imdownthepub (10517) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2005
Bottled, pasteurised, 660ml. Gold colour with fast disapearing white bubbly head. A hot baking day at work, why not go home to a big bottle of cold lager? I’ll tell you why, this stuff is not very good. Sweet and soapy I would describe it as, like British pub lager. This is the sort of beer that will get Belgium a bad name.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Clear straw appearance. Malty, baked cereal aroma. Malty front, dry grainy undertones. Dryness makes it drinkable.

DanielBrown (3868) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2004
Bottle from Metro Wines, Syston, Leicester. A mysterious item - with only an importer listed - no brewer or any information... Smells nice - quite dry and salty. Unfortunately the aroma is not a good indicator: it does not taste too good. Thin, one-dimensional and heavily metallic. It finishes like you're licking a stone fireplace. Zzzzz

TC2642 (265) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2003
Nice hoppy aroma and taste. Usual style larger, better than Stella and cheaper too, all in all not bad.

RobBestwick (590) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 28, 2003
crisp hoppy aroma, standard lager appearance, sharp hoppy flavour, a reasonable and refreshing lager.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
rauchbier (3620) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2003
Bottled. Pale gold colour, good lasting thin white head and moderate condition. Some hop and malt aromas, thin and malty in the the mouth and short and chalky in the finish with traces of hop bitterness.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2003
Good fresh crisp pils like aroma. Malty almosy honey like flavour with a bitter dry hop finish. An enjoyaable lager, great for those long summer nights, good value but nothing more.
