jjsint (1462) - Ely, 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

AshtonMcCobb (4074) - 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 (3500) - 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’.

Desverger (4349) - 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)

harrisoni (15319) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2013
On tap at The Chandos. Pale gold lasting white head. It’s not horrible is a shocker. Even some lemon. Actually I like it. Light hoppy and zesty. Good.
