SarkyNorthener (1956) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Can from sainsburys. Golden beer with medium frothy head. Aroma of malts. Taste is pale malts and a touch of hops. Very watery. Crap.

wimpyjoe (3908) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2014
Soulless, tasteless yellow stuff. No head. Easily the worst of all supermarket own brand lagers I’ve tasted.

Koelschtrinker (10676) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 21, 2013
Wässriger Geschmack, der von Beginn bis Ende durchhält. Mild getreidig, etwas muffig. Ein unendlich langweiliges Bier. 11/5/7/5/3/4

wheresthepath (1532) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2013
[440ml can from Sainsburys, from a four-pack for £1 that my wife bought to make bread] Pungent passion fruit aroma with loads of... oh, hang about, that must be a different beer. This one pours pale gold with a swiftly-diminishing white head. Very thin mouthfeel with aggressive carbonation. There’s a hint of lemon and a hint of wheatabix on the nose, but this is overwhelmed by metals. When drinking it the overwhelming impression is of dusty sparkling water. As others have said it’s not especially horrible, but it is barely beer. It would make for a cheap alternative for sparkling water, I guess, but I can’t see any other reason why anone would buy it. Oddly comforting to have a cack beer once in a while though, makes you appreciate the good ones.

deanso (5261) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 10, 2012
50cl can from sainsburys. Can’t see the head but I guess it has a thin white head. Golden pale pour. Not bad for a cheap 2% lager.

worldbeertaste (1637) - AUSTRIA - DEC 10, 2011
Gold colour with a bubbly white head. Strange sulfur cardboard, malt smell that seems common for canned drinks. Carbonated fizzy body. Sweetish start, Straw, wheat, barley with a horrible bial dry aftertaste.
