1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Perhaps the worst bitter I’ve ever had. This beer is often found on nitro-taps and this just makes it even more difficult to stomach. Drink this if you want to fit in with the dockworkers who can’t taste anything anymore anyway. Chances are, I hope, the pub has a better bitter on tap.

Very boring - id question anyone who gave this 50% and really suggest they drink lager or cider

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Oddfellows Arms, Kegworth, Derbyshire - Smooth, bland aroma - not much malt or hops. Medium amber clear with off-white lacing head. Watery body, low carbonation. Smooth overall flavor, not remarkable. Light bitterness, not very sweet, no acidity. After is mild bitter. OK but not spectacular.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I don’t mind this nitro can, I have much more found memories of drinking this on tap in London, but I’m afraid they are much too old other than for a nostalgia rating. In the can in Canada though, it pours thick and creamy as you would expect, with a more assertive body than Boddingtons. And there actually is a slight malt character to the taste and very slight hint of hop bitterness. But the nitro bubbles take care of most of the flavours; what you are left with is a very easy drinking low alcohol beer that you could do far worse than if this is your style.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nut brown beer with a very white and dense head. The aroma is sweet with notes of nuts and caramel. The flavor is of nuts, hops, and roasted malt with a very dry end. The mouthfeel is very soft.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at the original Hard Rock Cafe in London of all places. Pours a dark amber color with a thin light beige head. Thin lacing. Mellow malt aroma. Very smooth drinking, with flavors of malt, brown sugar, sweet fruit and hops. The finish is lightly bitter but does not last very long. Decent overall, but could be better.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Canned. Said Pub draught Ale on the can but I am assuming this is the right one. Golden colour with extra thick nitro head. Lager nose (this is common in British ales...they smell like lagers!). Slight roasty malt, rather sharp, with light hops. The bitterness carries welll though. Light body for an ale.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a chesnut brown body with a very fluffy and thick off-white head. I can detect almost no aromas at all, but I am getting a very faint amount of malt in the aroma. Taste is actually almost non-existant, and I am lacking words that can describe it. Nice mouth feel though, and I imagine that due to its low alcohol, you could put a few of these away with no problems.
