StueyD (1239) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2014
A pale golden yellow coloured beer with a weak white head. A light hoppy aroma, some citrus fruit, then a faint biscuity malt aroma. Dry mouthfeel. A tart hop taste to start, pithy citrus fruit, then a dry biscuity malt flavour. A well balanced bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

johndoughty (4114) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2014
Bottle ( Clear ) Golden with a small head. Slightly fruity with a sharp bitter edge. Nothing going for it at all. No doubt it might be rolled out for the 2014 World Cup. Please don’t bother.

berkshirejohn (4679) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2012
50cl bottle from Lidl, stated ABV 3.8%. Straw with a billowing off-white head; aroma of somewhat tired malts and English hops; soft with straightforward caramel malt flavours; and with a dash of hops gives a slight spice to the finish. Not bad for a bargain basement beer.
