50cl can thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - golden amber with a decent head. Nose - light herb and custard notes Taste - dry malty; toffee and carbonation. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a dry finish. Overall - decent considering the crap appearance and general low expectations.

440 ml can from Sainsbury supermarket in Sheffield. Pours amber with small white head. Smell is sweet malty. Taste is sweet malty with a slightly bitter finish. Semi swee with low carbonation and low bitterness. OK considering it’s cheap and only 3 %.

MrBlueSky93 (500) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2015
Can from Sainsbury’s. Just testing the Sainsbury’s range at the moment. Copper coloured with a touch of orange too. Aroma of malts, touch of metallic. Taste of basic malts, with metallic, noticed a bit of honey/sweetness at the start also. Satisfying, but at the low end of the beer quality scale!

zacgillbanks (3184) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2014
Golden coloured with a toffee and malty flavour, a slightly thin body followed by a roasted bitterness on the finish. Pretty good for a low ABV beer.

ManVsBeer (5832) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Golden, no head. Not much aroma but has a pleasant smoothness and a light small milky-bitterness that appeals.

tommann (3004) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2011
440ml can. Pours caramel with a medium head. Aroma is dusty, bready boiled sweet malt. Taste is a bit watery, some boiled sweet fruit and caramel malt. Quite full in the mouth for the low strength.
