berkshirejohn (5827) - 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.

sm89walt (1932) - 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.

gegwilson (2864) - 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.

tommann (3240) - 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.

leaparsons (9605) - Wigston, 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.

The_Quaffer (7) - - AUG 13, 2013 does not count
Got 2 600ml bottles for 2 pound in home bargains. Thought it was a steal, but i know now why they are so cheap. Sickly sweet fizzy tastleless lager. Ripper off ripper (in an Aussie accent)

kwik-lime (1641) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2013
Corny but relatively clean tasting lager with a sweet finish. Just about bearable if hardly worthy of its premium marketing tag.

Bov (11689) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 18, 2015
courtesy of Mich Gfeller - bright golden beer with a little foam left; very shy nose with light papery tones; fizzy, quite harsh palate and thin-bodied; light buttery and bitter corny and papery finish - next one please

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, 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.
