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 (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.

leaparsons (9100) - 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.

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 (1555) - 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 (10913) - 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

BlackHaddock (5186) - 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!

rlgk (15303) - Göteborg, 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.
