Can. Golden with a large white foam. Aromas are grain, corn and metal with biscuit and grain. Lemon with peppery carbonation. Flavours are sweet corn with light lemon and apricot. Sugar with grain and a dry mellow hopped finish. Mediocre yet drinable if at zero degrees

500ml can ([email protected])
I’m denying any knowledge of this shit. Anna had it, not me. You didn’t see me drink any of it, so you can’t prove anything. Anna liked it. I thought it tasted of nothing - which proves that I couldn’t have had anything in my mouth!

Can at ChrisO tasting, thanks to Ian, 30/12/12. Clear pale golden with a thin white dissinterested head. Nose is pale malt, grain, light fart. Taste follows with less of the fart - ie not much doing! Light medium in body, some spritz in the carb. Cack in a can!

harrisoni (19753) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2015 Can at Chriso New Year 2012/13. clear gold lasting white head. has an aroma of not malt. some hop though. still ok drinkable. The corn is quite startling. some cardboard 2.1/5 re-rate. I drink about 8 cans of this a year so I must quite like it. It’s not as bad as some pale lagers commercially made, in fact there is a touch of lemon which is quite decent.

rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 30, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2013 Can at Chriso’s tasting in London, 121230. Golden beer with a quite decent lasting white head. Malty vegetable aroma, fruity, grass notes, cardboard notes, floral notes. Malty cardboard flavor, hoppy notes, very, very thin, papery, some fruits.

The_Bish (1118) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2012
21 ratings? What’s that all about? I used to like this stuff, thought it would be one of the better pales. But it is not. It smells of piss and tastes straw piss. Piss. Pissy pissy piss piss. The MORE I PISS. No, that doesn’t work.

Euro lager fizz. It's some lager yeah? Pilsner I think yeah? Tastes of horrible nothingness. Is that horrible? I'm getting fed up of tastes of nothing pilsner brewed for a crappy British palate. You could deffo drink loads of it. Lovely lout! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SilkTork (5946) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2012

June, 2003 5.5% abv. Yellow can. Supported in 2003 by a TV ad campaign of Who’s The Daddy? Stewed hops with a vague malt base that gets nastier as you drink. No matter how many times I drink this, it doesn’t get any better. [1.2]
Dec, 2012 500ml yellow can. 5%. A clean and drinkable lager. Moderate sweetness. Moderate bitterness. Watery texture. [2.3]

BlackHaddock (8097) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2012
Jan 2007: Small brown 275ml bottle, 5.0%, brewed somewhere within the European Union for ’Carlsberg’. Looked good, crisp, clear, golden yellow with a head that was whiter than white (as the Daz adverts used to say). Do lagers smell of anything really? No, this one doesn’t either. Just a beery, yeasty, hoppy, malty, weak mix. Fairly dry in taste, I drank this while making a Beef Lasagne, this is a kitchen drink, not for serious supping. Can’t get excited about it, but it is not bad enough to slag off, all in all, a typical European fizzy lager.
