Why all the hate for this beer? Oh right. This is kind of like the Aerosmith of beer to me: I know it sucks but I liked it when I was young and didnít know any better, so Iíll always have fond memories, and I still like to go back and sample it from time to time. So, while I may be a bit biased by fond memories of drinking this in Scotland a decade ago, I still feel like this stuff goes down okay. Nothing interesting flavour-wise. Sweet, grainy malt. A bit of ambiguous dryness on the finish. Itís drinkable, without being remotely distinct.

Osprey87 (1579) - WALES - AUG 10, 2014
Can, 4%. Dark amber, sparkling, small white head. Aroma is not really worth writing about. Body is medium with a touch of carbonation. Taste is malty, tonic water, light bitterness. Itís an inoffensive, well judged macro. Not bad at Ä1 for 500ml.

Pours a clear pale yellow with a large white head. Aroma of sweet malt and light grain. Flavor is basically lightly beer flavored water with a hint of sweetness.

gunnar (5214) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2014
Keg at the Busta House Hotel, Shetland. Pours clear straw coloured with a small fast disappearing white head. Faint sweet grainy aroma. Taste is light bitter and dry, with a watery mouthfeel, not all bad, but close.
