Had this for lunch today with an overpriced fish and chips. Ok, really not much going on here. Wet. Better than water.

Bottle from Tesco Wrexham. Pours a nice gold colour with a pillowy white head. Aroma is tropical, hoppy and slightly metallic. Taste is pretty much the same with a good amount of malt. Nice enough, not incredible though.

MustangMarkF (219) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2014
330ml Bottle. It pours a thin white head over a golden body. Its aroma is faint but there is some malt and some caramel amongst floral notes. Its taste was surprising deep for a yankee beer. There was caramel and malts again but with quite a strong hint of honey and there was a definite earthiness to it too. Shame about the small bottle but a very good effort. Quite enjoyable.

dj (521) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle, 330ml. A light copper colour with a small head. A slightly malty, grassy aroma with dark fruit notes. Flavour is malty with a little caramel and citrus, a somewhat watery finish. Moderate carbonation. Not bad but nothing special either.

Vaiz (3343) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAR 28, 2014
Bottle at home. Clear golden pour. Aroma of grainy malts, some soapy apples and a bit metallic. Flavor is grainy, sweet, a hint of creamy malts and quite boring.

EyeAmBaldman (229) - Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Pours a dark straw color with a thin white head. Smells like a corn cob or the inside of a grain bin. Taste is grainy as well and of corn mash. Kind of tastes like Coors Light on steroids. Blah.

Bottle from Tesco. Sweet vegetal flavour, hops smothered caramel malt. Not good, not good at all.
