It took me a while to come up with a redeaming quality about this ale, and here it is: At least it didn't poison me. Wait, I have another one: it didn't cause me to wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat. So, there you go. Two wonderful attributes about this beer. I have nothing else positive to say because it was absolutely tasteless, with no finish. When I say tasteless, I mean it had NO taste. Budweiser leaves more of a taste on your tongue. A nasty taste, but a taste nonetheless. Once I got down to the bottom 1/3 of the glass, it started to develop some character. Unfortunately, that character was Hannibal Lechter, because I started to think finishing this beer would kill me, and it left me looking like a cat that just ate something nasty. An English beer that sucks. Never thought I'd see the day. Maybe it was the clear glass bottle. Maybe it just sucked on its own. Either way, I suggest you steer clear. Cool label, which should've told me right there that this beer would blow like a $2 whore. Oh, one more thing.....this cost me almost $4 (for a half-liter bottle), which makes me even less charitable.
