SilkTork (5450) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, 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 (5396) - 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.

BlackHaddock (5194) - 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!

The_Osprey (4210) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2015
After a long search, I’ve finally harpooned this whale. 300ml clear bottle, 4.8%, BB June 2015. Pale orange, clear, sparkling, small foamy white head, full lacing. Aroma is light, corny, some pencil shavings. Body is light, foamy, tingly carbonation. Taste is very light - so light that I can taste the booze. A little dusty. Dry and refreshing finish. Watery and plain, but no bad flavours at all. A fine pale lager, better than expected. Can see why people would like it.

rauchbier (3700) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2011
Bottle, from Morrisons Scunthorpe. Gold, thin shortlived white head and moderate condition. Low estery malt in the nose, thin and quite dry in the mouth with a quickly disappearing fruitiness, short dry finish.

SarkyNorthener (3347) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2013
Bottle. Yellow beer with medium fright head. Sweet malts and corn. Not good.

tommann (3053) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2011
300ml bottle. Pours gold with a large head. Aroma is corn and a weird metallic lemon. Metallic twang is there too. Taste is quite like lemon shandy. Short finish. Nothing smart about this.

gegwilson (2379) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2015
Drank straight from the bottle at the Bansdale darts tournament - a night when I should have taken more beer. Cadged a bottle of this from Mark B to avoid having to drink Budweiser which was the only other beer on offer. This was better, but was still pretty bad.

sm89walt (1838) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 22, 2012
300ml bottle. A clear, pale gold colour with a fine ring of loose white foam on the pour. An all-round grain, corn and sweet pale malt profile. Very little bitter presence finishing soft & sweet. Crisp, soft to medium carbonation, light in body & refreshing on the palate but relatively characterless.
