1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
440ml can. From Lidl.
Light golden color with a thin white head.
How can a beer be this tasteless, and total lack of aroma as well. Some mild malts, and some sweetness. Totally useless. Why make this swill?

Can. Clear golden in color with a white head. Sweetness and some cereal in aroma. Light bitterness in taste, some metallic vibes as well. Pretty much tasteless.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. Pours clear golden with small white head. Aroma and taste have just some maltiness and some carboard. Watery and nearly no taste at all.

440 ml can (4.0% abv).
Pours clear pale golden color with a small head. Aroma is bland as expected, slightly grassy with mellow fruit notes. Flavor follows the same lines with some pale malts and grain notes, wet cardboard. Palate cleanser if nothing else.

44 cl can (4,0%) @ olio 11/2017
Aroma has sweet maltyness and honey. Flavour has cardboardy tones, harsh maltyness, starchy notes and mild honey notes. As bulk as you’d expect.

440ml can, thanks BTR. Cardboardy, slightly earthy and watery lager with hints of bready notes. Meh.

Can from Lidl, Wrekenton, Gateshead. Pale straw coloured with a slight grassy and toffee flavour followed by a gentle bitter-sweet finish. Not much flavour with this one.

Don’t like it. These cans used to be bigger (500 ml), sold individually, and taste a whole lot better. Then a few of months ago the smaller 440 ml cans came in and the taste seemed to nose-dive; the difference is like chalk and cheese. Indeed, so bad was the taste I considered taking it back until I re-tested several different batches each with the same problem.
This beer tastes flat, with a sickly after-taste that quickly turns you off consuming more. What happened, LIDL? The previous, larger cans were fantastic but this.. you’ve definitely changed something here, something I now avoid like the plague. Whatever you’ve done to it, this beer is now ruined for me :(
