Bottle from Tesco. Burnt orange pour with absolutely no head. This bottle may not have been treated very well. Big skunky metalic smell. Palete is very thin. Flavour is metalic slightly nutty. Worst beer Ive have in a long time.

pivnizub (10454) - Bochum, Porř, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2016
Flasche(Dank an Sabine!): Deep golden , a bit unclear, quite quickly collapsing loose off-white head, dry fruity-malty nose, tannic hops and an illusion of almonds detectable; moderate dryish bitter-sweet flavour, a certain malty base still present; pretty light bodied but not watery at all; mild but still quite spicy bitter-fruity finish. O.K.

Cask, Slug & Lettuce, Leicester. Amber gold with an off white head. Aromas are weetabix and light lemon with trace lime. Earthy with peppery hops. Flavours are dry biscuit with weetabix and pithy, bitter lemon. Clean on the palate with peppery spiciness. Not bad.
