RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - JUN 16, 2006
Aroma isn’t aplenty in this beer. Some malts, with some sulphur here too. Settles to a nice amber colour with white head. Taste is simple and bitter, malty. Very dry finish, long and bitter. Easy drinker. Session.

Nitro tap at Claddaugh. Gold pour with decent white head. This one slides down very nicely. Light body, but I wouldn’t call it watery. Not much in the way of aroma. A bit of bitter, but a lot more creamy honey sweetness. Buddy of mine who really doesn’t like beer liked this. In that sense it is inoffensive. I won’t be hunting this down, but this might just make my next cheap session.

I prefeered the one in Cask, this was a little squashy and nasty in flavor so far, not really to drink the whole bottle.

Can. Nice white good fully lasting head. Microhead due to plasticball. Week to no aroma, average falcorfinish, OK bitter. Soft carbonated, but a bit watery.

Iv had this on draught down in blackpool before and remember it being really really rubbish, this wasnt quite as bad thankfully. Aroma is seriously minimal due to head, not offensive. Taste is lightly bitter with a showing of slight caramel malt. Forgetable, but not terrible.

Keg @ Hogshead, Exeter. Drank whilst on a crawl round Exeter unfortunately all of my companions seemed to have an antipathy to any pubs serving real ale and both cask were gone in the Hogshead. As a chain they used to be OK for real ale but now they dont seem to give a sh*t. As for the beer it wasn’t great but better than the Tetleys and John Smiths I drank earlier in the evening. This possessed a moderate traditional English hop aroma - earthy and rustic with faint floral but non perfumey undertones. Unfortunately that was about all it did have the thin dead body spoiling any chance of enjoyment, just about drinkable.

Magically tastes like honey beer, though there be no honey in it. Best drunk in manchester. A bit horrid in a can. Bitter for lager drinkers.

Pretty much the same as Tennents Vevet. This was no.2 in a canned "draught" beer tasting. A touch lighter in colour than Velvet, but just as bland and of an equally poor quality. Poured this away too!
