Quack-Duck (7778) - Down South, - AUG 11, 2012
Bottle from Tesco Exmouth. Clear yellow, mid-sized head. Malt flavours dominate, with some shy but quite ok hop flavours in the finish. Easy-drinking lightweight.

Theydon_Bois (7944) - 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 (468) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Very thin and watery. Delicate carbonation and only a hint of citric hop sweetness.

SarkyNorthener (1740) - Walsall (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 (1480) - 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 (164) - 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 (2988) - 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 (441) - 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.

olliejobbins (746) - Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2013
500ml bottle. pours clear amber with white head that doesn’t last. aroma is of wet grass, fairy liquid and some hops perhaps. taste is not great. very watery and mainly get wet grass with little to no hops.

BlackHaddock (3514) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2013
500ml bottle: BBD 30 June 2014. Poured into two old ’Home Ales’ countryman half pint tankards, as my wife had half of the bottle on a hot and sunny 26 Aug 2013 in our back garden. Pleasantly surprised at the quality and depth of flavour for such a weak and cheap beer. Looked fine in the glasses: deep old golden colour, clear and tidy, on top a thin, but full head of white bubbles. Malts lead the way in both the aroma and taste with the hops arriving later in the mouth. More sweet than bitter, more thin bodied than heavy. For a 2.8% ABV beer I thought it OK and very refreshing in the sun.

imdownthepub (10021) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2013
Bottled, 500ml pasteurised from Sainsbury’s in Banbury. Gold with white head. Quite a thin, simple, sweetish beer, fruity light hop, short on the palate, almost no follow through. Nothing special.
