Director’s cut

Ohe dear, what a disappointment.  I tried a bottle of Courage Directors (4.8%), now brewed by Wells & Young’s.  My first disappointment was when I read the bottle label and found that the ingredients included “Colour E150C”.  Obviously somebody has got an idea about what colour a beer should be, and when the product doesn’t match up to expectations, they are prepared to use a bit of artificial help.

The beer smells slightly sweet, and also has a slightly sweet – almost sickly – taste on top of the bitterness – again, the ingredients include sugar, which must be to supplement the sugars in the malt.  Perhaps it was because of what I had read in the list of ingredients, but it tasted a bit “artificial” – I was quite disappointed.  Pints of the draught version that I have drunk in the past have tasted OK – I suppose that the recipe could be different – or maybe it’s because they don’t print the ingredients on the side of the glass!  Perhaps I just wasn’t in the right mood when I tried the bottled version.
