No aroma what is there is burntness for some reason. Pours huge head however appearance is nice. Taste has soem hops in it bittering dry hops however terribly blended and taste is not good. What i expected i suppose.

Beer No 9 on the Wilsons’ Road Trip 2005. Nitrokeg at Twirl of Hay Brewer’s Fayre, Chester. Another apalling nitrokeg version of a beer which once held some appeal. Brownish with nitro head. Unlike the Boddies you can just about make out some beer like aromas through the nitrogen - mainly malt, caramel. Disgusting nitro mouthfeel. Mild minerally aftertaste with a very small amount of hop bitterness. Shudder.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 (Can of original), would have this ahead of the smooth. Tetley’s tends to be a good beer that is widely available, but have the Imperial if you’re after the proper stuff (if you can get hold of it). Translucent copper appearance, it’s carbonated and quite bitter but the head tends to fizz out. Very good flavour, full of toffee/caramel/nut malt though I suppose there’s not that much in the way of finish. 3.8% ABV is quite common for a standard bitter but seems pretty weak for me, though it’s probably my personal favourite party session beer. Overall good.

Very little to say. Everything about this beer is mediocre. You’d drink it if it was the only pint on offer. Aroma is faint and possibly malty. A flat (no, flaccid) taste, a hint of bitterness, but not enough. Boring. No character or personality.

I’d love to know how this beer got by the Tetley’s tea trademark (is it a country thing??!). Anywho, this one is passable, but not very good, with typical flavors and aromas. It is fairly smooth.

Smoothflow, Nitrokeg. Light amber with extensive Nitrogen bubbles and big head. Tinny gassy product, soapy and pretty awful.

More intriguing than good, really. Very still, with an amazing creamy, thick, and long-lasting head. The head lasts all the way to the bottom of the pint. Taste is nothing special, with the most prominant taste of bitter.
