COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

A wholesome, traditional, bracing bitter. Branded Drinks Partnership are committed to the development of tradtionally brewed beers. All our beers are hand-brewed, following unique recipes and using only the finest, freshest ingredients. Rumpy Pumpy is brewed with premium malted barley from Dorset and Devon and hops from the best growers in Kent and Worcestershire. It is a full-bodied bitter with a clean hoppy finish. All in the best possible taste.

Bitter aroma. Clear amber colour with good head. Bitter, but not overpowing, very nice smooth finish with a nutty profile. Medium body with low to medium carbonation.

500ml bottle from Beers of Europe, bought because I’m a big fan of pumpclipparade, but despite the name, the label is tame. Pours hazy yellow gold, nice white head. Aromas of lemon yoghurt, which is odd. Taste has a weird yeasty note, some malt. Tangy finish. Not a bitter in the slightest. What does ’hand-brewed’ even mean?Are they drawing water by the individual bucket? Stirring the mash with their hands? Name me a beer that requires no human input, even if you just flick a switch it’s hand-brewed. Meaningless. Also appears to be brewed in Gloucester these days.

AshtonMcCobb (2380) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 14, 2014
50cl bottle. Appearance - hazy golden with a nice fluffy head. Nose - lemon with a natural yoghurt primarily. Taste - stale malt, more yoghurt. Palate - light to medium bodied with a thin but tangy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - this falls somewhere between a pale ale and a wierdly unbalanced Belgian Ale.

Light unclear medium amber orange color with a small to average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, nutty, dusty, light to moderate yeasty. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. (160808)

Bottle. Copper with a small head. Malty aroma. Malty and fruity flavours with some toffee. Hints of metal. Ok enough.

yngwie (13214) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 21, 2008
Bottle. (Branded Drinks) It pours a next-to clear rather dark golden body with a white head. As expected, the aroma is quite bready, with toffee and a pleasant fruityness. Somehow I think I can sense the thin body through my nose. Anyway, it is thin in the mouth, low on carbonation, with a bready, toffeeish flavor, as well as a gentle, fruity touch from the hops. Not much bitterness, neither initially nor in the finish, but the hops are sure present. A true session beer meaning it’s easy to drink and low on alcohol, but it’s rather boring and there’s thirteen on the dozen of these beers. (070521)

Finn (4032) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2008
Bottle 0,5l. Golden colored. Unclear. A rapidly disappearing fluffy head. Very weak aroma. Some caramel in the flavor but overall watery.

Maria (10133) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2007
Dark amber with a moderate head. The aroma is hoppy and the flavour has the same nice notes of aroma hops, almost like a Shepherd Neame beer. It also has notes of caramel and a nice bitterness. Light, quenching and nice without and deep or complex notes.

KnutAlbert (6012) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2007
I’m all for a better range of English beers in Norway, but medicore bitters with "funny" labels is not the answer. Watery, some sweet malt, a little bitterness, but nothing approaching the best British bitters.
