Hey, it’s not the greatest bitter, but drinkable and a lot better than some of the other reviews give it credit for.

This beer gives me good memories of sneaking a few pints into the lawn at Wimbleton to watch Henmin and Rafter play. Nothing particuarily special about this brew, but nothing offensive either. Bitter hops, nice malt. Liked the nitro can.

Not too shabby, a nice beer to introduce to America and we are gladit’s here. A little different than Boddington’s or Guinness.

JonMoore (1861) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2004
A below average beer with nothing really to recommend it. I’d rather not bother. Bland, weak and no character. Looks the part, but that’s about it.

beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 23, 2004
The official beer of English rugby, if I’m not mistaken. Um, just short of decent, a weird very bitter taste. Slightly crisp. Not something I’d prefer.

vanvenlo (1236) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 23, 2004
28 May 2004 - Slighly floral but Inauspious aroma. Head retains, good sheet lacing, amber clear colour. Flavour isa fruity hop, leaves some sweetness and some hop bitterness, light mouthfeel, smooth flat ana a lingering bitterness.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2004
On draft at the Old Bay. Served under nitrogen, great creamy and long lasting head. Lots of great malt, easy on the hops, easy on the alc. Excellent session ale, great at happy hour (compare to Yards hand pumped ESA)

DanielBrown (3819) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2004
Nitro keg at a cricket club pavillion, nr Drayton Manor Park. OK, palatable, but uninspiring beer. Nice tawny colour, and the nitro stylee, does indeed make it very smooth and creamy. Sweet flavour, medium bitterness only and toffe notes.

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 12, 2004
Orange to brown colour, high white head. The official description is quite right: soft and creamy. Good hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste.

A beer made to taste like a bitter, I suppose. Avoid at all costs unless on cask. The "smoothflow" crap is just miserable, as is the widget can. Basically, you can find a better bitter pretty much anywhere.
