AshtonMcCobb (3908) - 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 (3215) - 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 íPure Brewed Organicí.

Desverger (3832) - 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)

Ferris (7657) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2014
Draft - Light biscuit and earthy hops. Clear gold with a nice white head. Grainy with some pale malts. Nice and flavorful.

harrisoni (15041) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2013
On tap at The Chandos. Pale gold lasting white head. Itís not horrible is a shocker. Even some lemon. Actually I like it. Light hoppy and zesty. Good.

stravale (2490) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUN 5, 2013
Keg @ DooíCot Edinburgh [280513]
Very light blonde, fizzy white head, lots of streaming carb, some lacing
Aroma - very light pale malts, hint of corn, very little aroma
Taste - Thin light corn malts, hint of cereal hop, slight buttery slickness, watery, no nasty off flavours but still bland
Palate - High carb, light body, slightly oily. Finish - hmm...cold and fizzy
Overall - I thought this was going to be rubbish - it wasnít too bad as a weak lager. Iíd certainly drink it over Carlsberg or Fosterís as it didnít taste terrible - just wasnít much going on at all

Old Anchor, Tower Bridge. Bright clear pale gold beer. Tiny white head. Palate is light and crisp. Surprisingly flavourful for itís abv and colour. Light caraway creamy malt. Mild tang and a trace of citrus. Semi dry finish with minerals. Not bad at all!
