Mr_Pink_152 (1031) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2014
500ml bottle from Tesco. the short write up would be "Simply" not an IPA. longer, well golden colour, aroma has very little hop, taste the same. not exciting.

eastkenttom (37) - herne bay, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2014
From the devilish Tesco empire, not this was easy enough drinking. Head retention was a bit better than I thought, and good for the price. £1.50

MichaelAwesome (4566) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 30, 2014
Mit McTapps geteit. Fein und simpel ohne große Punkte. Recht süffig, etwas malzig, mild und etwas wässrig. Anleihen von Nüssen und etwas Hopfen. Ganz ok.

McTapps (4566) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle from Tesco in Eastbourne. Pours out in a clear amber colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of barley and grains. Taste of barley, mild hops, straw. light malt, nuts and bitter hops. Medium bitter finish. Refreshing, yet nothing special.

Piotr (36) - POLAND - JUN 5, 2014
Aroma of ordinary lager, very little nose on hoppes or fruits. Taste quite spicy with very little bitternes. It something between a bitter/British ale and a lager. Did not what to expect so not very much disappointed. One is more than enough.

deanso (5727) - the Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2014
50cl bottle from Tesco. Thin white head. Clear golden pour. A bitter rather than an ipa. Subtle bitterness.
