Fizzed and kegged. If itís kegged then I suppose the best option is to go for a keg lager. At least the flavours wont be disgusting, and the hops foul, and the fuller body confused by all that fizzing.

Had this one with SilkTork in The Old Blue Last, legend has it that this pub was the first place to serve porter. Today this yellow swill (or Guinness) is about the best they can do. The Barmaid doesnít even know what porter is. Enough about the pub, the beer was shit too, sweet pineapple aroma, flat old tasting malt, sweetness, honey and dust. Dull like British television.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2005 First impressions were of the odd watery, yet mouth-filling, feel. A deep malty richness, with decent complexity. The taste is pretty good on the whole, but otherwise not a lot to say, really, but canít complain either.

July 21, 2002 (Keg) A pretty average standard bitter. Drinkable, but not great.

On tap: I like the hand pulled bitters. I had this with proper English fish and chips. Didnít have a lot of bang for the buck as far as flavor was concerned, but Iíd just got off of an airplane after an uncomfortable night.

Copper coloured, dying head. Smooth and quite sweet for a bitter. Overall a watery and quite uninteresting brew.

Keg, at the cricket Lords, Marylebone, London.
Not the most pure of ratings but what the hell. Served in a plastic cup on sunny Sunday at Lords, Day 4, England V New Zealand, the back drop could only have been improved by Australia playing. Amber with large creamy beige head. Strong bitter aroma, with a hint of chemical residue. Not the most natural of aromas. Straight one dimensional bitter flavour.

Based on draught version: Just your average English bitter. Nothing too exciting.
