Got this from the English shop in antwerp. very clear ber, no bubbles @ all. Nice cramy head, thanks to the ball in a can trick. Smell caramel, a little bit of hops and a little bit sweetness.Very soft and easy drinkable beer. The bitter flavor is there, but it is all the flavor you will get. Kinda dissapointed in the beer, is like water with taste :-(

On Tap at Speakers Corner, Browns Bay in Auckland. Golden color with OK head. Not much of an aroma. Mild bitterness with a somewhat thin finish and a hint of lingering wet cardboard. Underwhelming.

A fairly typical nitro bitter. Smooth but fairly watery. Bland but easy to drink. Lacking in flavour and character but not disgusting.

I used to be a big fan of this when I was younger, maybe my palate changed, maybe the recipe changed. It has a sort of bready, malty and slight floral taste - itís very indistinct. I do like the creamy top though.

At the airport hotel after easyJet screwed me over. This was one of two options on the voucher. Canít say it tastes bad, because there is not much there to critic. Lightly flavored water

sarauckelman (420) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2016
Clear amber with thick head. No aroma. Amazingly thin and watery, with water being the predominant flavor, followed by a bit of beer and then a bit of hops. Insipid.

Bland, watery and weak... only to be drunk when nothing else is available anywhere...

Towey1989 (1900) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2016
Keg at The Lion, Stoke-On-Trent. A clear deep golden colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of caramel, bready malts, some metal and slight fruits. Taste of caramel, some bready malts, slight fruits, a little apple and subtle metal. Light bodied but a watery texture. A short, malty bitterness in the finish. Itís a bland, watery draught bitter, I wasnít expecting much.

Cunningham (7055) - Halden, NORWAY - APR 5, 2016
A bit dull pub ale. Anyway easy drinkable and you do not get that drunk ha ha.
Clear deep golden color with a creamy off white head. Ok lacing Down the glass. Medium light body and a soft carbonation. Moderate intensity in the aroma. Tad sweet and a mild bitterness. Caramel malty and some bready notes. A bit waterish actually.
[On tap at Cafe Balzar - Stansted Airport (London), England]
