Tinned. Pale brown with thin bubbly head, highly carbonated. This is so bad Im not surprised hwaites dont own up to it. Thin malty tinny flavour with an unpleasant chemical backflavour. Bordering on evil but at least there will be no habgover.

440ml can at Kookfest, September 2006. You might expect a 2.1% canned bitter to taste like fizzy piss. But youd 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.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2006
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.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2006
Can @ Kookfest. Light seemingly easy drinking bitter but then water is quite drinkable. Some vague hop notes in the finish. Not good.

harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2006
Can at Kookfest 06. Pale copper with thin off white head. Yeasty, no real aroma, some faint caramel, no real hop. Just fizzy water

SilkTork (5542) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2006
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.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2006
Can (Chris_o Gathering06): Golden tight carb with a white head. Bland, thin and boring.
