Pretty good off the tap, after a guiness. Tastes almost sour in a bottle

A very, very ordinary beer. Nowhere near woth the price tag. That said, better than Bud

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2003 Maybe it was not freah but it was a bit skunky and bitter . For bitter beer lovers.

Crisp, simple lager. Relatively smooth with little aftertaste. Try it as a half and half with Guinness.

Smells a bit stale even when it’s fresh from tap. Tastes a bit weak but refreshing.

This beer lacks any real flavour, even for a lager. After my first couple of sips, I thought that the bar had watered it down. I’ve tried it again since - no difference. I prefer lagers with a little more body.

Good bitterness but a bit sour aftertaste.

Re-rated. I’m not sure quite sure what I ever saw in this beer. It has to have changed somewhat dramatically, or I have...and seeing as how I’m one of those who likes almost everything...I dunno. Either way, this is a very non-special lager. Totally ordinary in basically every way. Oh, well. There’s lots more to choose from...
