500ml clear glass bottle from Tesco. Toffee accented malt aroma. Pleasant malt, toffee, fruit and grass flavours. Lingering hop warmth in the finish. Quite drinkable, and decent flavours for a low abv pasteurised bottled beer. I could drink a few of these.
Bottle from Home Bargains. Pours a clear brown amber colour with minimal fizzy off white head. Aroma is biscuity, a touch of caramel, metallic, skunky and a bit of vegetable/grassy hops. Taste is surprisingy ok although somewhat fizzy/watery in the mouth. For such a weak beer this isn’t so bad but also really not too great either nybol (2311) - DENMARK - JUL 12, 2017

Not going to set the beer world alight but ok for the low abv. Malt driven with a hint of dusty hop easy drinking shoestring (420) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - APR 1, 2017
UPDATED: APR 3, 2017 Slight tinny shepherd neame thing on nose for me . Looks good . Biscuit and light caramel in mouth. Ever slight watery but wow good for weak abv. Would never have guessed . Given high score taking cheap price and what they did with 2.8 per cent. Defo a winner for 89 p jjsint (3434) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2017
Cask at the Rock, Cambridge. Amberish brown with very little head. Pleasant if very muted biscuit aroma with a hint of cinnamon toast. Taste is sourish sweet, with a woody tang near the end of the sip. Medium body, a bit on the oily side. It tastes stronger than 2.8%, although it’s a fairly standard bitter otherwise.

Tastes ok but watery. Little aroma or palate. Looks nice enough, probably won’t have again. DanielBrown (4528) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2016
Bottle as a lovely gift. Initial and post-initial impressions were: this is poor. Have to say though, the last few mouthfuls were a marked improvement. When warm, this took on a smoked edge, masking the cereal somewhat. canddw (101) - - MAR 25, 2016
Bottle. Clear deep amber beer with white frothy head. Stale nose of hops and peppermint. Thin watery taste with cream, pepper and metal. No finish, just a residual staleness. Truly rubbish.deanso (10053) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - DEC 7, 2015

50cl bottle from Kellys Expats shop.
Thick creamy white head. Clear light amber pour. Subtle bitterness. uckelman (813) - Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2015
Pours clear amber, some off white head. Aroma is sweet and musty. Rather sweet and vegetal. Heavier than usual body for an English bitter. This is ok for a low-alcohol beer, but really suffers from not having a bit more fermentation.
