It looks like beer, the taste is very light, and itís quite fizzy. Itís good to get some in and keep them in the fridge because itís only £1 for 4. Itís inoffensive, and good for if you like to quaff quite a lot of beer in one sitting but not get wasted. For instance, I tend to buy some decent beer, then have this for after if I still want to have some more liquid refreshment in the form of a beery tasting drink that isnít sweet, like shandy so often is. Better than drinking 2 litres of coke.

Light copper, no head. Very bland and weak bitter with next to no taste to it

Kavu (2078) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 22, 2013
0,44l can from Tesco. Pours clear amber with a medium tan head. Aroma is nonexistent, some malts. Flavor is fizzy tap water with a hint of malts and some hops in the end. Watery doesnít begin to describe it.

Cheap at 25p a can. Takes a little getting used to in regards to lack of taste, just a slight taste of hops and a little caramel. Doesnít taste bad, it just has a very watered down taste and palate to it. But to be honest I always have some of these in the fridge to quench my thirst.

DruncanVeasey (7099) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2012
19.75p tin from..well, you know. Aroma copper penny, slight malt vinegar, underlying watery aniseed hints. Marginally better flavour: digestive biscuits, coppery bitterness, dull herbal hop at a push. Batemanís shandy. Chilled to almost freezing itís just about drinkable.

berkshirejohn (4381) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2011
440ml can. Amber with a thin cream head; caramel aroma; watery with a weak malty flavour; nothing in the way of a finish, but what do you expect at 17p a can? Itís better than water any way.

HenrikSoegaard (10368) - Randers, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2011
Can from Tesco. Frothy white good mostly lasting head. DArk yellow colour. Light bready malty aroma. Light hoppy. Light bitter flavor. Short light bitter finish. Watery palate.

stravale (2041) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - AUG 15, 2011
Can from Tesco. Bought for a laugh....Light brown with rocky large head that dissipates quickly.......Aroma - almost nothing - a faint whiff of sweet cereal......Tastes of water with a bit of sweet dark malt.....very slight metal bitterness .....watery mouthfeel....moderate to high carbonation....almost no finish but a slight hint of metal...for 25p a can I wasnít expecting much......itís actually drinkable and not awful tasting (prob because there is virtually nothing to taste).......itís really just light fizzy water with a bit of malt flavouring.....BTW does anyone know who makes the stuff for Tesco under contract?
