An everyday kind of drink, which you can buy at the supermarket for a very reasonable price, and drink quietly at home for an honest moment of enjoyment. Not the best beer in the world, but easily among the very realiable products among those turned out for the mass market.

Icedwarf (689) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - FEB 18, 2014
Eenvoudig bier met weinig smaak. Blijft ook niet lang hangen. Kleur is mooi roze-rood.

hopscotch (10077) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2014
(Epcot Center – Rose & Crown) Nitro… Clear amber ale with a large, creamy, white head. Lasting retention. The aroma is soapy and grainy – toasted barley. Medium-bodied and creamy with feather-soft carbonation. The flavor leans bitter and toasty with a mild apple ester. Finishes crisp with a snappy hop jolt. Disney really knows how to keep those taps and lines clean.

fabioanselmo (185) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - JAN 12, 2014
Uma cerveja regular com espuma cremosa! Um leve amargor, mas nada que atrapalhe sua leveza. Por ter uma abelhinha no rótulo, esperava algo doce, mas não. Sabores e aromas bem característicos, sem grandes notas transcendentais. Mas difere-se das comerciais pela cremosidade.

Gurthnar (2935) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 30, 2013
Can. Aroma mild. Mushrooms, rotting ground. Clear golden colour. Taste is plain bitter. Body thin, watery. Hoppy earthy flavour. Poorly drinkable. Not recommended.

When available on draught, this is one of my all time favorites. Smooth taste and finish. I could drink several of these in one sitting (and have done it).

boto (1953) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - AUG 28, 2013
Draught @ Flanagan’s Bermuda: This one pours a clear, light coppery color. There was a finger of a creamy, dense white head. It has a lighter aroma. Light caramel malts, some earthy and floral hops. Taste is good, but definitely on the lighter side. Malty, and a touch sweet. Some earthy and biscuit notes.

On tap at the white lion in Tulsa. Decent drinkable bitter though as with most very little flavor or character.

pdx77 (1477) - Oregon, USA - AUG 22, 2013
On nitro at Maher’s. Golden color with a lot of creamy head. Aroma is fairly weak, with hints of biscuit, malt, and iron. Taste is sweet biscuit, grass and cream soda. Really smooth finish, but weak-bodied overall.
