UPDATED: JUN 17, 2013 Co-op bottle (as Gold Miner). A re-rate. Latest bottle is very disappointing. Yeasty and metallic, slightly smoky with a harsh palate and lacking any other discernible flavours. Personally, I think there’s an infection here.....

50 cl bottle, Sheffield, UK. Slightly browned golden colour, soapy looking head. Citrus and floral aroma, a bit watery on the palate. Some bitterness comes through, with very faint herbal character. Not amazing, perhaps not as bad as the person rating before me thought.

This is one of the worst beers I’ve ever tasted. Absolutely hand on heart, the only thing I can say smells like this beer is vomit. The taste is barely better.
