johndoughty (4133) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle.Orange and flat. Low carbonation and left no lacing. Not a lot of body considering its strength. Pretty average and a bit disappointing.

gegwilson (1615) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2014
Gravity dispense from the Little Ale House, Bromsgrove. Amber with a fading bit of cream froth. Some caramel with slightly nondescript hop bitterness. Nice enough, but unremarkable.

tommann (2953) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours gold with a large head. Aroma is sweet, with straw and grass. Taste is pretty much the same, straw and grass with a touch of sulphur on the finish. A little rubber.

allmyvinyl (4813) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2013
Cask at The Old Black Bull, Preston. Pours amber with a thin white head. Aromas are muted malts and spicy hops, cake mix and caramel towards the end. Taste is on the sweeter side. Medium body, creamy texture. Slipped down fine, but not particularly memorable.

downender (6576) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2013
Cask-conditioned at the Herefordshire & Worcestershire beeriodical, the Seven Stars, Bristol March 2013. Golden with a slick of a white head. Citrus fruit, slightly sweet and jammy, some solid biscuity malts and a dryish finish. Good.

DruncanVeasey (7332) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2013
Bottle from Connolly’s, Olton. Bright gold with a skim of white foam. Muted aroma with suggestions of pine, jazz cigarette, butter, overripe satsuma. Soft-conditioned, slightly dank with Sorachi-like orange and fennel flavours; biscuit, shampoo, pine, lightly buttered malt sweetness. Bitter to finish without being hoppy. Unexciting and a bit dead but drinkable.

jmgreenuk (5234) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 28, 2012
Bottle from Connollys Wines, Solihull. Poured a clear amber colour with a foamy white head. The aroma is malty with spicy notes. The flavour is peppery spicy hoppy with some dryness on the palate. This was not at all what I was expecting at all. This is my first beer from Bewdley and it won't be the last.

BlackHaddock (4370) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2012
500ml Bottle BBE Sep 2013: poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard @ home on 7th Dec 2012. Golden hue to this light brew: good, full head of snow white foam on top, looks good, clear and bright. This stronger version of ’Worcestershire Way’ is fairly sweet and although it uses the same hops it seems to have a bigger maltier aroma and taste than its weaker brother. Biscuity, baked malts in the nose and mouth with the hops being pushed towards the end of each gulp to give a satisfying semi-bitter finish. The body depth is fine with the alcohol being hidden nicely: a very pleasant brew, I like the sweeter brews.

imdownthepub (10870) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from Hop & Stagger Bottleshop, Bridgnorth, Shrops. Gold with white head. Another Bewdley bottled beer that tastes just a little flat, it is also quite sweetish in character with an orange fruitiness. Ends just a little syrupy perhaps but it’s ok.
