Draft @ Bobby Vans Manhattan. I enjoyed this beer, plenty of fruityness from the English yeast and a nice hop presence. I would have liked a bit more malt though.

Alengrin (4594) - BELGIUM - SEP 8, 2014
Vintage tasting at the Kulminator. Brownish bronze colour, dried fruits, spicy notes, very malty, smooth with woodiness in the finish; clearly oxidized as well, which is not surprising considering the age of the tasted sample.

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 15, 2013
Dégustée au Bockée à Boucherville. De couleur ambrée-dorée et claire. Nez de grains de malt pâle, léger de caramel doux avec des notes de houblon herbeux (foin), de fruits (agrumes) . Rondeur moyenne-mince en bouche avec un léger-moyen pétillement ainsi qu’une une texture légèrement crémeuse. Notes fruitées (agrumes) dès l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un moyen goût de grain de malt légèrement sucrés (caramel très doux) avec des notes de rôti et de pain puis en finale l’on retrouve des notes amères de houblon herbeux aux traces florales avec de faibles traces métalliques. Post-goût court et sec, légèrement amer de houblon floral aux notes herbeuses avec quelques traces métalliques.

Multiple tastings. I remember drinking these while on exchange in London. Nothing special but wanted to get this one added to my list.

Metalchopz (3095) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 10, 2012
Originally rated February 2005. Poured an amber colour with a nice creamy head with very good retention. Lacing was also thick and spider web oriented. Aroma was of biscuits and slightly sweet malt. The taste was also sweet, like mild caramel, and had a little bitter kick at the end. Nice and smooth mouthfeel. This is the closest thing to Boddington, when both are compared from a draught can. Great session brew.

reebtogi (5735) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 1, 2011
500ml bottle poured a golden color with a frothy white head that settled to some very thin lacing. Aroma of light grains and some hops. Taste is light malty sweetness with a pronounced hoppy bitter finish. A decent bitter with a light to medium body and decent carbonation.

I agree 100% with rubbishystuff. I can remember this was a very popular beer about 20years ago, I used to drink it at my family’s bar. So, I couldn’t wait to drink this beer again to rate it, And what a major disappointment! I thought maybe it was me. Did the recipe change? Or the brewery change? Anyways, still ok, but not what I remembered.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2016 Didn’t this used to be better? No wonder CAMRA was formed. Plain old bitter that is not as good as it used to be. Serving: Bottle
