Thin and watery feeling. Taste reminds me of a mix of market lager and IPA, but is very lame. One of the worst IPA beers I have tasted.

Not great. Taste very artificial. Not a fan, but I’d drink it if I really had to......

Pours a clear amber colour with little carbonation.
Dominant malty aroma, can’t detect much else.
Bready, yeasty flavour, little else.
Goes down smooth, thin bodied.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Rich rusty brown. Thin cream head. Smells coppery and woody with some wheats. Smooth in the mouth, but the taste is a bit "blegh". Copper in the mouth, - dirty pennies soaked in wheatabix water. Needs more bitter hoppiness to really appeal to me as an IPA. And as a bitter, its just a little too unpleasant.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can, 500 ml. Drunk from said can. I remember this pouring a generic amber colour with a fair amount of creamy white head. Aroma of honey, with perhaps a small amount of resinous hop presence in there, but very minimal for something calling itself an IPA. Tastes quite weak and watery, again the main presence being honey, with a little bit of hoppy bitterness on the back end. Very watery mouth feel with minimal carbonation. Quite bland overall but probably one of the better budget beers available, and for a while in my early years of drinking this was my go-to alternative to lager (still is on occasion, usually when there’s nothing better on tap).
