Can - sampled on a Thames river tour in London. My first beer on a long trip, I was severely jet lagged and this made me feel a little better on a rainy day. Decent bitter, but nothing really special. At least UK mass-produced beers arent of the coors lite variety.

DruncanVeasey (8063) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2007 Foams like a mad wizards potion. Metal, metal and the merest sniff of soapy fruit. Extortionately expensive tall green cylinder sampled reluctantly (out of Guinness glass) on the island of Corfu. Bitter-lite designed to get old men painlessly pissed. (Re-rate) Fluff and cabbage water. A trace of nutty malt, but mostly cardboard. Absolute bilge. Couldnt finish it.

Enjoyed a short stint of popularity here in Canada. You dont see it much anymore in the pubs and bars, but you can still get it in the can. A nice, smooth bitter with little aftertaste.

yngwie (16718) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2006
Nitro-keg. Clear, copper-colored beer with a dense, creamy off-white head. Malt and some caramel in the nose. Malty flavor with caramel-notes. Wheres the hops? Lacks the bitterness in the finish too. Velvety and thin in the mouth. Too pleasant in a way, ie boring. (060710)

On tap in Winchester, UK. Reddish color. Creamy head a bit like a Guinness. Suprisingly hoppy and bitter. Some flowers also. Nice and good.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 20, 2006
Very similar to Boddingtons in texture, and appearance. Nice dark body, smooth nitrogen head. No aroma evident. Good taste, light hops dominated by the malts, light fruit accents. Smooth and cool ending thats typical for a nitrogen beer.

Smooth is a good word for it. Watery works too. Lightest bitter ive ever had. A touch of hops, but i was expecting more

Brown in color with white thick head. Bitter malt smell that led to a bitter copper dry taste.
