Very good for a large producer of beer. I typically look for the local craft beers but this is a good solid brown ale. I would like to see it offered in cans.

For a mass produced brown ale, it rates better than most commercial offerings. Readily available when nothing else is, priced right, and always a decent choice.

One of my first beers that was not a light beer. Enjoyable and easy to drink, will always enjoy them just not so complex as the stuff I have now but a fine beer overall.
