theres no excuse really for this beer, i might be being harsh on it because i just had other ales(true ales,not this joke) but its just not good. when a beer is marketed the way this one is in england, on the same shelf as fullers london pride and fullers disover blone beer as well as honey dew all vasltey superior beers, it should be at least in the same league on the low end or something, there no different bettween this and heiniken , stella or other wise, its not and adjunct lager, however it taste very mass pro duced, mostly there just nothign special.

look, gold amber hugh

smell, hops smell not very aromatic

taste, macro lagery adjuncty, stellaish, mildly bitter mildly sweet. dry bitter hops finish. not bad but nothing stands out by any means.

mouth feel, leaves it dry, with bitter.

over all, would by again, didnt enjoy it, i only finished all 500ml because i wanted the alcohol and mostly cuz i paid for it.more than3 quid man.

buy somthing else.

From Costco. In Ikea's pint glass. After dinner. Fresh-cut grass notes with some lemony touch in a very watery brew that quickly falls flat and loses all interest.

500 mL brown bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: clear amber beer with thin off-white head of less than 1 finger.

S: malty, biscuity, mildly floral

T: typical pale ale with moderate bite and slightly bitter finish. Not outstanding but fairly representative of the style.

M: slightly above-average carbonation gives this one a refreshing bite.

O: not outstanding, not terrible, just decent. Would certainly try it again.

Currently 4.7% ABV
Poured into english pint.
Clear fdeep golden beer with 2-finger off-white head, average retention. Aroma of rhubarb, sweaty, vinegar, unpleasant in common. Taste is not balanced, harsh enough at first, rounded by amber malts, banal hop bitterness in the finish. Dull and inessential.

(From notes)

A - Completely see-through light brownish color with a bit of gold in the color. Nearly pure white head. Good, but not excellent lacing

S - Fairly bland aromas, with some fruit (apples?) with not a whole lot going on. Really no hop aromas

T - Again, pretty basic. Malt and fruitiness are pretty well balanced, but I was expecting a bit more hop given the style.

M - Fairly thin, of course no carbonation given cask serving, and a bit more watery than I would like for the style

D - Pretty decent as it wasn't too hard to take down the sample. But it left me wanting for taste.

Overall, this was a decent and basic attempt. Far tastier brews in the style range, but this wasn't terrible.

Golden amber. Thick dense head.
Light aroma of English hops. Otherwise not much of anything.
Mild flavour of malt and hops. A bit metallic. Some caramel.
Light body. Quite refreshing.
Average EPA that nevertheless reflects the style quite well.

A hoppy english bitter. Nice, light flavours, which blend nicely, hoppy and clean, very nice session beer. Nothing out of the ordinary or complex for that matter, but a solid little bitter, without a doubt this would be better cask conditioned, but it tasted fine, if a little restrained, from the bottle.

Bottle straight from the source after a friend's visit.

Pours a transparent light copper with a hint of orange haze. Bone white head that rises to about two fingers on a pretty hard pours. Falls down without leaving too much lacing behind. Nose presents some really light malt sweetness and a touch of floral hops. Taste is light with a nice bitterness. Not too much hop flavor, but you can definitely tell that they're there. Some graininess to it as well. Mouthfeel is quite light. Slightly bitter finish. Mild carbonation. Fairly drinkable, but nothing too appetizing about it. While it does have a bit more flavor than the average mild, it's not terribly appetizing.

A - A attractive dark apricot colour but topped by a fairly pathetic flimsy head and rings of lace.

S - Honey, lemon, grass, biscuit, grain.

T - Fairly typical of the mildness of the style, an assortment of faint flavours, orange flavoured strepsils, honey, apricot, lemon, corn and some floral hops.

M - Medium to high carbonation, dry and lightly bitter in the finish, thin bodied.

O - Not bad, but won't be rushing out to get myself another one.

500ml brown bottle, BB 12/12/08, served cool in a straight imperial pint glass.

A: a semi-lively, dark tawny body carries huge and tiny bubbles, topped with a fluffy off-white foamy head.
S: qutie rich in raw-nutty or gristy pale malts, hand in hand with a lively nose of orangey fruits, dried grassiness, and yeasts; a swirl brings out the distinctive smell of malts, almost like blended with some dried herbs and dried tree leaves...
T: the foretaste is mildly malty but not sweet, added with a wee bit metallic palate, then turning rather tea-leafy, tannic in terms of hop bitterness, on a par with a remnant hint of caramelised sugar in the end.
M&D: quite fizzy, this bottle is somewhat more heavily carbonated than my palate prefers, but the body remains sound and the overall palate very clean to make it a decent, even more-ish, Bitter. Although this rather quiet ale does not give a "wow factor, it is still a well-crafted brew.
