This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance had a semi-dark red to orange color with a slight clearness rising in the beer. Streams of carbonation are seen rising into the light white one finger head. There was a decent lacing after the death of the head. The smell had a dry caramel graininess running underneath. The taste starts with this dried caramel graininiess and lends a light sweetness to allow a mild bitterness for balance. On the palate, this one sat fairly light to show a decent sessionability about it. There was a mild dry bitter caramel finish. Overall, this one was a decent bitter I think I could do again. Pass the fish n’ chips....? Sounds good.

Look: Clear golden (touch of brown) hue with crazy amounts of foam that tends to linger. (Maybe because it was poured from a can?)
Smell: Bready, malt, some slight floral notes.
Taste: Straight up ale with light hoppiness that does not overpower the malt characters.
Feel: Feel like I am in a traditional English pub. It brings back memories.
Overall: Excellent brew that could be a mainstay in any beer fridge.

Clear amber. No head to speak of. Has a hard feel to it. Definitely taste whiskey and biscuit. A little on the smoky side. Not bad.

This is simply the hoppiest - and the best imho - English ale, period. The most overwhelming and drinkable, smooth ale with a hoppy nose and hoppy taste, glorified by a golden amber hue. And this is not all! This is an ale that you could drink again and again and again and you would never get bored of it. It is exciting, it is lively but at the same time it is still keeping the old traditions. It is a Classic with a capital C. A must for all.

This is a great English ale. English hops just make enough of a showing to bring the malt down to earth. There are whispers of caramel and bread, balanced by the hops. I could drink this nearly anytime and be happy about it, but I generally like maltier ales. With most British imports, you need to check the dates. I find in the Midwest, they tend to sell more slowly and probably suffer more temperature extremes, impacting quality. If you like the style and buy from a busy store, you should enjoy this beer!
