I've not had a pint of original for ages. Living in Leicester makes it kind of ubiquitous. It's a shame really cos it is a nice beer, not much wrong with it if it is a little boring. Easy to drink I think I still prefer Everards Beacon though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
5th Sep 2012 and I’m in The Fighting Cocks, Oakengates: the only pub owned by the Ironbridge Brewery. Everards were involved with setting up this joint venture; hence their beers are always available in this pub. I had a hand-pulled pint in a straight UK sleeve glass.
Amber bodied; with an off-white head.
The nose and taste was a good mix of flavours: hoppy and malty at the same time, fruity hops, nutty malts with a semi-sweet start and a mildly-bitter finish, both to the smell and taste.
I’d forgotten how good this was: not had a pint of this for years, I’ll try and rectify that a lttle more often now I’ve re-visited it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A slightly fizzy pint with a foamy head that reduced to a thin film. Sweet but not overly so, a slightly bitter taste to balance it out. Refreshing but at 5.2% it’s not one I’d choose as a guzzler.
