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.
