Cans from Lidl. Weak tasting beer but what do you expect from cheap supermarket own brand. Having said that it’s not the worst I have had by a long way

This used to be a very palatable beer until about 5-6 years ago when they cut the strength from 4 to 3.6%. Now it is rather bland and tasteless and hence I don’t buy it anymore.

Can - amber with a fizzy off white head which fades away fairly quickly. Aroma of grass and caramel. Taste is minerally, caramel, grass, earth, medium sweet and a bitter end. Light body, medium carbonation.

Bottle @ Chriso’s pre-GBBF Shindig. Reddish amber pour with a small head. General bread, caramel, apple on the nose. A touch artificial. The taste is quite bready indeed. Maybe a bit of toffee-dipped apple. Medium body, soft carbonation. So forgettable.

As a lover of hoppy, bitter bitters I was somewhat surprised at how pleasant I found this beer. It’s lowish alcohol rating makes it ideal drinking for long barbecue sessions and it has proved to be extremely popular amongst my friends who have varied preferences. The tasting notes already submitted are pretty accurate, in the main, so I will not repeat them but merely state that it is light easy drinking and will not disgrace itself as a party beer. I make a point of keeping a supply for the less serious beer drinkers who call and often get compliments from those who haven’t come across it before.
