Looks like a normal golden piss coloured larger. Smells wheaty. Clear rice taste with barley tones and malt finish. Refreshing and deceptively strong.

flying_pig (1059) - SCOTLAND - DEC 15, 2014
750ml bottle as a gift, purchased in Morrisons Supermarket, Glasgow:
I wasn’t quick sure about this one at all really, on the one hand it was quick strong and fairly basic but on the other it was easy to drink despite the strength and seemed better than what you usually get from an imperial pilsner, it wasn’t great but it was certainly a decent effort. I’m not entirely sure it’s a beer I’m realistically likely to pick up again but it is another off the 1001 list and I did manage to finish it easily enough.

wimpyjoe (5090) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle from Morrisons. Given the powerful name and elaborate bottle I expected better than the bland tasting slightly dry lager that’s clearly stronger than but perhaps lesser than regular cobra. Has a weak pale golden appearance with a small bubbly head that disappears fast. Aroma is slightly sweet.

edsspoon (654) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2014
Big 750ml bottle - pours hazy straw colour with a big bubbly head which gradually fades away. Aroma of fruits, malts and alcohol. Some acidity and a hint of banana. Taste is malts, mild bitterness, some fruits, banana and bubblegum. Light body, light carbonation. I spent £5 or so on this and it was definitely not worth it - especially when I discovered it was infact brewed in Burton-on-Trent - it travelled much further to get to the distributor than it would have to send it straight to my house.

SarkyNorthener (2622) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle from morrisons. Hazy yellow beer with small head and lively carbonation. Aroma of sweet grain and a little spice. Taste is sweetish malts, cereal grain, some spice and a little alcohol warmth. Ok beer.
