chriso (7512) - 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...

DanielBrown (4212) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2004
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.

Amber with a generous fluffy head. Good solid bitter front that sorts you right out.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2002
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.
