Half pint at the Clarendon Arms, Cambridge. The only beer in the pub I’ve yet to tick. To be fair, she is a comely lass: dark yellow, small white head, tempting carbonation - not too much, not too little. And the smell isn’t terrible, there’s just not a lot of it. Taste is a bit blasé but again not terrible, sugary and slightly lemony. Nicely carbonated finish but the alcohol is fairly exposed, even for an ABV this low. Substandard but it’ll do.

invinoveritas (58) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2016
33cl bottle, served cold. Bubbly. Intensely bubbly. Too bubbly to drink comfortably. And not worth any discomfort - pretty boring and watery, though not actively unpleasant apart from the bubbles.

Evilman (31) - Taverny, FRANCE - MAY 12, 2016
It sucks bad, but it’s drinkable. No words necessary, this is a common Lager, a bit lighter than classic Kronenbourg, but still not interesting. DISAPPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW !

ThomasEK (8) - - MAY 12, 2016 does not count
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2016 Meget let aroma. Skummet forsvinder hurtigt. Smagen er frisk, let krydret og mere kompleks end en normal pilsner. En absolut yndling i kategorien håndbajer på dåse.

Demens (126) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 8, 2016
0,5 can. Clear pale yellow colour with quickly disappearing white head. Aroma: Sweet yeasty aroma, a little fruity banana and hiding notes of corn. Taste: Well balanced. Light sweet/bitter/sour taste. None of them are too harsh quite watery but good to drink. Light body with medium carbonation. Short bitter finish. Not spectacular, but good to drink.

Standard pale lager straw gold color pour, with clean grain aromas & taste. Refreshing & par for the style, though more expensive.

bonkiedeaap (578) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2016
Bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis in Utrecht. The beer is golden colored and a small and stable white head, with nice carbonation. The aroma is hoppy and malty, with also tones of grains, bread, yeast and a hint of citrus. The taste is light bodied, light sweet and malty and has some notes of grass and citrus and has further quiet a watery texture. The finish leaves some refreshing notes and a medium bitterness which is long noticable.

Skunk, sour, rotten apple, This cant be beer? It taste so bad that i could not drink it. Worst beer ever. It taste like rotten champagne mixed with beer. Try it and you will hate beer the rest of your life.

It does pour pretty however, the taste is basically if you put a sprite into a Budweiser. It does not have to best smell either.

ffbot (278) - Oakland, California, USA - APR 13, 2016
UPDATED: APR 14, 2016 Pour is an attractive blond with a thin head and damn fine lacing. Smell is skunk, rotten grain, and lots of yeast. Taste is the same, super rotten...was my bottle skunked by sunlight???
