Apparently “12 pints are sold every minute”!

Burnt orange colour, white a foamy white head.

The aroma is very sweet and foremost hoppy. The taste is malty yet sweet with slightly grassy notes. Smooth and clean on the palate.

Quite refreshing with a very bitter finish.

Overall its OK. Somewhat a generic mass-market bitter.
