“Pours reddish brown, with a light tan head. Aromas are bubble gum, banana and booze. Taste is cloyingly sweet, and barely bitter. The aftertaste ends abruptly. The mouthfeel is slightly thick and the carbonation is low.” -- by Wischylini

“Couleur dorée/orangée, trčs légčre mousse. Horrible nez alcool, vieux fruits (voir pourris), sucre artificiel. Arome d’alcool, vieux fruits, sucre et caramel artificiel, de l’aigreur, avec un corps épais sans carbonation. Horrible” -- by Calisky

“Can (BB Dec 2015). Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (wort, cereal, horse feed, grain), with a note of DMS. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Light body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Very raw, unfermented, and dirty. Utter drain pour.” -- by Ernest

“A truly awful beer. Artificially sweet with a overpoweringly rough whisky flavour.” -- by MalcolmTucker

“Bottle share. Cotteridge Beano. Looks like thin mushroom soup. Smells, and tastes like syrupy acetone. Shit, this is horrible.” -- by Garrold

“Bottled, sampled at The Cotteridge Convention, many thanks to SarkyNortherner for this one. Gold with fizzed head. Sweet but thin malts, there is an odd mashy note to it, a touch of rotting flesh. Not good.” -- by imdownthepub

“Can at the Cotteridge Convention, many thanks to Leighton for this one. Straw to gold with fizzed head. Sweet liquor, it wouldn’t be amiss in the hands of the local wino’s. Really pretty bad. Tried it, moving on.” -- by imdownthepub

“Masło, żelazo, okropny aromat! W smaku nie lepiej, jak czeski leżak z wysoką, nieco leśną goryczką. Żelazo i tępa słodowość. Fatalne!” -- by mgajdaczewa

“I hate to post negative reviews of beers, but this wasn’t a great offering. Murky and muddy, like a bad homebrewers first experiment. It didn’t taste awful, but wasn’t good either. It was thicker than the soup (which was good!) that I had, and just plain didn’t make me wanna come back here. (#5929, 1/24/2015)” -- by Braudog

“Bottle from Beers of Europe [220115]
Very dark ruby, frothy beige head, some lacing
Aroma - Didn’t like this at all. Odd, awful earthy coffee. Some odd roasted nut in there.
Taste - Dark sweet malts, but that awful coffee roast just mucks it all up, some dark fruits, odd nutty roast, bit vegetal, no, this is yuck
Palate - Soft carb, medium thin body, fairly sweet. Finish a bit dry, getting a hint of espresso, but coffee is still poor
Overall - A few sips of this and it was thrown out. The coffee in here is absolutely terrible. In fact the beer is just awful. Worst coffee beer I’ve had. 90 on rateBeer here? ... more like 9 to my palate ... yuck” -- by stravale

“Bottle. A- Grains, corn, grassy. A- Pale orange color, hazy liquid, off white head. T- Spices, grains, unbalanced. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, unbalanced finish. O- I hope there was something wrong with the bottle I had otherwise this was just plain awful. Lots of spice and unbalanced on the palate and just nothing good to say about it. Like a pale lager with a random mix of spices and herbs thrown in.” -- by HuskerTan

“25cl bottle, thrown-in at Delhaize Wondelgem. Aromaless, tasteless, palateless: mais/corn/rice-amped by nothing but adjuncts to reach its obligatory pils abv, else there is just less than water going on in this contracted cardboard solution. A poor, artificially boosted approximation for pils and even lager, even for a large generic supermarket in a country not setting high bars for pils. No offensive off-flavours besides ontological insipidity. Good accessoire to a bridge or tunnel.” -- by bartlebier

“Bottle by the beach on St Croix. A yellow beer, served with a lime. Thin, sweetish, cold, wet, mostly inoffensive and extremely forgettable.” -- by JorgeLee

“Thanks, Shane, for bringing this back from your "hashing." Clear light amber with a decent 1" white head that reduces quickly to the rim. Not bad looking. Taste is something else - malt and rice aren’t nice, too much carbonation, and a medium finish featuring water. Surprisingly weak.” -- by rondphoto

“Thanks Shane, for bringing this back from your "hashing" run. Clear light amber with a head that disappears in the same way it does on a Coke, no lace. Incredibly still drink. Taste is malt and maybe corn, but it is so light, I can’t tell much about what I’m drinking. There is some sort of small edge on the swallow. It would be good on a very hot afternoon, because it drinks like water. Otherwise, sorry, no.” -- by rondphoto

“From the archives: An alternative to water. If you want to have something else to drink, but do not want it to be overly beery. Sampled in Philadelphia, at Jim’s Stakes” -- by Senka

“Pours a golden color with a white head. The aroma is lemon, synthetic and sweetness. The flavor follows the nose.” -- by kevnic2008

“Bottle shared at the Cotteridge Convention 2014. Pours soupy yellow-brown with no carbonation and no head. The aroma is a mix of paint thinner, white sugar and pureed bananas. The beer tastes horrific and actually induced goose-bumps. There’s a bit of syrupy banana sauce, but it is overtaken by lightly acidic turpentine. Medium bodied, syrupy, astringent, chewy, with no carbonation. Sharp, sugary and harsh on the finish with more paint thinner, varnish, mashed banana. This stuff is truly, truly heinous. I honestly think if a person drank a whole bottle of this he (or she!) might do himself (or herself!) some serious harm.” -- by Leighton
