Not impressed with this beer, if I wanted to have something that tasted like chemicals I’d have gone for a swim

Given the choice to drink bitter I more than likely would not. However, if I were to drink bitter this would likely be it.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2003 Nice dark appearance, with a thick creamy head. But again nothing different from other english stuff.

Not what I expected at all, but still good. I didn’t think it was very bitter though???

Just tastes like most NO2 can Draughts. Pretty bland. Why is it classified as ’Bitter’?

Not bad, but certainly nothing special. Tastes a bit like rust!! Average Rating here (when I posted this rating) flatter it.
