellent with artisan cheese (I had goat) and a sweet meat pie (venison). Well-balanced, if a bit on the plain side.
Palate: Smooth and classic.
Overall: This is a wonderful session beer. It's classic enough to not be complicated, but still be enjoyable. This is an example of English understatement in the best tradition. Not quite as polished as their ESB, but I'd gladly seek it out. I'm anxious to try the draught version as soon as I can.
