I bought a can of this stuff at LCBO, because it looked good, and I thought it was on sale for $2.00 for a tallcan. It was actually $2.80, not $2.00, so I expected something delicious.

Boy was I in for a surprise.

I cracked open the can, and the distinct smell of urine wafted very quickly up to my nostrils. I drank a small sip, it tasted like it smelled, and I kicked myself in the ass for wasting my money on this "premium ale".

Now I understand why the British refer to "getting drunk", as "getting pissed"!

The urine the beer ratio in the can is UNACCEPTIBREW!!

Shameful 1/5.

The British should stick to fish and chips, and leave the brewing for us North Americans!

This really isnt a good beer i m afraid:

A - best thing about it a kind of honey amberish look but soapy head

S - Citrussy acidic and off-honey

T - TAstes like honey gone off or maybe earwax

M - This is a very flat beer almost stale - i know English ales are meant to be flat but this could really be used to do the dishes in its lukewarm state

D - Considering the above LOW

Dark apple juice color; like apple juice with a disintegrated cinnamon stick. No head to speak of.

Alright! Nose is totally of melted plastic. Just what I like in a beer...not. A little caramel booziness, a waxed floor smell, and stale malts.

Tastes like plastic, earwax, and old bread crusts. Nope.

Feel is pretty watery and not much carbonation.

World class? WTF? Are your tongues broken?

Wow. I love me some London porter.... Their ESB is nice too... This was awful.

Appearance is average. It's a red pour with a rocky small head that diminishes.

Smell is so full of butter, butterscotch, diacetyl... ick... Ok there's some hops in there that make is somewhat palatable but this was not a beer I enjoyed.

Taste is loaded with butter.

Mouthfeel is thick with a tongue sweater that I didn't want. ... Not a good choice for anyone who doesn't like buttery overly sweet pale ales. The hops need more spotlight.

A - Pours an orange-yellow with a very thin layer of foam. The foam lingers before disappearing.

S - Can definitely smell the malts. Also a slightly sweet odor is detectable

T - Disappointing. Not much substance, thin and malty.

M - Very thin and watery. A malts have a bite.

O - Overall a huge disappointment.

Pours a amber color with a thin white head. Blanket forms on top of the glass.

Aroma is a let down, hints of caramel, but mainly corny smelling.

flavor is just as bad. Tastes like a train wreck of adjunct grains and diacetyl. Mildly bitter finish.

Mouthfeel is thin and overcarbonated. Drinkability is decent at best. I find myself almost choking this down.
