Fin (10541) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2008
500ml bottle from Morrisons, Banbury, Oxon, consumed 01-06-08 Pours gold with med’ carbonation and white quickly fading head. Malty and grainy and also a touch on the sweet side but far better than I expected, in fact chilled in the garden it was actually not bad.

500ml bottle from Morrisons - Liverpool 2008 lager. A decently full bodied lager with few hops. Neutral palate. Neutral sweetness. Little flavour or character. No off flavours. Drinkable. A modest lager.

RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2008
Bottle. Bronze beer with a gently hopped aroma. The flavour is plainly hopped and lightly malty, and the flavour is mildly dry and toffee. Overall an average beer.

3.5
johndoughty (5449) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2008
Bottle. Clear and gentle.Some would say it lacks flavour but I found it reasonable but certainly not one of their best.

2.6
Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 27, 2007
Dark yellow colored. Nice fruity aroma with banana and sweetness, not very lagerish aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor is more lagerish: still nice soft fruits dominate with banana and some honey, mild hoppiness also in aftertaste.

3.4
ako (166) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 5, 2007
Almost pale amber color, head disappears quite quickly. Aroma is rather grassy, some fruit. Flavor needs some searching... Bitter finish almost comes first, before you can even find the taste. Grassy, quite malty. Tasted this the day after I had my first taste of Ayinger’s Jahrjundert, and was worried that Cains Finest would have it’s proverbial rear end handed to it, but no, it holds it’s ground rather well. Got this from my brother who just happened to visit Liverpool.

2.6
anders37 (26641) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2006
Bottle. Pours a golden colour with a small whit head. Malty grainy and grassy aroma. Sweet malty grassy flavor. Dry malty and bitter aftertaste.
