Leighton (10698) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2012
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a small, white foam head. Some lightly sugary pale malts in the nose, subtle dough, straw. Light sweet flavor, mellow straw bitterness, a bit more light dough malts. Light bodied with average carbonation. Crisp, clean finish with a very restrained character overall, just nips of dry straw and faint, white sugar and dough. Quite a nice little pale lager, this. Exactly what I want after a strenuous gym session.

rlgk (10257) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle at Chriso’s tasting in London, 121230. Pale yellow beer with a small but lasting white head. Vegetable and cardboard aroma, malty, bready, grainy notes. Cardboard flavor, watery, malty, bready, dough notes. Really thin.

maeib (8640) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2012
Bottled. A golden beer with a nice white head. A sweet cereally aroma with sweetcorn. tastes similar. Boiled sweetcorn the dominant impression. A short bitter finish. Mass produced nonsense. Watery.

leaparsons (8032) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle. Pale gold with a thin foam. Aromas are caramel and butter with mellow lemon. Some cardboard with soda water. Flavours are light lemon with butter and cereal grain. As expected.

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2012
300ml. Eponymous with a slim fine collar. Lemon, almond, slight pine aroma...beneath the regurgitated buck’s fizz. Thick, snot-laden palate with notes of glue, lemon and card spread with dog food. Not a personal favourite.

SilkTork (5188) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2012
300ml clear glass bottle. Yellowish appearance. Warm, damp straw aroma. Soapy, lemony flavour. Little hop bitterness or aroma - saccharine bitterness. Soft, almost creamy/soapy carbonation, but still unsettles the stomach and creates wind. Grainy, cereal notes. There’s little to commend this. But it is drinkable.

berkshirejohn (4443) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2011
300ml bottle. Pale straw with a rapidly diminishing white head; a rather odd aroma - furniture polish and lemon sherbert perhaps; watery with a weak malt flavour; and just a trace of hops in the finish. Decidedly odd.

wimpyjoe (3722) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2014
Bottle. A slight improvement on normal Fosters, but mainly a drab effort. Golden with a medium sweetness and easy to drink.

BlackHaddock (3605) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2012
Third and final beer in my 28th September 2012 ’Dodgy Lager tasting evening’. 300ml Clear bottle: best before the end of Mar 2013. Dry, bitter, metallic, boring and lager looking: no smell. The worst of the pilsner/lagers I had during the tasting; I must thank my daughter for finding such delights for me (this and one each from the cheap German based supermarkets Aldi and Lidl). She tries to find beers I’ve never reviewed before, but sometimes she does things like this, just to test my love!
