Adnams Regatta

From notes, Summer 2007 when I drank this at “On the Waterfront” in Exeter, Devon, England. Spent MANY, many happy hours at this pub eating the “dustbin lids” pizza’s as a student – now I’m back with the wife and kids! GULP.
Well – what a shock! Adnams is a brewery that I have GREAT respect for, and generally I love their beers, but this was a HORRIBLE disappointment. Essentially a lager, and not a very good one at that. I guess this is simply one of these, dumbed down Golden Ales that have been popular in England over the last few years – a tradegy IMO, but there you go.
Summer drinking potential, but to be honest this is not an English Bitter at all.
This is SUCH a shame to me – a great brewer that makes great beers and this is problematic on two levels. Firstly it’s just not a good beer, but more importantly it makes me sad to see Adnams stoop to this level.
