Tasting Summary

These comments are the opinion of the individual reviewer and represent what they thought of the beer on a particular day in a particular pub. If a review is less favourable, it may be because the beer suffered somewhere in the supply chain between them and the brewery.

GarryExcellent17 Apr 2011 To the usual standard
GarryExcellent15 Feb 2011 Gosh I deliberated over this. This tasted almost... almost... as good as DBA from the hey day of Ind Coope. Had the sweetness tempered by the chestnutty flavour; and the alcohol bite; just lacked something tiny... As close to 5 stars as you can get...
GarryGood07 Dec 2010 A rare treat, a pub which serves this beer which used to be readily available. Seems to have benefited by it's move to Lee's, has become more chestnutty and flavour but still not as bitter in it's prime.

The Roebuck Inn, Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire

GarryExcellent29 Mar 2011 This is much better than last time. Distinctive tastes present with strong flavours, almost metallic, on the back of the palette. Just a hint of the original nose. Almost 5 star
GarryPoor18 Mar 2011 Oh dear. So looked forward to, but such a let down; where were the the DBA tastes? Maybe my palette was blunted due to having a few at the beer festival but this was bland and insipid; will try again but tres disappointing.

ChrisEGood16 Nov 2010 Selling well tonight. This beer seems to have improved since it moved to Lees. It was good to see the barman having a pint of it.
ChrisEGood04 Feb 2010 I am not sure who brews this now. It is becoming an increasingly rare beer these days, and this was considerably better than the last time that I drank it, with much more of the original flavour from Ind Coope Burton days.

IanGood24 Aug 2010 Wow, haven't had this in ages, but that yeast aroma is so distinctive. Very drinkable bitter.
