Leighton (22307) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2015
Enjoyed this by the can many a time - mostly recently at the Covent Garden Odeon, last night. This beer pours pale yellow (I’ve poured it before!) and has a quick, foamy white head. The nose is crispy cereal, light metal, pale bread. Light-medium sweet flavor with with lightly biscuity pale bread, some simple sugars, mild grain husk bitterness, some hay. Light bodied with average carbonation. Pretty crisp to finish with some further bitter grain notes, cereal and biscuits. Solid available-everywhere pale lager.

Theydon_Bois (20628) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2013
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 (19336) - 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 (18844) - 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.

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!

BeerandBlues2 (13814) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 22, 2014
Can. Pours clear gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is Pils malt, light corn, and faint spicy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

allmyvinyl (11020) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 29, 2013
440ml can from Scotmid. Pours clear yellow with a decent enough white head. Aromas of corn, cereal, dusty. Taste has an unpleasant industrial mouth-coating astringency. Watery and thin. Pretty bad.

ManVsBeer (10951) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2013
Ordinary but also passable lager which can feel a little dry in its character.
