yngwie (13617) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2010
Can, courtesy of fonefan. A more or less clear one, pale golden in color and with a small, white head. Fruity, citrusy and grainy nose. Thin on the palate, semi-dry. Grainy and fruity flavor lacking on most things, bitterness included. Short finish, very short. A real waste of ingredients. 101009

DanielBrown (3825) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2010
Drunk on the train to Liverpool for Steve’s birthday (from a can). Lovely and cheap, but not lovely generally. As weak as whatnot with all the flavour and fragrance of a ghost. Not horrible, just weak and dull.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2010
This is what one would expect for a cheap can of 2% lager in a supermarket’s "basic" range. Yes, it’s very watery, with a slightly cereal, dirty dishwater flavour. But it can be drunk. And you can use it to brush your teeth.

Canned (in 2007 or 2008)@Chris O. thanks to harrisoni for bringing this to chriso’s pre-gbbf tasting 2% alcohol, notes say Sainbury’s Lager. Pale golden colour, small white head. Aroma is malts, some grainy and slightly metallic notes in thhe aroma. Flavour is being quite much the same. Actually not totally horrible brew, but quite darn close to it
