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

SilkTork (5162) - 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.

tommann (2601) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours gold with a medium head. Aroma is lemon and biscuit, with buttery skunk. Taste has lemon washing up water, with a grassy, biscuit finish.

Leighton (10466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2012
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli. Pours perfectly clear gold with a fine, white foam head. Mellow biscuity malt nose, some sweet hay. Medium sweet flavor with doughy malts, white bread, very faint floral notes, biscuits. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish, all white bread, dough, hay. It is a very basic, sweet golden ale. Easy drinking, pleasant.

SarkyNorthener (1690) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2012
Bottle from Tesco. Pale straw colour and a little head. Slight aroma of sweet malts. Taste is a little of hops but minor. Not unpleasent but dull. The palate is bad, over carbonated. Reminds me of Pilsner without the quality.

foolberry (53) - New Malden, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2012
The nose is used dishcloth that should have been washed about a week ago. And hint of unflushed toilet. Very nasty. And I’m not joking. Taste is thin and bitter. Nothing more to say really. Horrible.
