Bottle @ The Brun Lea, Burnley. Mid clear red with a thick bubbly head. Has a mild sweet aroma and taste with the tequila et al providing a flavour that’s not overbearing. Has a sticky-sweet texture.

imdownthepub (13246) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 14, 2016
Bottled, 330ml at a Wetherspoons, just a small sample for me. Pink with mo head. There is an astringent perfumed nose leading to an artificial fruity, floral flavour. Pretty disgusting.

ansalon (3002) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2016
Pours clear light red with a medium frothy white head that quickly settles. Aromas of rye bread, raspberry, perfume, artificial fruit flavours, chili. Taste is artificial winegum, booze, raspberry, moldy cellar.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2016 Pours clear red with low light pink head. Aroma has distinct notes of two things; first there is latex, and not just a wee bit of latex, no this smells like I imagine one of those less classy porn stores would smell, complete with the smell of the sad desperation of its patrons; second, there is vomit, as if one of the patrons of the porn establishment threw up just before going inside. This is by far the worst aroma I’ve ever experienced in a beer. Taste is surprisingly good considering the mayhem this "beer" just caused on my nose. Artificial winegums, booze, god this is bad...! Body is light and smooth (?) with I suppose soft carbonation.

I’ve had worse, but not in England. Poured from a bottle. Now I know why they were 2/£5. Apple juice appearance. No discernable aroma but tastes like bad fruit punch.

Spróbować można, jednakże z piwem ma to malo wspólnego. Pachnie i smakuje dziwnie. Jakieś takie kwaśne. Jak lemoniada, goryczki równie dużo.

Can 0,5ltr: Clear red colored softdrink-like beverage taste not bad if you think its that, but somehow its a beer and on this site its kind of bad.
