worldbeertaste (1779) - West Midlands, - OCT 24, 2012
Clear gold with a lasting, creamy white lacy head. Smells of corn, malt, cereal, metal and sulphur. Light thin body with lively carbonation. Lots of adjuncts. Tastes like grass and water, barley and syrup. Not much on flavour or finish. Mostly cardboard water. Its not offensive because thereís nothing here.

Lebo88 (195) - POLAND - OCT 18, 2015
Can 500 ml. Weak and tasteless lager exactly as one would expect. Itís high drinkability is the only positive thing about the beer.

LazyPyro (177) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2015
Surprisingly popular here in the UK, not sure why. Overall this seemed weak and watery, with a slightly metallic/bitter finish to it. Cheap beer for students. Wouldnít want to drink this again unless there was nothing else available. (old rating, 2007)

Towey1989 (962) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2015
Keg at The Black Swan, Leek. A clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of sweet grain, some lemon, slight bread and grassy hops. Taste of grain, slight cardboard, subtle grassy hops and a little bread. Light bodied and a fizzy texture. A dry, cardboard finish. This crap got worse and worse. Grainy, watery and horrible cardboard. Itíll have to do.

Clear golden color with an ok white head. Malty and faint citric aroma. Medium body and an ok carbonation. Moderate sweet and an ok bitterness. A quite mild lager with a dominating mild malty flavor. Faint citric. Thirst quencher.
