Pretty good stronger/cheaper alternative to canned Smiths, a very good buy if you nip down the local co-op and have only got the choice of cheap lagers etc!

Can. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Dark yellow colour. Moderate bitter flavor. Light sweet toffee notes. Average moderate bitter finish. Oily palate. Quite good canned beer.

SpiderJon (4) - Cardiff, WALES - MAR 10, 2013 does not count
Nice dark-copper colour, and reasonable aroma, but it has and unbalanced malty/caramel taste. Very little depth or complexity of flavour, poor hop taste. Definitely not a "premium" beer.
