The Governor (Marco Pierre White)

Hey everyone, so today I have gone for a beer that is tied to a celebrity name. I wonder if this beer will be more name than substance? Hope you all enjoy :)

The Governor (Marco Pierre White)

J.W.Lees
Brewed and Bottled:
J.W. Lees & Co Ltd,
Greengate Brewery, 
Middleton, Manchester, 
M24 2AX, United Kingdom.




Alcoholic Percentage:
4.1% Vol

500ml

Very Bitter, Bland, Dry, Taste of Iron

Amber, Dark Orange
Odour:
Very Little Odour, Slight Iron


General Thoughts:
This is a very bitter beer that is extremly dry in taste. This beer also has very little flavour which is a real let down, it is actually very bland in flavour. There is nothing distinguishable about this beer , very disappointing. I was really hoping for a beer with deep flavours, nice hop aromas and full flavour, however I didn't get any of that. I wouldn't recommend this beer at all. I was very disappointed and was not worth the money it costs to buy. I have actually given this beer the lowest score I have given any beer. Unfortunately I think this beer has fallen to more name than substance.

Price:
€2.79 (based on a Dublin Tesco on the 06/11/2012)
