Pint at Jamie's Italian Newcastle. Light orange colour, thin head. Not much in the way of flavour but refreshing enough

UPDATED: JUL 17, 2015 Half pint at Norfolk Arms, Glossop. I thought Iíd give this its tenth review. No aroma. Pale amber with tiny head, medium carbonation. Chalky sweet mouthfeel followed by short vegetal hop finish. Not much happening, good thirst quencher.

Not so good this one. Titus Andronicus were howling away, they said I was a hipster because I had their albums and only hipsters had them because they hadnít been released in the UK. This was a general comment, not directed at me but I took it personally. They covered Champagne Supernova which was weird. The people in front were moaning because he kept tuning his guitar and this was seen as ínot very punkí. So there...

The more you drink the better it gets. Once you have acquired the taste itís a great larger and a cheap drink at £2.25 a pint at time of writing. WARNING - can be quite explosive substance and may cause an inexperienced bar person some trouble when pulling, Iíve seen it happen many times!

Ordinary lager lower than usual in alcohol content, but maintains its flavour.

Ungstrup (31499) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2009
Draft. A light golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of malt and mango - a bit light. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and citrus. Boring.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2009
Cask at the Three Crowns in Macclesfield, not the United pub on Hurdsfield Road, the one on the way to the MTFC football ground. I bought one months ago but didnít rate it as it was obviously off. I was mistaken, it is that rubbish. Over powering balsamic vinegar, piss stained passages, a tramps vest etc while remaining itís watery weak core. I feel bad rubbishing some manís hard work but this is awful. The worst beer Iíve ever had. Iím not going to give it all 1ís as that is a little disrespectful but I was tempted.
