Certainly looks the part, to begin with, but the nice white head quickly disappears and leaves tiny islands of bubbles floating around. Uninspiring nose, some malt, hops??? I didnt notice any! Thin and watery palate, again, some malt but little else. Quite disappointing, but what did I expect for a quid?

McTapps (3869) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle from local Tesco in Eastbourne. Pours out in a clear light golden colour with low ehad and medium body. Aroma of hops and flowers. Taste of mild hops, light malt, bread, wheat and flowers. Mild finish. Boring but drinkable.

MichaelAwesome (3871) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Eastbourne shared with McTapps. This one is really a simple one. Bit of straw with some cereals and bread combined with some vanilla and hops in the back. Bit dull with an unpleasing bitter end. Below average.

TTBADGER (5) - - JUN 21, 2014 does not count
Bottle, 500ml. This beer is ok. Aroma has a slight chemical/sulphurous character. Light straw in colour with a very thin white head. Slight fruity taste with background flavours of honey and malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle at home. I have nothing interesting to say about this. It is what you’d expect. That is all.

BlackHaddock (3598) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2013
Clear 50cl bottle: BBD of 31 July 2014, poured into a UK pint sleeve on 23 Aug 2013. As the name suggests, this is a golden coloured brew; it is also bright and clean looking with a full but thinning head of white bubbles. The nose was light malts with a slight citrus note. The taste followed the aroma to the letter, no great depth of flavour but a pleasant enough blend that isn’t going to ’blow your socks off’ or test your taste buds. Refreshing and easy to drink, thirst quenching and fine for a fairly cheap supermarket brew.

Cheap and basic....Nothing bad about it but quite bland and unexceptional. Works as pre-pub bottle
