Bottle from The Beerhive. Clear ruby/amber body with a thin beige head. No visible carbonation. Nice lacing. Weak aroma of grain, steel and earth. Flavour of... not very much - maybe weak tea and toffee. Very light with no depth at all. Thin body with a watery texture. Soft fizz. Definitely not as bad a the ratings from 2010 and before suggest, but this just feels a bit diluted and watery.
