Watneys Red Barrel

Beer score: 5.1
A little too much carbonation. Decent and drinkable with a weak coppery taste. Some wetness. Despite coming from London, England, it's not much better than an American "red" beer or weak lager. This beer has been retired, which might be a good thing, though according to some of my Brit friends this beer had improved greatly over its taste 40 or so years ago. An interesting note about Watneys Red Barrel brew: It's actually mentioned in two Monty Python skits. I'll leave it to you to figure out which skits.
