Had this after getting a good deal at Sainsbury. I’m still pondering whether it was worth the 50p I paid for it. Not much of an aroma to speak of. Flavours of hops, fruit, and slight malt. Finish is overly bitter. Overall very dissapointing.

greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 11, 2007
Date: 23/11/2005 Location: Premier Travel Inn near Pudsey, Leeds Notes: Boring, bland, gassy, and generally unremarkable. Some flavour and aroma, with no real unpleasantness. It was all they had at the Inn! Tastes just the same in NZ.

O dear, another bland beer ’made’ by Interbrew. Typically weak, tastless keg bitter with artificially creamy head. Can’t they do better than this.

Summer day beer, cos it goes down like caramelly, pleasantly bitter water with a creamy head. Pleasant enough ’smooth’ can, perfect for a hot afternoon in the shade.

spporras (259) - FINLAND - MAY 28, 2007
(Draught-flow can BBE 10/2007; Thanks Rich!) Aroma of hops and fruits with a hint of roasted malt. Amber colour, clear and large, creamy, thick, lasting, white head with excellent lacing. Mild flavour of caramel, fruits, roasted malt and nuts. Creamy, almost flat carbonated, light to medium-bodied and slightly watery palate. 26/05/07

shoestring (344) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - MAY 4, 2007
Nice looker. A bit watery and not much feel in the mouth. Just wanted something else to be there. Thirst quenching on a hot summers day.

downender (7626) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2007
Canned widget beer. Golden coloured with a thick, white head. Slight smell of hops. Taste was subdued and thin, some hops again with, as noted below, a metallic finish. Seriously bland.

oh6gdx (24330) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 7, 2007
Canned (thanks to mabjorks friend for bringing this from the UK). Amber colour, mediumsized white creamy head. Aroma is hops, grass and some slight metallic notes. Flavour is malts, bitter hops and some slight metallic hints.

Can (BB 04/2007)
Pale amber color, creamy off-white head. Sweet, caramelly grassy hoppy aroma. Metallic and nutty flavor and creamy thin mouthfeel. Typical watery nitro/widget ale. Not recommended, not for sauna, not for "sessions".

Let’s see...I first discovered this brew on tap in Dunstable U.K....I was blown away!!! A lighter colored beer that could hold it’s own with the mighty stout! But...after finding it canned in the states I was really let down! My rating it biased...I combined the two experiences! If you are ever in the U.K. Do everything you can to find this beer! In the states....look elsewhere!
