Bottle 0,5ltr: Clear amber coloured brew with fruity and floral flavours, also some nice hoppiness. Quite great what they in England can make out of low alcohol brews.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A medium to dark amber coloured beer with a weak white head. A potent skunky aroma to start with, which is followed up with a slightly sweet malt aroma, hints of butterscotch, toffee and caramel. Medium-bodied, smooth mouthfeel. A medium-sweet taste of malt, there is a bready element that tags onto the toffee and caramel from the aroma, as well as a touch of honey and candy floss. After a while there is a light, prickly tang of hop, giving the beer a weak, fruity finish. Altogether a bit bland.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Tesco. Copper coloured with a tight, off-white head and moderate carbonation. Light, malty aroma with a chalky edge and some boiled sweets. Flavour was sweet with plenty of caramel and a surpassingly heavy mouth feel for such a low ABV beer. Finish was moderately bitter, with some jarring sodden cardboard. A strange mix and inferior to Fullerís similarly weak Mighty Atom.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Tesco Exmouth. Clear amber, mid-sized head. Good hop aroma. Light-bodied with shy malt flavour, hints of caramel and some quite nice resiny and grassy hops, especially in the finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Well, I wondered what a low strength budget busting beer would taste like ...... drinkable actually. Thinnish head and not too much aroma. Tastes like a pineapple infused sweet tea kind of brew. Not as sweet and sickly the more you have. Its a bit thin, but passable. Quite fizzy, but not badly so considering the flavour and style of the drink.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml clear glass bottle from Tesco. Toffee accented malt aroma. Pleasant malt, toffee, fruit and grass flavours. Lingering hop warmth in the finish. Quite drinkable, and decent flavours for a low abv pasteurised bottled beer. I could drink a few of these.
