Hanuta06 (457) - Washington, USA - APR 3, 2013
Serving: from (nitro) tap at Doyles Public House. Aroma: moderately sweet and malty. Appearance: average-sized, creamy, off-white, initial head with fair lacing and mostly diminishing longevity. Hazy, flat, medium-yellow body. Taste: lightly solvent-like initial flavor and lightly acetic, cardboard-like finish with short duration. Palate: light body, creamy texture and no carbonation. Overall: everything was very good but the strange taste.

BeardedAvenger (365) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2016
Tap at Wotton House Hotel, Dorking. Nil aroma. Looks OK - pale golden, creamy head. Light bitter - pretty favourless. Watery. A lager-esque bitter.

Skarecrow (349) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 18, 2016
On Tap at Speakers Corner, Browns Bay in Auckland. Golden color with OK head. Not much of an aroma. Mild bitterness with a somewhat thin finish and a hint of lingering wet cardboard. Underwhelming.

A fairly typical nitro bitter. Smooth but fairly watery. Bland but easy to drink. Lacking in flavour and character but not disgusting.

I used to be a big fan of this when I was younger, maybe my palate changed, maybe the recipe changed. It has a sort of bready, malty and slight floral taste - its very indistinct. I do like the creamy top though.

akoeninger (694) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 27, 2016
At the airport hotel after easyJet screwed me over. This was one of two options on the voucher. Cant say it tastes bad, because there is not much there to critic. Lightly flavored water

sarauckelman (447) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2016
Clear amber with thick head. No aroma. Amazingly thin and watery, with water being the predominant flavor, followed by a bit of beer and then a bit of hops. Insipid.

Pours golden, very creamy off-white head. Almost no aroma to speak of. Watery. Nearly flavorless.

Bland, watery and weak... only to be drunk when nothing else is available anywhere...

Towey1989 (2005) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2016
Keg at The Lion, Stoke-On-Trent. A clear deep golden colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of caramel, bready malts, some metal and slight fruits. Taste of caramel, some bready malts, slight fruits, a little apple and subtle metal. Light bodied but a watery texture. A short, malty bitterness in the finish. Its a bland, watery draught bitter, I wasnt expecting much.
