I'm not sure why Doombar gets such bad press. It wouldn't be the first thing I'd order, but I wouldn't avoid it at all costs either.

In the main, because it's so bland - I'd seriously take something like Greene King IPA over a Doombar.  It suffers from Brewdog Syndrome - poor product with hype marketing.
Beer is like porn - you can buy it easily enough, but its so much more fun to make it [wink]

Fair enough. It just seems to get singled out often, when there's far more terrible beer out there than that.

I suspect the sale of the brewery to Molson Coors has caused a backlash? Has the beer deteriorated? I have only had it once or twice. Nowt special, not terrible.

Didn't like the stuff even when it was a "regional" brewery

Not sure. You sum it up well. Inoffensive, easy to drink, still miles better than John Smith's!

I've certainly had some decent cask Doombar in the past. The last bottle I had was pretty bland -not sure if that was because my tastes have changed or the brew has changed. I'd suspect the takeover has had some impact on it. Not sure if they still brew it at Rock, would probably still be a decent brew coming from there.
