2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(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...

Hand pulled at the Goat and Tricycle, Bournemouth. Fudge coloured, no head. Sweet gravel aroma. Fairly plain, malty amber brew. Toffee notes, but nothing eye-poppingly delicious. Some hops in the finish. Pleasant, nowt more.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2004 Re-Rate, March 3rd, 2004. Three Horseshoes, Marlow Bottom (1/4 mile from the brewery) A lovely, full bodied bitter, full of flavour. One of rebellion's finest ales.
Original Rating, August 9th 2002 Dark and pretty full-bodied, though not as sweet as I would expect from Rebellion.
