Cask, The Salmon, Leicester. As Marlow Smuggler. Amber with an off white foam. Aromas are weetabix malts with some nuttiness. Earthy hops with hints of melon and citrus. Some soapy floral notes with trace cardboard. Flavours are sweet toffee with melon and slightly tart lemon. Yeasty and a bit unrefined. OK.

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2017 In Arbour Park bar; dark amber; slight toffee aroma; malty, bready taste with decent level of bitterness; very quaffable, good length

The_Osprey (9723) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2016
November 2016 - Cask handpull at Bootlegger, High Wycombe, as ’Marlow Rebellion Smuggler’. Dark orange or brown, still and translucent with a dense foamy light brown head, very full lacing. Aroma is toffee and caramel wafer – simple and sugary, but nice. Body is light with soft to tingly carbonation. Taste is bready, toffee, varnish and spicy dryness, dry floral woody finish. Pretty decent traditional bitter. (3.3)

ManVsBeer (11205) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2016
Huddersfield Oktoberfest 2016. Dark amber coloured ale with a very palatable texture. Bitter in character, but not overly bitter.

jmgreenuk (10386) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 21, 2016
Cask at the Hope & Champion, Beaconsfield. Poured a clear dark brown with a frothy white head. The aroma is light woody hop, some malt notes. The flavour is moderate bitter with a light woody hop bitter, light fruit palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A decent session ale.

ThreeCats (1014) - ISRAEL - JUN 24, 2016
Hazyish mahogany with sticky head. Aroma hoppy and hearty. Taste citrusy and flowery, hoppier than a normal biter, but very good

Tradpint (13) - Amersham, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2016
Pint in knobbly mug on gravity dispense from The Swan, West Wycombe. Very nice and well rounded with Rebellion’s characteristic balance between biscuit and bitter. Warmer than I’m used to and maybe slightly stale but this is the cheapest pub in this touristy village (a little bit of the Cotswolds in Bucks). Whilst the pub doing food was packed (and in fact I had slipped out during the epic wait for my lunch) here there was no food, and as soon as I was served the landlady came sat down in the lounge with a dog on her lap and a newspaper crossword, Surreally, the only other customers were a Polish family drinking either juice or Fosters from cans. I guess a can is what you get if you have the temerity to ask for lager!

Mr_Pink_152 (5773) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2015
Tried at the Nottingham beer festival 2015. Amber colour with a white head. Fruity hops with a bitter finish.

MrTipple (7004) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2014
Aroma:bread and light caramel malts, some hay. Appearance: light hazy, dark brown, small creamy light beige head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: creamy texture, soft carbonation, quite malty with bread and light cereals again. Overall: decent Bitter, but rather unremarkable. Pint at the King’s Arms, Amersham.

BeerViking (5133) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2014
Cask, dark brown with a lasting fine ivory head, fruity hoppy nose, rich dry malty fruity body. Light herbal bitterness. Tasty.

Theydon_Bois (21503) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2014
