Banksiz (127) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 25, 2017
Can from Sainsburys. Faintly malty nose, medium light body, minerally-bitter flavor with some malty sweetness. Noble hop flavor not evident, but packs a lot of body and flavor in a 3.6% beer.

The dominant aroma is dough but with a caramel malt. Copper orange/red appearance, minimal head, clear but with light carbonation. Mild to medium bitterness (but a strong hopped taste) but balanced with the right amount of sweetness. Good on the palate - the carbonation is about right. Very drinkable low abv bottled bitter.

nephirem (436) - CROATIA - APR 5, 2017
Bottle, 0.5l. Clear copper pour with one finger off-white head, quickly diminishing. Little to no lacing. Faint nose, undefined, a bit grainy, a bit cardboard, slightly herbal. Thin body with high carbonation. Regular texture. Moderately bitter taste. Aroma is faint and generic. A bit grainy, traces of hops. Cardboard. Slightly grassy and herbal. Wood notes. Mostly bland and unimpressive. Watery and thin - small wonder considering the amazingly low ABV. Overall, meh. Drinkable, but pointless. Boring effort.

simontomlinson (228) - Blackburn, Lancashire, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2017
Off white fluffy head stayed on a translucent, slightly effervescent copper coloured body. Sweet fruit & caramel aroma with hints of hops. Thin bodied, prickly on the palate. Crisp. Sweet with caramel to the fore with tangy bitter finish.

Rijetko se desi da prospem pivo. Ne sjećam se - moda 2 puta u ivotu da je pivo zavrilo u sudoperu... E ovo sam prosuo. Ne moe se piti. Nije do pivara, do vremena je. Prosto pivo je previe vremena provelo u prozirnoj flai. Sunce i vrijeme su pretvorile hmelj u stare vojničke čarape, ručno prane u kasarni sa onim sapunom za ve. Ko je sluio vojsku 90tih sjetiće se. Nepitko. teta. Pivo izgleda jako lijepo. Divna boja. Imaju i novu etiketu. Na ovoj slici je stara etiketa.

Davros IX (127) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2017
A very nice session real ale with a good balance of hops and malt. I enjoyed it and would happily drink it again. Nothing spectacular and it could be said to be slightly watery, but drinkable. You dont always want to drink 8% IPAs and stouts!!!!
