UPDATED: OCT 20, 2016 Well, that?s not great, in fact it?s rather bad but not especially outrageous. Average lager only useful during a warm afternoon, ?cause beside that, this beer is neither pleasant to drink or able to get you drunk. Very basic taste like hundreds of other cheap lagers, and LOL at the "amber nectar" mention, commercial bullshit as usual. Disappointing and I was not expecting much. PARTIALLY APPROVED BY TAVERNY?S BLACK METAL CREW!

Can at Tenzing Drive house clearance ...vintage 2013 some kind of .rar 1888 (presume 125 aanniversary spcial) Ltd Ed can - this was the highlight ! Golden with a well appointed white cap. Nose is pale malts, grains, cereal. Taste is papery, grains, light floral notes, straw, faint bread. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light bitter close. Par for style.

Can. Basic mass produced lager, not offensive, simple taste and flavours. Quenched my thirst on a hot day.

Kullankeltainen olut kohtalaisella, kivasti pitsiä jättävällä valkoisella vaahdolla. Tuoksu maltainen ja yllättävän tunkkainen. Suorastaa epämiellyttävä. Maku petraa selvästi tuoksusta ollen aavistuksen makea ja maltainen, mutta ei juuri muuta. Normilagereiden metallisuus puuttuu, mistä plussaa.

Thin light lager, standard american lager. Clean and crisp, but still not enough flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

teorn88 (6727) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2016
Keg at BST Festival, Hyde Park. It pours a clean golden color with a small white head. Aroma is dry grainy and lightly grassy with notes of straw and starch. Taste is also dry crispy and lightly sweet with some starch, grass and straw. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, decent

Much like a light lager, very bitter in taste, nothing special about the beer, it is just beer bad

Tap. Jasnozlote piana biala mala. Wodniste o niklym chmielowym aromacie. Kiepskie. Z puszki smakuje jeszcze gorzej
