1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: OCT 25, 2005 Nitrokeg @ Big Cheese (Hungry Horse), Soton. (Jun 05) Thin with only noticeable flavour of husky grainy crystal malt. As it was served cold under nitrogen it deadened the unpleasantness although only slightly. (3 2 3 1 3)
Keg on the Exeter crawl - compared favourably to Tetleys but not quite up to the boddys. Quite similar to Tetleys although better balance and just boring rather than unpleasant. (3 2 3 2 3)

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the King and Queen in Brighton, England. Not too much going on here. Little if any aroma and watery malt flavor. Unoffensive, but you could easily find something better.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This one is very smooth, starts out thick but you let it settle after the pour and looks great, popular beer here in England

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nitro can. Pours with a massive head that oozes over the top edge of the glass. Not much aroma, but what is there is faintly malty and not unpleasant. Body is as smooth and creamy as I expected from the still body and shaving cream head. Like the aroma, the flavour is muted but not unpleasant. It actually starts to resemble a half-decent bitter as it warms up. That being said, I don’t see myself rushing to try it again any time soon.

1.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a tap. Coppery colour and a nice cream head. I couldn’t pick up any aroma or flavour. There was a brief moment of bitterness at the finish and that was that. I suppose you could drink this if you wanted to quench a thirst, but don’t expect much else.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught. Amber with dense creamy head - and that’s the good things you can say about this beer. Light notes of caramel, watery flavor - boring.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Decent rich brown amber pour, with copious white head and great lacing. Absolutely watery and lacking any true depth, hardly any flavor.
