This is a great, very drikable beer and is close to Bass except a bit fresher. Excellent hop flavor but not overwelming. Carbonation is appropriate for an English bitter but not excessive. The color is perfect thanks to English cara-pils. The only problem with this beer is an unwanted chill haze...you might want to increase the clarifiers.
