"A classic of the English brewing tradition, smooth and strong with a distinctive hoppy falvour". That's what the can says. And I should mention that this beer comes in a can that pours a perfect pint. A nice touch. But back to the actual beer. It has a light amber colour to it and does have a nice hoppy flavour. Good aftertaste, typical of an English bitter. My knock on this beer is that it's too watery in that you don't taste much right away. I even tried a second one at a warmer temperature just to be sure. But no, still a little too watery. I'd say this beer is average for it's type. If you like English bitters you can do better, but you'll still probably like it.
