Can. Straw, white head. Nose is earth, metal, rotten corn. Taste is less offensive. Sweet corn, hay, straw, grass. Better than the American BMC’s, in my opinion.

foxo82 (683) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2012
On tap at Gemini restaurant, Tamworth. Slightly surprising - this actually looked appetising with a good sized, long-lasting head and lacing. The best compliment I can give this is it didn’t do anything to offend me: the aroma - what little there was of it - was slightly metallic yeast without any nasty skunkiness; the taste was mildly bitter and a bit watery but drinkable, lacking any artificial sweetness that plagues so many of this style; and the mouthfeel was...ok. This is certainly much better than the Export which admittedly isn’t much of a yardstick. Not awful but very plain.

Probably the worst draught lager in the world. 3.8%? You may as well drink pish. An affront to humanity.

This beer tasted like Miller Lite Goes International. We did not enjoy it. It tasted generic and cheap. Nothing special.

Low quality lager. Has all the standard pale lager traits: fizzy, flavourless and weak.

Frenger (367) - Derby, Alabama, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2012
From a can I found in my bands tour van. Tasteless, fizzy, bland, anus, faeces. I hope this is a good review.

Cunningham (4429) - Halden, NORWAY - APR 8, 2012
Yellow colour with a white head. Mild malt and hoppy aroma and flavour. Actually a bit waterish as well.
[Bottle in Liverpool, England]

stravale (2075) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - FEB 22, 2012
Bottle
Very light straw...clear...frothy white head
Aroma - some skunk...light metallic grain...almost nothing on the nose
Taste - light pale malt...corn...light cereal...very weak flavour
Palate - soft carb (out of small bottle)...very thin body...watery. Finish - paper and light sweet cereal
Overall - Almost no aroma and flavour. I can drink this but it’s just coloured bit sweet water.
