BlackOut (43) - East End, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2007
Light and very gassy, very commercial and overrated belgian lager thats probably being brewed somewhere in Kent. Chavs like it. I try to stay away from it. In the old days if i was like drinking stella it ment that im trying to sober up a bit.

BigBeerHead (42) - Reading, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2009
This is awful and I don’t know what they put into it and how much longer they can continue to sell this tripe but simply a rubbish lager which taskes a bit like Kronenbourg 1664. If you have any sense you shall not be drinking ’Wife Beater’ as this gets you off your head and will make you regret stuff you’ve done and the hangover is not much better.

jrizko (42) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 25, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 16, 2012 (Second Rating, Home, 330mL Bottle, Vintage Sept. 2011, Lager Glass, 5.0% ABV, Cellar Temp, 24/03/12. #23-41.)

Appearance (3/5): Pours a clear, orange tinted light amber, with a two finger, white, creamy, mostly lasting head with good lacing.
Aroma (5/10): Dominant cereals and citrus, with florals, grass, and skunk. Very subtle perfume note.
Taste (5/10): Sweet and very lightly acidic at the beginning, light bitterness throughout and in the moderate length finish. Quite well balanced. Has a slightly savory overall taste, reminiscent of a pilsener.
Palate (3/5): Light body, lively carbonation, watery and slightly creamy texture, with a slightly astringent finish.
Overall (10/20): Probably my favorite macrobrew. It’s available everywhere, so it’s usually my go-to in chain restaurants that don’t serve craft beer. Nothing particularly unique or excellent, but wonderfully average. The skunk aroma is particularly bad in some bottles. My guess is that the light green glass is particularly susceptible to skunking, especially since its quite old by the time I get it, since its an import.
Drinkability: 5/5. Character: 2/5. Buy Again: Definitely Yes.

DubbelO7 (42) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2002
Good beer for the money... at least here in Western Canada ... I moved up to here from the Eastern U.S. and never was willing to pay what was being charged for it in Pennsylvania. It seems to be a beer of choice here, cheap cheap and cheap again . reminds me of Heineken etcetra yet not as caustic.

PushEject (42) - Palmdale, California, USA - APR 16, 2003
A fancy Budweiser with a harsher bite and higher alchohol content. Typical lager clean & dry finish. A good beer if you like mass-produced American lagers, but not stellar.

Simon (42) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 17, 2006
Poured yellow with a foamy white head that stuck around like a freeloading guest. The head and nice lacing could not make up for the average flavor and awkwardly hoppy aftertaste.

Canuckistani (41) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2007 For a macrobrewery it’s ok, but there’s better macrobreweries. Pale beer, pours with a good head which dissipates almost immediately. Medium bitterness with malty flavour, lightly hopped finish. The finish is better than the initial flavour. Easily obtained almost anywhere. Definitely not something to go out of your way for.
