Another gimme from a co-worker, this was a pretty decent English ale. Not the absolute best, but certainly not the worst. It's a handsome color, has a nice malty aroma, and as with most English ales, has a hops bite but not one that just grabs you by the throat. A decent, well-balanced ale. Pretty cool bottle, too, though I have my sneaking suspicions it's packaged that way just to appeal to us gullible Americans.
