Bottle from B&M, Stockton. Pours ruby with nothing in the way of a head. This seems a little flat to me. There’s some reasonable flavour going on. A little coffee, fruitiness and a bitter finish. Not too bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brown 500ml bottle, best before 7th July 2011, drank and reviewed 16th Jan 2011. Poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard. The beers name is a play on a famous comment made during the 1966 World Cup final.
Good clear looking beer, reddy/dark amber body with a tight white cap of bubbles on top.
The smell was fruity as well as both hoppy and malty, so a mixed bag of aromas.
The flavours in the smell carry on into the taste, this is a well balanced bitter and really tasty.
Wentworth brew loads of beers for this company, cheap, tasty and great value, good on um!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
99p world cup beer that’s just turned up in my local B+M. Chestnut with a half-moon slick of beige. Earthy, redcurrant aroma. Feels like one of Tunnel’s bottled creations; damp and earthy with red berry fruit and apple peel leading to a biscuit-hinting finish. Low carbonation and condition, apple and berry skin dominates, hint of nut. Crap pun, OK beer.
