pivnizub (10184) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 3, 2013
Can (thanks to the Lake of Constance!): Clear, light amber coloured, stable small white head, mineralic-metallic nose with some fruity malt underneath; light sweet-bitter flavour, light bodied to watery; short and thin malty-fruity finish with a discreet bitterness. Not a really necessary brew...

orange, sparkling, frothy, slick feel, average carbonation, astringent, Sine the 2011 tax changes made 2.8% beer cheaper there’ve been quite a few entrants into this new beer category. Of all them the one that stands out is Cains Calcutta Pale Ale. It is a refreshing enjoyable drink that is great value.

Copper golden ale, no head. Some aroma but very little taste or flavour, but a slight smoothness.

SilkTork (5565) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2012
440ml can from Tesco. Attractive design on the can with an image of an Indian elephant carrying hops in his trunk. Thin toffee taste, slightly metallic, with a slight dusting of hops in the finish. This is a drinkable beer. Cheap as chips, and low abv. Knock ’em back.

zacgillbanks (4545) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2012
Can from Tesco, Hexham. Unusually copper coloured (for a pale ale) with creamy red fruity and burnt toffee flavours and a slight roasted finish. Very good considering its low ABV.
