This was once one of my favorite beers but I cannot find it now. Quite a nice English pale ale but it fails by comparison to American craft pale ales.

As a beer that is a tribute, it does justice. John Courage-the dead heir to the European brewing fortune died in a firey car crash. Actually it was in a formula 1 car of the team he bought. For beer royalty who literally burnt to death where they sat, this beer is for them and is inarguably perfect based on what it is. Drink responsibly.
