Steamin’ Billy Brew Co. Ltd. 1485 (5%)

1485 - 1Maybe I’ve had a downer on this brewery since we fell out on Twitter after I complained that the advertising in one of their pubs was sexist, but this is dreary malty water.
Brewed to tie in with the Richard III celebrations in Leicester (or possibly an already brewed beer rebadged to fit), 1485 smells of caramel  and tastes of limp watery toffee and digestive biscuits.
There’s the slightest hint of aniseed and herbs from the hops, but in all honesty this is a really dull middle-of-the-road Everard’s style boring bitter.
Putting it in a can doesn’t make it any better.
