DanielFullard (24) - Sunderland, Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2013
Cheap and basic....Nothing bad about it but quite bland and unexceptional. Works as pre-pub bottle

harrisoni (13703) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2013
Clear bottle from Tesco. Clear golden beer with thickish white head. Citrusy hoppy aroma. Bit deader in the mouth. Dullish malts, some citrus on finish. not much if any bitterness. Bit thin in the flavour.

imdownthepub (10210) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2013
Bottled 500ml from Tesco, Uttoxeter, Staffs. Gold with very short lived head. There is a fusty, slightly mouldy note on opening which leads into the flavour, thin grainy beer with a vanilla note and a sweet jammy hint, otherwise not much at all. Disappointing.

500ml bottle. Poured a clear golden amber colour with a small, fading white head. Notes of grain, cardboard, grassy hops and toasted malt. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, short to medium length & low intensity finish. Drinkable but not great.

Not fantastic, probably not even good, but ok and cheaper than other beers so worth a go

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2013
500ml clear glass bottle from Tesco. £1. Cheap, but not value for money. Mouldy hay aroma. Tastes of dough, butter, dirty washing up water. Light bodied - quite limp in fact. Fairly unpleasant all round. Not undrinkable, just not very pleasant, and not at all rewarding. Not something you’d be in a hurry to repeat, but you can drink it without grimacing.
