This smelt like the devil’s arse, really pungent and quite off putting. The taste was a little better, very malty, thin, like drinking a soft drink. With added malt. Cheers Dan, Lithuanian and low alcohol, that’s a double for me.

Small offwhite head. Clear deep red body. Earthy plastic aroma with cinnamon and caramel notes. Very firmly musty. Dry-sweet earthy raisiny taste with honey notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Not much in the way of aftertaste. Quite nice, but not great. (0.5l can, Kaimas, Vilnius.)

Can from somewhere on Rookery Road, Handsworth. Quite the worst stench I’ve ever smelt on a ’beer’ - awful. Genuinely off putting. Tastes like a malty, inoffensive drink. Quite bad. Could be worse, but better than the genuinely awful smell suggests.

50 cl bottle. Pours clear and golden deep. Amber with a small off white head. Aroma is mouldy, breadish and sweet. Sweet, caramelish and toffee malty. Sweet and light caramelish finish.

Leighton (13629) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2012
Foil-topped can at Chriso Tasting, London. Pours clear copper-ruby with a small, beige cream head. Creamy toffee sugar aroma with notes of brown bread and caramel. Big sweet flavor with wimpy brown bread, light berries. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sugary finish with light and sticky caramel, more brown bread. Bah, it’s not as bad as it could be.

Poured from a plastic bottle. Dark ruby-red coloured body. Low, tan-coloured head. No lace. Sweet bread and dried fruity nose. Modest taste of prunes, dark bread and cola. Sugar sweet ending. Thin bodied. Quite possible to drink as a sweet soft drink (kindly shared by djoeye, Tromsř 07.05.2014).
