Tinny. Amber in colour with an off-white head. Aromas are caramel malts with some light berry notes. Flavours are caramel and toffee malts but without much character. Some fruitiness helps. But overall this is pretty dull.

Can. Had this courtesy of a friend whilst at Towersey Festival, even though I’ve had this before it was a bit of a blast from the past, Sainsburys have been churning this one out for years now. Some fruit on the nose, smells and tastes a little bit better than the normal stuff, still a bit metallicy but I’ve never been keen on beers in cans.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Big offwhite lasting head. Orange body with carbonation. Vague straw and metal aroma with perfumy notes. Dry watery perfumy caramel and malts taste; quite artificial. Mild and mellow, but mouthfeel is sharpish. No aftertaste. Boring, not very good. (0.5l can from Sainsbury’s.)

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can (500ml). Not much to say - odd light yellow colour for a bitter, cheap/sweet aroma, light characterless bitterness. The taste - well, uh, sweet, slightly dry, incredibly light, slight tinny aftertaste - half-decent and more or less thirst-quenching. Nothing much to report.

UPDATED: FEB 2, 2014 Not as bad as you might expect from a supermarket own brand. Copper with very little head on it but it has a smooth texture with light toffee notes. Slightly sweet.

Aroma is stronger than the regual parkin’s, grassy hops, though the nitro head is hard to pull to much from. Taste is also very similar with a agaoin grassy malty caramel taste with a more bitter finish. This however makes it slighty not as easy to drink, by this i mean u couldnt drink the can in one drink as easily, hehe. Nothign special but again better than expected.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2006 Dec, 2004 Can. Slightly more fruity than the 3% regular Parkins. Not a great beer, but drinkable. [2.2]
Dec, 2006 Can. Inoffensive. Softly fruity. Mild hops. A soft, pleasant beer of moderate character. [2.3]
