downender (7960) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2016
On tap at the Robert Raikes, Gloucester 9/8/2016. Gluggable low strength lager, with a sweet, malty edge, touch of lemon and decently bitter finish. Fine.

Leighton (18719) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2016
Draft at the Anchor Tap - Tower Brisge, London. Pours clear, pale yellow, highly effervescent with a dense, creamy and purely white head. The aroma holds dry cereal, mild straw, pale bread. Light sweet flavour with more basic cereal grains, white bread, hay, minimal bitterness. Light bodied with average to lively carbonation. More simple pale bread and cereal on the finish, straw, mellow grains. Overall, it’s a quite relaxed, mellow and drinkable pale lager. And at this low ABV it’s the kind of thing you could sink a lot of. Enjoyable and very drinkable.

Martinus (4538) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2015
Golden colour, white head. Malty aroma, herbal hops, straw, grass. Sweet malty flavour, light sour malts, hint of hops. Sweet finish, nuts. Not bad for a light lager.

jjsint (2377) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2015
On tap at Chandos, near Trafalgar Square. Straw, clear, with some forced carbonation coming through. Lemon/pear scent with a grainy note. Taste is slight, with sweet citrus and a short finish. Weak body but not as bad as you’d think. Refreshing and surprisingly decent for a low-strength lager.

Only 2.8% so good for all afternoon summer drinking. Very pale blonde, fizzy, not unpleasant. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

allmyvinyl (9562) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 5, 2015
Keg at the Golden Ball, Scarborough. Pours clear pale gold with a thin bubbly white head. Aromas of sweetcorn, white sugar. Taste is more corn. Astringent finish. Pish.

AshtonMcCobb (5382) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 31, 2014
On tap at the Swan and Cygnets in Durham. Appearance - golden with loads of carbonation than a nice head. Nose - slight sulphur or flatulence note. Then sweetcorn. Taste - light citrus and a touch if metal and herbs on the finish. Palate - light bodied with a thin body and a fairly refreshing finish. Overall - difficult to produce something tasty at this ABV.

The_Osprey (6600) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2014
Keg at Fitzroy Tavern. Pale yellow, lightly sparkling, clear, small white head. Body is light, soft carbonation, foamy. Taste is very light, some floral notes but pretty metallic. Not as good as the impressive ’Pure Brewed Organic’.

Japalo (1841) - DENMARK - OCT 12, 2014

Desverger (8696) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2014
Tap@Princess Louise, London (RBESG 10/08/2014) - pale golden pour with white head. Aroma and taste is grassy and light hoppy, straw, splash of citrus lemon on the palate, crisp pale malts. (Used to drink this in the Chandos allot years back when it went 2.8%, and its still a decent quaffable low abv lager)
