Cans from Lidl. Weak tasting beer but what do you expect from cheap supermarket own brand. Having said that it’s not the worst I have had by a long way

Avoid the cans of original bitter. According to the label this is brewed in France, not Marstons, and it has all the flavour and subtlety of massed-produced supermarket French lager i.e. none. It is cheap, but you can understand why.

Pack of four cans from Lidl. Cheap as chips, but not worth it. Thin body and tastes like tin.. You can drink it, but it tastes like an old fashioned keg bitter.

Looks ok, darkish amber with a reasonable white head. Nose is of cereals with some hops hidden in the background. The palate is dominated by those cereals again, with some hop (extract?) flavours, quite sweet and smooth. All in all, not the worst beer I’ve tasted but not one I’d be in a hurry to buy again.

Can from Lidl, Todmorden. Classic bitter with a medium bitterness and arguably better than average as far as canned ale is concerned. Copper with a frothy head, this is a light easy drinking bitter with a gentle smoothness in its texture and possibly some caramel sweetness evident.

This used to be a very palatable beer until about 5-6 years ago when they cut the strength from 4 to 3.6%. Now it is rather bland and tasteless and hence I don’t buy it anymore.

edsspoon (905) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2014
Can - amber with a fizzy off white head which fades away fairly quickly. Aroma of grass and caramel. Taste is minerally, caramel, grass, earth, medium sweet and a bitter end. Light body, medium carbonation.

Bottle @ Chriso’s pre-GBBF Shindig. Reddish amber pour with a small head. General bread, caramel, apple on the nose. A touch artificial. The taste is quite bready indeed. Maybe a bit of toffee-dipped apple. Medium body, soft carbonation. So forgettable.

As a lover of hoppy, bitter bitters I was somewhat surprised at how pleasant I found this beer. It’s lowish alcohol rating makes it ideal drinking for long barbecue sessions and it has proved to be extremely popular amongst my friends who have varied preferences. The tasting notes already submitted are pretty accurate, in the main, so I will not repeat them but merely state that it is light easy drinking and will not disgrace itself as a party beer. I make a point of keeping a supply for the less serious beer drinkers who call and often get compliments from those who haven’t come across it before.

Can 440ml. @ [ (chriso Pre-GBBF Shindig) by chriso - London ].

Clear medium yellow amber colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white to white head. Aroma is light moderate malty, caramel, cardboard, paper. Flavour is moderate sweet with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20130810]

[email protected] primary school Halloween disco bar. Amber beer with small head. Slight malt aroma. Taste is light malts, cereal grain and a little caramel. Watery on the palate. Drinkable, but not bad by any means.
