De carbonatación media. Cerveza de aroma a caramelo, pan y cereales. En boca es una cerveza de cuerpo medio, amarga y seca. En su final se siente el caramelo y la malta.

Drank 8 cans of this stuff last night at home (500 ml cans, 5% ABV).
Wow this beer is garbage. Tastes horribe and is way too bitter.
Can't score it for look because I drank it out of cans, but the look is irrelevant imo if the beer tastes bad.
Not entirely sure what "feel" means when it comes to beer (it felt wet in my mouth if that's what that means, probably not), but I'll never be buying this stuff again.
Cost me the best part of £10 for 8 cans. I feel completely ripped off.
I bought it on a whim but won't be buying it again.
How does anyone like this stuff? It has nothing going for it as far as I can tell.

Had on cask at The Glasgow airport as a last beer before departure. Pretty decent on cask. Fresh, balanced, slightly grainy, and moreish. Satisfying.

This is beer at its its best, maybe years ago was better but still great today. Hard to find in the USA where I live but never mind, Ontario and LCBO's are only 200 miles away and they sell it in 500ml cans about 17ozs. For many beer lovers not enough hops or even any , well fine but for me this is good beer. I did grow up in the UK so may sound one sided but also lived in Germany 2 years ,Australia 10 years, two so called beer drinking nations.

Malty...very malty. You decide if that's good or bad. For me it's alright, I like the malts.

Carbonation from the can is almost like a proper draught.

On tap at The Man of Kent in Hoosick, NY.

This one pours a clear light amber, with a small wispy head, and not much lacing.

This smells mainly bready, with caramel and tea like hops.

This is fairly boring. It's muddled and a bit watery, with neither the malt nor hop character really impressing much.

This is watery and thin, with nevertheless a high level of drinkability.

This is drinkable enough but very boring.

Copper pour with lasting finger of off white foam (4.0). Aroma is bready malt and a touch of caramel (4.0). Flavor is similar with a slight sweetness (3.75). Smooth and balanced throughout (3.75), finishes ever so slightly dry. (3.75)
