Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. I haven’t had much good to say about Rebellion until now. This is amber with a small white head. Hop and malt aroma was followed by a tasty, well-balanced bitter with malt, grasy hops and some sourness.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask conditioned @ Giddy Bridge (JDW), Soton. Not unusually for a Spoons they didnt write the brewery on the pumpclip, bizarrely however they decided to call it Gal Smuggler which they confirmed was Rebellion. Lots of malty flavours with some nutty toffee. Dry malty body with a fairly bitter finish. I quite liked the dry bitter feel of this beeer but couldnt get on with the nutty malt flavours.

Cask @ The ’Freshie’ Formby.
Reddish beer rather lacking in body and flavour..Quite bitterwith malt dominating.
Chose this in preference to the Mutiny which was also on cask which was perhaps a mistake based on my previous tastings of this beer.
