Advantages Aroma and Taste to match
Disadvantages Not the cheapest (bottled)
*** I was set a challenge in January 2006 by a friend, to drink 365 different beers in a year. I managed 503!! So i thoguth i would share some of my views. At the time I kept a record of all beers drunk, on which dates and how i rated them (out of 10) I still have the list.
First of all let me explain before I did this I was very much a Lager drinker, Ales I didnt mind but i wasnt very fond of Bitters & Stouts.
With this in mind;
For Lager, anything above a 7 was good
For Ale, anything above a 5 was good
For Bitter & Stout anything above a 4 was good
I'm happy to say my tastes are now much more varied and i continue to appreciate all types of beer as often as I can!***
Not a bad score for a bitter, now i dont think The Adnams Brewery make a bad beer. They are one of those "Small" Breweries who just dont seem to be able to get it wrong!!The word for this is Distictive! It stands out, the taste sets it aside from a lot of the beers i was drinking at the time. (I did drink alot where they merged into each other so it was always nice when one stuck out from the crowd!) if you have it once you could probably pick it out in a blind taste test there after! I know a few friends who have tried this and i havent come accross any one who doesnt like it and we have differing tatses!
Now i wiouldnt say its a world beater and Adnams do better themselves but if you are looking to start trying different beers, starting with the Adnams collection is highly recommended.I wont go in to the character of the beer as the other reviews have covered that off nicely (Read "tange's" review on this one it captures it perfectly!
I drank bottled from a supermarket (easy to get hold of but not the cheapest) and drank slightly chilled
