Bottled, pasteyrised, 330ml. From Taste Buds, Adderbury, Oxon. Yellow straw colour, carbonated with white head. Thin light lager with little flavour to discover, there is a cardboardy malt, crispish I suppose, with a sharp chemical bitterness. Not good at all.

MacAuslan version: Yellow fizzy beer.Light grassy nose, with a little skunk making its dirty business. Crisp malt with not much hops. The body is mearily OK. Better to drink this at close to freezng temperature, like they do in Acadia.

Drake (10518) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 26, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Farm Fresh in Virginia Beach, VA. Pours a clear golden color with a thin head. Poor head retention and lacing. Huge skunk in the aroma along with sweet corn. Taste is corn, sweet malts, a bit of skunk. No bitterness as the dcescription claims. Thin. Watery. Nothing to see here.
