A Mes rate: Cask at Quinns Dark coloured bitter with lots of malt and some sweet fruity notes. Very bland and boring.

Cask at the Kings Head, Fritwell, Oxon, 05-08-07 Poured amber in colour, nice fruity aroma which not surprisingly was replicated in the mouth, good solid, fruity beer with nice dry finish. Very nice.

berkshirejohn (4396) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2007
Cask at the Old Manor House (JDW), Bracknell. Chestnut with an off-white head; deep malty aroma; fruity taste finishing with a slightly dry, rounded, bitterness. A well balanced bitter, but rather thin.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2006
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.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2006
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.

peter48er (180) - Liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2006
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.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2006
Cask (handpump) at the Three Horseshoes, Marlow Bottom. Although quite dark and full bodied for a session bitter, this didn’t really stand up to comparison with the Rebellion Roasted Nuts sampled alongside it. Deep copper colour. Not much aroma, although some soft toffee notes developed as the beer warmed. Sweetish initial impact, but dry malt comes through strongly and, by the finish, there’s a very desiccated mouthfeel. Some licorice on the palate. Not too bitter. The overall emphasis is on the malt, but there was no great depth of flavour so I thought it came over a bit wishy-washy in the flavour department. But, as I said before, that could have been because I was drinking it alongside a much more fully flavoured beer.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 5, 2005
(cask at Akkurat, Stockholm) Clear reddish amber with a rich firm tan head. Vague chemical aroma of nuts, cedar wood, diacetyl and oranges. Light floral flavour of nuts and paint with a harsh bark like bitternes. Hints of citric acid and diacetyl. The overall impression is; Chemical! Bitter nutty aftertaste with a strong note of butterscotch. Not a fan...
