I personally rate this beer as probably the worst possible example of a standard bitter in the UK. It is quite simply awful and is one of the reasons that real ale gets a bad name. This is not even passable as a last resort, astringant bordering on nasty this is a beer to avoid like the plague.

I remember the school bully flushing my head in the toilet. A very similar experience as sipping a pint of Tetley's, but at least there was a blend of flavours at school.

oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. It'll get you drunk - and anything that can do that can't be all bad, can it? Well... yes.

Horrible, horrible cask ale that isn't helped by the fact its sold in so many pubs that can't look after cask ale. Of course even a well kept cellar can't make this good.

A pleasant standard English bitter. Far from brilliant, though.

Pale session bitter, hops dominant in taste and aftertaste. IMHO an underrated beer, maybe because the brewery is owned by a Danish brewing giant or because it is rather easy to find and therefore odds that you come across a badly kept pint are higher. Certainly lightyears better than "no nonsense" bitter ....

Pale - yes,try adding a tetleys tea bag! Incipid if not at the right temperature (which it usually isn\'t), but there again what do you expect from this \"Carlsberg\" when they\'re supposed to sell \"Probably the Best Lager in the World\". For me they can keep the lot!
