2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
In the seventies, this used to have a reputation out of all proportion to its actual qualities. Those ’in the know’ always drank Ordinary. Since then it has been through the meat-grinder finally arriving 40 miles up country at the charmless Bedford production facility. Always rather thin for its gravity, it has never had much aroma. Medium bitter, the over-riding flavour is of hedgerow fruits with little of the toffee/caramel often encountered in mid-gravity bitters. Reasonable bitter finish though.Hardly a favourite.
