Quack-Duck's rating

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
Quack-Duck (9490) - Down South, - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle from Tesco Exmouth. Golden colour, very malty with only a shy Touch of hops in the short finish.

GuideDogSaint (1718) - Xiamen, CHINA - AUG 31, 2017
500ml bottle from Aldi, Chertsey. Pours clear amber with a minimal head. Aroma of malt and toffee. Sweet taste. Mild bitter finish.

Piepenhenrich (1197) - Steinbach, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2017 Pours golden rather than amber, with a low quickly disappearing head. Aroma of some malts and faint hops. Taste is generally not too intense if not a little watery. Some distant hops flavor leaves a gentle bitterness in the palate. Mid-range at best.

Well I honestly wasn’t expecting much from a bitter (which I tend to avoid) or a sub £1 bottle, but pleasantly surprised. Nice fairly hoppy and malty ale, easy drinking and beautiful golden brown colour. Not too bitter either. And for 90p a bottle, it’s almost outdoing Hobgoblin (£1.25) for taste vs alcohol vs price ratio, it’s only 3.8% after all.

downender (8774) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2017
Bottle from Asda as Amber Bitter. Pale amber in colour, with a thin, off-white, head. Easy drinking bitter, with some caramel, cereal malts, a touch of hedgerow hop and moderately bitter finish. A solid product and good value.

saxo (19357) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2017
Bottle from Tesco, New Street, Birmingham. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are sweet malt, grain, fruits and hops. Light bitter finish.

Padchenko (377) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 4, 2017
Pours clear amber with small white head. Bitter hoppy finish but sweetish in the mouth - caramel and barley malt are prominent.

Dbcwi88 (28) - Loughton, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2017
Bought at tesco for only 90p. Much nicer than expected. Real goldings hop hit though generally dull beer. More than drinkable and great for price

NallePalle (690) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2017
Bottle, 50 cl, Tesco Culverhouse Cross (Cardiff), labelled Amber Bitter. Decent bitter, a bit metallic, dull aroma and small, a bit boring, bitter finish.

Icedwarf (1763) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2017
Lichtbruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht bitter hoppig en licht zoet met iets van geroosterd brood. Redelijk bier, niet bijzonder.

Davros IX (449) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2017
Bottle at home. A typical English bitter, with suble malt and bitter hops. Perhaps a bit too subtle, but this has a nice low ABV and it can be forgiven. Overall a good session beer, but nothing to make it stand out.
