wimpyjoe (3587) - 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 (2060) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 18, 2013
For the sake of the social interaction just numeral ratings and/or some highlighted attributes. Another Crap

Koelschtrinker (9998) - 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 (7996) - 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 (1746) - Walsall (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 (5110) - 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

tommann (2633) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2011
440ml can. Pours dark orange with a large, frothy head. Aroma is caramel and boiled sweets. Taste is a bit grainy, watery but not that bad. Little boiled sweets on the finish. Good mouth feel for the strength.

berkshirejohn (4406) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 9, 2011
440ml can. Golden amber with a fast fading white head; caramel malt aroma; thin caramel malt flavour with some damp cardboard to finish. Not great, but what do you expect for 25p a can?
