COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Filtered, pasteurised and force-carbonated. Available in kegs and cans.
Originally brewed by Samuel Webster in the Fountain Head Brewery in Halifax. Brewed at John Smiths from 1996. In 2003, the Websters brands were acquired by a company called Silvan Brands, about whom it has proved impossible to obtain any information other than that their registered office is in Edinburgh. The beers have been brewed under contract at Thomas Hardy Burtonwood since 2004.

kwik-lime (1177) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2004
A rather dull and generic beer. Tastes rather watery, with very little of interst going on. Not actively nasty, and is fine with nothing better on offer, but hardly a beer to get excited about.

jfm (1724) - Holbæk, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2004
Light malty start with some bittterness in the finish. Feels rather thin and watery. Not the best bitter out there.

Joeh (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2004 Tested the Keg variety, Working Mans Club, Wooburn Green, Bucks. Nasty keg bitter. Tastes of nothing except an unpleasent staleness. All keg bitters are so devoid of character, I don't see the point in them. Why can't pubs stock belgians or English beers in bottles??

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2004
Can. Toffee aroma and dull hops. Watery flavour with mild bitterness. Watery yet slightly creamy mouthfeel. Boring can bitter.

Bov (9077) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 27, 2004
I had this beer many years ago at one time when I was too lazy and stupid to write my thoughts. I will update this as soon as I get my hands on this beer again.

nigos (630) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2003
Rusty copper hue with a creamy white head. Rusty hop aroma which follows through to the taste. Very thin and uninteresting.

RobBestwick (583) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 11, 2003
Sampled from 500 ml can, highly rusty aroma, pours with a dark copper hue and a white head, minimal carbonation, very rusty and slightly woody bitter taste, fairly watery finish, bog standard bitter.

crazyvin (1861) - New York, USA - APR 27, 2003
smelled carmelly, had a nice amber colour, a watered donw hops flavour. The only up note on this beer was that it was a gift from england.

SilkTork (5123) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2006 Feb, 2003 Can. Why did I buy this? As punishment I now have to write something about it. How about: crap. [1.1]
Feb, 2004 Keg @ Australian Arms, Ramsgate. Typical keg bitter. Cold. Hazy dark amber. Not a lot of flavour apart from a constant stewed cardboard bitterness that unfortunately lingers. Thin bodied and not very nice. [0.9]
Feb, 2006 Keg @ <a href=http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/27/278 Cow, Larkfield Drinkable beer. But thin, carbonated, poor quality and dull. [1.9]
Aug, 2006 Keg @ The Walnut Tree, Eccles, Kent. Quite pleasantly drinkable for a cardboard keg. [2.2]
