Its rocky head and golden light brown color are only the tip of the iceberg. It has a floral, citrus aroma with a sweetness that makes you glad you chose it. Allegedly designed to clear the throats of Yorkshire coalminers, it starts with a big malty taste (caramel) and finishes bitter and dry tying in the floral spiciness that was initially smelled. This is a very quaffable beer and one that would make an excellent session beer.

Pours a somewhat cloudy copper with a persistent and pillowy white head that leaves quite a bit of lace. Aroma is full of malt, with caramel and bread notes, and some floral and earthy hops. Flavor begins somewhat sweet with some caramel and citrus notes, then becomes quite bitter with an herbal finish. Quite hoppy compared to other British Pale Ales I've had... quite a bit of character to this one. I still would love to try this one on cask, as the bottled version is perhaps a bit overcarbonated.

This has to be perhaps my favourite flat warm English beer. I first tried it in a pub in London so perhaps not as good as could be if tried around its home town but such an easy drinking full bodied tasty ale.
A pale dark golden in colour this ale has been awarded time and time again with good reason. Forget a bottled version, get this one on tap in a full measure pint glass (Remember, "Mine's a Full Pint!"). This sort of beer is the thing I miss most about England. Floral aromas with the malt and hops coming through but not overpowering, full flavoured and so easy to drink, served at room temperature, say 12C(something or other F, who knows...) in a good pub without chrome fittings and too loud music,and, but I digress. If you are in England, try this beer.

The best bottled approximation of real english Cask-conditioned ale that I have ever tasted.
It has a lovely malty smell as well as the above-average hop content. The head forms proper deep shapes, unlike typical "foams".

Occasionally, even properly chilled bottles overflow on opening, so be ready. I had a few "sour" bottles once, but 98% of the time, this has been the best buy I can find in the bitter style.

I like to pour it into the glass, to lose some of the fizz - it then tastes more like cask beer. Also - do not drink this beer too chilled - I think about 11 C is correct.

Superb session ale indeed!!!! Make sure you let it warm up a bit if you store it in your fridge, the zesty hop bitterness in particular really starts to develop as it warms, extremely tasty brew, satisfying bitterness, excellent!!!!
