50cl can thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - amber with a nice fluffy head. Nose - light ginger biscuit. So far so good, but light cardboard smell just lurking there. Taste - a suggestion of the toffee and biscuits and then it’s suddenly gone. Palate - light bodied and then almost finished before you’ve swallowed it. Overall - if I did adhere to some sort of maximum number of beers per day or week, this certainly wouldn’t count.

440ml can from Sainsbury. Pours clear amber with a short-lived white head. Aromas of malt, wort. Taste is sweet, thin finish

ManVsBeer (5971) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2013
Golden with no head. A dour tasteless brew with a small sweetness rather than any real bitterness. Malt aroma.

Brandman (2460) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2013
For the sake of the social interaction just numeral ratings and/or some highlighted attributes. Another Crap

Koelschtrinker (13122) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 22, 2013
Wässrig bitterer Antrunk, zum Ende trockener werdend. Laff, sehr langweilig. Trocken bitteres Ende ohne wirkliche Aromen. 9/6/7/5/5/5

leaparsons (8916) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2012
Can. Hazy gold with a thin head. Aromas are grain and soap with light nuttiness. Caramel with hints of stewed apple. Flavours are slightly sweet nutty grain with soap and lots of carbonation. Quite a soda water character. Not much going on in the finish. Mediocre.

SarkyNorthener (3092) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2012
I bought these to compare to other supermarket basic bitters, it wouldn’t be fair to compare to other bitters and I have to say it is the worst one I have tried. They promote it as tasting a little less bitter. Well I couldn’t taste anything.

deanso (6742) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2012
99p for 4 cans from Sainsburys. Thin white head which disappears quickly. Clear amber pour. Not bad especially for the price
