Keg at the Lakeside while enjoying the darts and being subjected to a day of terrible beer. As a fully paid up member of CAMRA drinking a pint of this felt like sacrilege. I expected it to be bad and it was. Poured amber with a thick cream nitrogen blanket on top. Bland tasting in the extreme. Some malty flavour with an unpleasant vegetable finish. Watery and just bad. Why do people drink this crap?

(Keg): Amber colour, white creamy head. Aroma is weak, slight malt and fruit. Malty flavour, slight hops, fruit and biscuit. Was expecting much worse but it’s rather palatable compared to other mainstream beers.

Draft at Miller and Carter, Solihull. Poured a lively medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is dry, weak malt leading to a medium to weak bitter, slightly hoppy, maly flavour. It’s cool, has a watery palate and is full of life. I guess they will sell loads on a hot summer day. It’s not the worst beer in the world by a long way.

deep caramel .. . thick foam .. . smells of light grainy sand, mud, and english grains .. . soft carboantion .. . quite smooth i suppose .. . a simple beer .. . . Rabbits jump and they live for 8 years. Dogs run and they live for 15 years.
Turtles do nothing and they live for 150 years. Lesson learned.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Two half-pints in Blackfriers Theatre (Boston, Lincolnshire) before and at half-time during ’Sleeping Beauty’ by The Vienna Festival Ballet on 31 Mar 2013.
Dark amber body with a full creamy head that stayed the distance on both halves. It looked pretty good to be honest.
Too cold to have an aroma at first, as it warmed a malty molasses and mixed dark fruits smell began to appear.
The taste took its time to arrive because of the coldness, but it turns out the beer is slightly malty and semi-sweet throughout. Fairly smooth in texture as the name suggests, although I think smoothbland rather than smoothflow would suit it more.
