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.

Gentle malt aroma followed by an even gentler malt flavour and a very soft mouthfeel. Hops not especially in evidence until the finish which is surprisingly long. A very pleasant beer and one which even the uninitiated would not find offensive. Odd name for a beer brewed in the least maritime of England’s counties.

Cask @ Woking Beer Festival 2009. Pours a deep dark chestnut colour with an off-white head;. Good aroma of malt and fruit, the taste is also fruity which leads to a dry bitter finish. A very well made beer.

Cask (Three Horseshoes, Marlow)
Sweet fruity aroma, rich and uplifting. Looks like a classic dark bitter, with a small tight head. A super full fruity body - very rich roasty taste. Finish is rich and again packed with roasty malts. Late finish lets the hops shine a bit more - they’re very fruity. Classic bitter.

Cask at the Grape and Grain Autumn beer festival, Crystal Palace. Mahogany coloured pour with a white head. Bonfire toffee, nuts and caramel aroma. Toffee apple and plum jam flavour. Interesting.

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.

Pint in knobbly mug on gravity dispense from The Swan, West Wycombe. Very nice and well rounded with Rebellion’s characteristic balance between biscuit and bitter. Warmer than I’m used to and maybe slightly stale but this is the cheapest pub in this touristy village (a little bit of the Cotswolds in Bucks). Whilst the pub doing food was packed (and in fact I had slipped out during the epic wait for my lunch) here there was no food, and as soon as I was served the landlady came sat down in the lounge with a dog on her lap and a newspaper crossword, Surreally, the only other customers were a Polish family drinking either juice or Fosters from cans. I guess a can is what you get if you have the temerity to ask for lager!

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.
