Bottle from sainsburys. Pale golden colour with a thin white head. Slight citus aroma but on the whole dull as is the taste.

Theydon_Bois (9960) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2014
Keg at Lords, I was really pushing the boat out to celebrate Roots Daddy ! 13/06/14. Clear golden amber with a moderate off white head that stays for the show. Nose is bready, pale malts, light fruit rinse, not much depth, inoffensive and forgetabble! Taste cranks up ever so slightly, malt base, fruit notes, bready pangs, light berry fruit, faint caramel. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close with a light fruit rinse. So so keg bitter, as expected, not unpleasant just not a lot doing.

greenmanalishi (483) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Very thin and watery. Delicate carbonation and only a hint of citric hop sweetness.

SarkyNorthener (2396) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle from B&M. Amber beer with small head. Aroma is a little sweet malt. Taste is caramel, sweetish light malt and a dusting of hops. Watery, not good.

dynamiteninja (1591) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
Bottle. Carbonated gold body. Large white head. Nose is initially a whiff of citrus and tropical fruits. The comes boiled vegetables. iron, some dust, wet dog. Bitter. Dry finish.

mighty_meadow (247) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle from Home Bargains. Pours golden with thin head. Aroma pretty non existent. Nothing great in way of flavour as you would maybe expect from a 2.8% ale. Wouldn’t rush to try again but not the worst I have ever tasted and would be a good way to start a long session.

mike_77 (3423) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2013
Golden colour. Thin and watery texture. Light, mild flavour with only a background hint of hop. The idea of these 2.8% beers is very good but need to be backed up by more flavour. It is possible.

ianwelby (546) - SCOTLAND - NOV 3, 2013
Clear golden beer with a foamy head. Faint sweet aroma. Slight hop flavour with a bit of a fruity edge. Finish is slight sickly. It’s not unpleasant just deeply average.
