Pours a lovely rich dark chocolate colour with a lasting head.
Very fruit tones. I would say it’s a Christmas pudding in a glass. Currants and toffee/caramel. Cloves and cherries.
Very smooth going down. Quite thin, and nowhere near as much flavour as smell.
It’s okay. Not a bad drop. Pleasantly simple going down
Very gassy with a very lacey head.
Pours lighter than the photo would suggest.
Sweet but not sweet. Not sure how to say that. Almost golden syrup / treacle sweet.
A bit hoppy with more burnt sugaryness.
Designed by the English band, Elbow and brewed by Robinsons.
Good looking labelling, pours amber with a bit of fizz.
Has the standard malty fruity smells and a very slight sweety/nutty flavour with a bitter undertone.
Wasn’t the best brew of the night, but certainly would buy “if on offer”
I can’t remember any of Elbow’s songs and this beer is equally unremarkable. But like the band, I wouldn’t be adversed to drinking it if it was on offer. A good fit then! But the title of the beer would suggest a ‘ROCKET’ of flavour. Bit of a let down.
Part of my local shop 2 for £3. Not seen it before so always willing to try! Plus, I like the name.
Pours a fairly cloudy off amber with a large head. Quite lacy with simple hoppy smells.
Tastes quite country like, grass/straw flavours. Pretty refreshing, however quite dry with a toffee or caramaly aftertaste.
I don’t like blonde lagers so was a little worried it might be a bit like that but pleasantly proved wrong. I would drink again. Very drinkable.
My local shop stocked these as part of their 2 for £3 promotion. Well worth a flutter.
Nice dark pour and a frothy head but generally a standard pint of bitter. No great tastes, just the usual hoppiness and bitterness.
Not massively amazing bit no nasty tastes and could quite happily drink more of these. At £1.50 a bottle. Probably wouldn’t be first choice on draught though.
