Yikes. Pretty run of the mill, tastes similar to American adjunct lager with a heftier price tag. If you’re going to spend a couple more bucks , just buck up and get something actually decent.

Bright clear gold beer, small white head. Palate is minerally crisp and dry. Clean dry pale malt. Light touch of citric hops. Finishes dry with a little raw malt. Not too bad, tad dry though.

AndrewC (321) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Smells of sweet sickly malt. Light body, sweet malt, low hopping. Tastes a bit like a lager. Maybe this is where all those lager brewers got their inspiration.

Philym (917) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2013
Appearance: Clear amber with finger thick white head. Aroma: Fruity, bready, pepper, note of raisin, hint of cinnamon, a touch grassy and marmalade. Taste: Medium bitterness, low sweetness and sourness. Palate: Thick smooth texture, light/medium body, average/prickly carbonation, abrupt astringent bitter malty and fruity finish. Comments: Tasty and slight glass lace.

I’m surprised I quite like this one as a light pale ale. Aroma is mild, of geraniums and fresh oranges with a tad of malts. Looks lovely on the glass, with a head that dissipates quickly and a light honey colour. Taste is of light malts, some floral tones and orange from the hops. There’s a bit of caramel and biscuit there too. I was expecting some twang or metallic flavour but the finish is very clean, with barely any bitterness either. It’s not a flavour explosion but it’s a nice session ale.

Nilz (365) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUL 18, 2013
Bottle pours a clear orange ale with a thin white head. An easy quaffable beer, with a mild malty toffee and hop bitter.

On-tap. Pours clear copper-amber with a nice white head that quickly fades away. Gentle caramel and malt aromas. Malty sweetness, short bitter finish. Light body, too watery. Easy to drink but pretty basic.
