oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 2, 2010
Bottled. Golden colour with funny stuff floating around. Small white head. Aroma is cardboard, some grains and mild strange notes of mould. Flavour is quite much the same along with some sight fruity notes as well.

Theydon_Bois (9915) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2012
Bottle at JF tasting, cheers James, not so much part of the tasting but I sniffed out a new rate in the fridge, 25cl stubby listed as 4.8% - 29/12/12. Lightly hazed mid golden with a thin off white head that clears to bubbles at the edge of the glass. Nose is pale malt, grain, light vegetal tones. Taste follows, little else to add! Medium bodied with light spritzy carbonation, some mild bitterness in the finish. Crap !

chriso (7428) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2010
25cl stubby from Sainsburys. Best before 27 December 2007. Consumed in January 2010. Styled as a French beer but actually made in Germany. Gold with some odd floaty bits in suspension. Rather papery aroma. Surprising amount of remaining hop bitterness. Not too compromised by the age. Doubt it would have been much better when fresh.

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2009
Bottle sourced by The Jenners. Pa Jenner was topping his Winter Hop up with it, and I had to look away. Mushy sweetcorn, grass, rubber and almond aroma. Pale pissy fizz with a white rim. Buttery popcorn, hay, maize, hutch. Notes go on a bit of a rant about adjuncts, then I come on RB and find out it’s German. Either a very crap advert for the Reinheitsgebot, or a very good one.

SilkTork (5275) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2006
Stubby green bottle from Sainsbury’s. A clean, refreshing pale lager with sof tbiscuit malt and just enough hops to provide bite and a pleasant finishing bitterness. Not a great beer, but certainly drinkable, and better than the average global pale lager.

wimpyjoe (4424) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle. Golden, next to no head. Bland lager with a soapy texture and taste.

Bullit (4030) - Burgos, SPAIN - APR 23, 2010
Bottle from Sainsburys. Clear light golden colour, small white head. Aroma is grassy, bit metallic. Flavour is grassy, watery, not skunked. Ok drinkable.

tommann (2852) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2013
250ml bottle at 4.8%. Pours pale gold with a medium head. Aroma is grassy and minerally. Taste has a lot of mineral character with a little grass on the finish.

joe19612 (1925) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2008
Bottle 25cl. Pours a good dark golden colour with a thin white head. The aroma is very yeasty. The taste is very clean with a hint of bitterness. The finish is very dry.

markas101 (1898) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 17, 2010
25 cl bottle, Sainsbury’s, Sheffield, UK. Not as pale as I thought it would be for the price. An actual aroma of lager, some sharpness of hops with a peppery sweet finish. Maybe a keeper for really hot summer days.
