The finest malts and hop varieties were carefully selected to produce this full bodied fruity beer.

SilkTork (5509) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2015
500ml clear bottle, filtered, from Lidl for £1. Whiff of light struck hops when poured. That poo smell does linger for a while. The beer is very basic. Quite thin and dry with powdery hops. You can drink it, and itís cheap. But it tastes like cheap, cardboardy beer.

Joropoolie157 (8) - Hartlepool, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2015 does not count
Special offer from lidl. Nice looking summer ale that is very pleasing on the palate. Keeps itís head well throughout and is a pleasing, effortless drink.

Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
Bought April 2015 from Lidl, Langley Moor, Co. Durham. 500 ml bottle, 99p, canít argue with the price. Pour very clear, golden appearance with white head that was quick to dissipate. Light, slightly sweet aroma. First hits the palate with distinct bitterness that gives way to a slightly sweet aftertaste in keeping with the aroma. Smooth, slightly thick texture. Nothing special but a decent enough summer ale.

StueyD (1555) - 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 (4772) - 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 donít bother.
