0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Tinned. Pale brown with thin bubbly head, highly carbonated. This is so bad I’m not surprised hwaites don’t own up to it. Thin malty tinny flavour with an unpleasant chemical backflavour. Bordering on evil but at least there will be no habgover.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
440ml can at Kookfest, September 2006. You might expect a 2.1% canned bitter to taste like fizzy piss. But you’d be wrong there. Piss would actually have some flavour. This has nothing except a vague hint of metal. Has an almost Alka-Seltzer feel, no doubt from the force carbonation. The colour is amber. Distinctly unpleasant.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can. Pretty nasty stuff. Weak, watery, bland, with a very rusty/tinny flavour coming through from start to finish. There are some slight hop/malt characters, but this pretty much has no flavour. Fizzy.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can @ Kookfest. Light seemingly easy drinking bitter but then water is quite drinkable. Some vague hop notes in the finish. Not good.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can at Kookfest 06. Pale copper with thin off white head. Yeasty, no real aroma, some faint caramel, no real hop. Just fizzy water

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cheap tinned beer from the Co-op. Very thin and tight. Watery. Some carbonation adds bite and interest. Faint metallic notes. Barely any malt or hops. Vague cardboardy bitterness in the swallow. Dire stuff.
