Bottle from ASDA. Amber with a slight, off-white head and moderate carbonation. Light, bready aroma. Flavour of savoury malts, a hint of grassy hop and bitter finish. Not much going on, but not unpleasant.

500 ml bottle. From the UK.
Reddish copper colour with thin white head.
Sweet toffee, fruity and malty aroma. Flavour is not exactly what you expect. Vegetables, a bit bitter and highly metallic. Gets sweeter when warms up. Basic bottled ale.

50cl bottle from Somerfields. Reddish amber with cream head, quite highly carbonated for a Badger ale. Hoppy aroma, watery hoppy flavour with some malt. A basic low-strength bitter, but still drinkable.

UPDATED: SEP 10, 2008 Not really that great the flavour in all truth lets it down a little, was hoping for more, going off badger beers a little bit right now, this is tough going yes

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle 500ml from Somerfield. Pours a clear orangey brown colour with a thin off-white film for a head. A hoppy aroma but nothing special. This follows through to the taste, hoppy but little to distinguish it from the most average of ales. Quite thin and watery. Bitter aftertaste but not exactly long lasting. I guess you get what you pay for, this bottle cost £1.23 and I still think it is overpriced!

99p Bottle from Somerfield. After two rancid Badger beers in a row I had worries about this. Pours a brown colour with a lasting head. Aroma of a sticky, malty bitter, slight sourness. Flavour is quite sweet with a harsh bitterness and lots of biscuity malt. Hard to say exactly but it reminds me of a lot of cheaper, mass produced bitters, poor ingredients?

Keg, as Extra smooth, in the Masons Arms, Marylebone, London. Muddy brown, aerated, big soapy head. Ok, a quick half for a rating, its just an homogenous mess really, full of Nitrogen, burping for England afterwards. It’s done now.

Badger original ale, bought from Somerfield for 89p, oppposed to all other bottles at £1.62. Very hoppy taste, slightly malty and hints of caramel. A slightly intrusive carbonation however. Appearance is pleasant, with minimal head. A very average, forgettable ale, however is still very pleasant. If you take the time to appreciate the ale; I think it is far more rewarding, rather than knocking it back like cold lager.
