imdownthepub (10460) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2005
Bottled, 660 ml, Pasteurised. Orange colour with fizzed head. Light lemony lager beer with a heafty CO2 swack, left me burping for hours. Hard to discern flavours in the gassy mass, but what I found wasn’t too bad. OK.

DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2006
Bottle 28/08/2001 Golden coloured in appearance. Some hops present. Nothing by way of flavour here.

marcus (6586) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 6, 2010
Pours amber with a thin off-white head and a subtle toffee aroma. There is a decent caramel malt flavor, with some carbonation and residual bitterness.

SilkTork (5229) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2005
Tesco Biere Speciale. A corn pale lager available in stumpy green bottles. Carbonated. Mushy corn flavours. Not interesting. A cheap lager to wash down food.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2001
A light pilsener.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2005
Bottle - Tesco Biere Speciale. Once warm quite unpleasant - corn and rough finish. When chilled completely unexceptonal but drinkable.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2005
Bottle (Tescos): Clear orange with a fizzy short head. Not much in the nose apart from some stale malts and a bit of tin. Flavour is much the same, though with a slight citrusy twist. Long metallic aftertaste. Boring and thin.

markas101 (1850) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 2, 2011
25 cl bottle, Sheffield, UK. Pale gold, bread and pepper aroma. Quite carbonated, then settles down. Sweet with an underlying syrupiness, then an almost separate pepper bite on the finish. Not bad for cheap.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle: Amber gold with a puffy, white head. Cereals and hay in the aroma. The sweetness and fruitiness of light cherries and toasty notes on the tongue.
