The ultimate tasteless session lager. At 2.6% in such a small bottle it’s a good study/work beer. I really like the small bottles and a 10 pack goes for pretty cheap. Tastes fine out of the bottle and the hop taste is there like they say it is.

Origin: Bottle. Vessel: Bottle. Supplier: Gift (Romsey). Slight grainy nose. Bland taste with no discernable flavours. High carbonation. Cold and thirst quenching but nothing more.

The_Osprey (5729) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2015
I had seven 25cl ’stubbies’ at a friend’s house. 2.6%. Clear orange amber, lightly sparkling, decent foamy white head. Body is light, soft carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is grainy, soft bitterness. Not the best by any standards, although the flavour is pretty solid. I’m a little surprised by the ultra-low scores this has attracted so far. Most off-licence beers are worse than this.

not a great beer but if you are having people over for a bbq or something and they haven’t got a clue about beer then this might be the one you want

Little Green Bottle from Sainsbury’s, Halifax. Pale golden, no head. As a lager it has a decent texture and mouthfeel, but there’s just no taste or flavour to it.

zacgillbanks (4218) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle from Sainsburys, Team Valley, Gateshead. Golden coloured with a rapidly disappearing head. Little fizz with a sugary toffee flavour, a thin watery body followed by a slight bitter finish. Pretty poor.

JorgeLee (1692) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle, presumably from Sainsburys, brought by guests to the house. Those small stubby bottles remind me of teenage drinking, lukewarm lager, corny, skunky, chemically. And that’s pretty much what we have here, thin as well at only 2.8%, some attempt at pils-style hopping but kind of harsh and skunky, grim aftertaste. Really not good - what to do with the remaining bottles left festering in the fridge???

kwik-lime (1647) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2014
A couple of stubbies a barbecue. To be fair I couldn’t tell how low the ABV was and there’s a reasonable hop character about it. Somewhat corny though and certainly boring.

Bog standard session lager (biere de table??). That said, it does bog standard well without excessive acidity that you sometimes get this end of the spectrum. It’s cheap, inoffensive, drinkable and refreshing which has a place away from the pretence of craft lager. Sometimes simple is best.

Little bottle some left in the fridge in the place we were staying. You bastard! I had to drink it! Aroma is dusty metal, corn, grass. Flavour is malty, grainy, suppose I’ve had worse.
