Not a good lager at all. Thing is you could have 6 of these for 3.50Strl so this became a stand by

Can (BBE looks like 2009, but could be 2008 too). Hilarious find on the flea market in Palosaari, Vaasa, and I took the chance to buy it for 2 euros, with the thought that it probably wasnt any good to begin with. Yellowish golden colour with a small white head. Bubbly and crisp carbonation still. Aroma is grassy, herbal, earthy and some bready malts. Flavour is quite similar, but also has a quite evident grainy and some cooked vegetably notes to it.

The_Osprey (7405) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2013 Used to be the only lager in my local village pub. Had with crisps and chocolate - was a good combination altogether. The lager is pretty standard though.

From the archives: Reminiscing about my summers spent in England, I remember that this was the cheapest available lager. You could by a case of XXXX for 10 quid. Simple pale lager. Go get Tesco cheapest lager - it was very similar. Was a really good value :-)

What the four Xs stand for might sum this lager up, pretty poor bog-standard stuff.

Old rate. On tap in Lincolnshire, England. Pours a pale gold with a small white head. Aroma was stock macro lager and served too cold which might be a blessing in this case. Aroma was slightly adjuncty, grainy and a hoppy, medium dry finish. Not the worst pale lager Ive had, but barely passable.
