fiulijn (19385) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2005
Blond color. Light malt aroma. Very common taste, with a soft residual sweetness, but unpleasantly an unbalanced final; strange...

harrisoni (17351) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2013
33cl bottle from Budgens Islington drunk at Shitty Beer Night 2013. Clear pale gold, thin rim of white bubbles that quickly dissipates. Well it smells of wet newspaper mainly. Some rotten garbage. If I�m being generous, then some metallic lemon masquerading as hops. Flavour - well hmmm. Not much. Thankfully. It�s fairly horrific. Reminds me of bad gin. Do I really have to finish this? Palate - 2/5 it has some carbonation. Overall - 5/20. I mean it�s horrible. I finished the 33cl bottle but only cos I had to. Yuck.
