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

Mister hurtigt smagen af nødder, men en rigtig flot farve. En næsten fraværende bitterhed

Not going to set the beer world alight but ok for the low abv. Malt driven with a hint of dusty hop easy drinking

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

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.
