2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A Sim rate (cask at the Craft): This beer tastes just like the shandies my grandad used to make us as kids - back when it felt naughty to drink even a minute amount of alcohol. He used to shop at this place called "Ed" (a bit like the present-day Lidl) which everyone in the town annoyingly referred to as "Ed’s". Everything was cheap and random. He bought bitter one case at a time, served in a plain, generic can. To make the shandy, "Ed" lemonade was used, comparable to the one you can find in the Tesco value range. So yes, that is this beer.
