    This ale is simply fantastic. I used to enjoy it at my favorite bar when it was readily available. However, the market in this town trends to the domestic light lagers. However, I do prefer darker beers. So this one is fantastic. The flavor is strong at first (if you're not used to ales). It's smooth. It has a great head, foamy and thick. I'll enjoy this as my own beer of the night. Mixing it with others isn't great. The flavor tends to be distinct, yet great. The colder the better, in my opinion. the aroma is great too.

    This beer taste great on tap! Bottles are phenominal. Not too bitter, I grab a 12 every now and again, when ice cold it is wonderful.

    My reach-for-it anytime beer! I've never had a bad experience with this beer. From the tap it's excellent and in the bottle, it's still really, really good.

    Very fizzy, almost to the point of it being like a pop (soda or soft drink) instead of a beer. It's bland and innocuous, an adequate session beer, something to have if someone else is buying but probably not one that I would buy for myself.
