novels (424) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2012
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.

Garrold (1710) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2014
Bottle. Asda. Got this in for Father. Clear amber. Decent, lasting, white head. Lots of caramel malt. Light grassiness. A bit nutty. Taste is more of that. Smooth palate, albeit a bit papery, and thin. Finishes soft sweet. Some dry. Far removed from drinking this straight from the cask at the Keys, many moons ago...

Arek (197) - Zielona Góra, POLAND - OCT 10, 2014
Bottle 0,5 l, ASDA, Bournemouth, England, UK. Bursztynowe, klarownie piwo z grubą i sztywna pianą oraz słodowym, karmelowym aromatem. W smaku gęste, słodowe z lekką goryczką i słabym posmakiem alkoholu na finiszu.

Osprey87 (2028) - WALES - OCT 2, 2014
Bottle, 4.4%. From ASDA. Clear orange, high carbonation - lots of bubbles. White head endures and expands over time. Smell is a bit yeasty. Taste starts with mild caramel, syrup from canned peaches. There is a slight yeasty sharpness to start but it dies down quickly to leave a beer that is caramel forward. Nice enough, but not very interesting.

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.
