COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For all of those who are prone to a bit of bullshitting every now and then, we offer this traditional pale straw colured bitter. We would like to dedicate this edition to politicians from every party. From what we can gather they are all full of shit!

50cl bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - golden with a head that is there and then gone while you turn around to have a quick word with someone. Nose - sweet malt, maybe butterscotch, lemon maybe. Taste - more sweet malt and lemon which finishes more like lemonade. Definitely reminiscent of a shandy. Palate - light bodied with a thin texture and a finish that is short and sweet (which isnít a good think in this style) Overall - appropriately named, methinks!

500ml bottle from the brewery online shop. Terrible label, definitely a theme with these guys. Pours clear gold, short-lived white head. Aromas of lemon and butterscotch, soapy, pale malt. Taste is sweet, shandy edge. Sticky finish. Not great. Bull shit by name...

HampshirePhil (156) - Portsmouth/London, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2014
500ml bottle - Weak bland taste which left a distinctly odd after taste in the mouth by the next morning. Canít say much if anything positive about it. Including itís ridiculously stupid name aimed at selling a normally poor beer.

Hazy amber beer, tiny white head. Dry palate. Odd malt - slightly soapy. Trace of orange hop with insipid bitterness. Dry finish with a skewed bitterish aftertaste. Poor!

From bottle. Clear golden colour with a thin white head. Sweet honey like aroma. Very thin texture and body. Very poor bitter. More like a pale.
