From a Bottle.Pale gold in colour,no head,fruit and berry aroma,chemical sweetness that was too much for me. johndoughty (5398) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2004
Sometimes as a beer lover you have to make sacrifices and this was one of them. A very poor attempt at a fruit beer which thankfully seems to have been taken off the shelves at least in England.No doubt the brewer who produced this did it under duress from the Marketing and Finance people.I can think of no other reason.Personally I would rather resign than have my name associated with this apollogy for a beer. boto (2193) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JUN 24, 2003
Bottle: Light, golden color. There is basically no head to it, and what is there fizzes right away. There are currants in the aroma, but it also smells strongly of pine. Syrupy taste of currants, with something else there also. The other tastes completely mask what I'm sure is a completely non-descript lager. I like fruit beers, but this is a disaster. STAY AWAY!

Bottle. Gold colour, no head and moderate condition. At least they avoided the temptation to make it purple. Raspberry and blackcurrant mask any obvious beer aromas, save for a slightly lambic acidity. Saccharine sweet and harshly chemical in the mouth. Dry and sharp on the throat in the finish.

The incorrect spellings are as they appear on the bottle! This smells more musty than fruity, in fact it smells plain wrong. Looks like a flat lager. Flavours are syrupy and chemical. Sickly, nasty stuff - this is not a beer it is a terrible alcopop exercise. The finish clings to the roof of your mouth, a reminder of how bad this is. Please, drink a lambic!
