275ml bottle as part of a gift pack:deanso (10070) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - DEC 3, 2016
Really poor stuff from Marston’s here & probably one of the worst from the brewery that I can remember trying; not an enjoyable beer at all. There was a weak, quite bland feel to proceedings & the taste was definitely lacking, I got some early adjuncts & the odd lager taste but none of this was enough to distract from the skunk bitterness or the cheap feel of the beer; definitely not one to seek out.
27.5cl bottle from Home Bargains.
Thin white head. Hazy light amber pour. Very malty. Almost no bitterness. Bland and boring mmcd123 (7) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JAN 10, 2016 does not count
Bottle. Pale colour. No head retention. Just smells like a normal lager. Just a normal lager in taste as well, not much going on. Drinkable but not great. For people that dont like ales etc and just want to drink a normal beer. dynamiteninja (1853) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2016
Bottle. Golden amber with a white head that instantly dissipates. Nose is malt, hops, dirty water. Fruity yeastiness. Corn and dust. Light bitterness. Fruity tang on the finish. Dry and crisp mouthfeel.

In der Nase Malz, Trauben, Wein. Im Trunk bitter, sauer, auch im Abgang sehr sauer. Nicht sonderlich speziell, die Säure ist gewöhnungsbedürftig. s_hartshorne (2767) - wakefield, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2014

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2015 Part of a gift set. I dropped this on floor after only a few sips which really was the best place for it. Watery and bland, that’s as good as it gets. My (New Year) Resolution is never to buy this again.
New Rating: Pretty much as above although I didn’t spill it this time. Really not much to it. Standard English bitter with a slightly chalky finish. Neither too sweet or too bitter. Average at best.
