I am not a beer expert. I just like to drink beer. This beer taste like old lady perfume. It is horrible. I bought an 8 pack of imported beers. I drank a partial can of this and threw out the rest. I only opened the second can so I could rate it. Nasty stuff. (259 characters)

Poured from a 14.9 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some malts. Taste is malts, grains, refreshing, very light hops. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a little light for the style, but nonetheless a refreshing beer on a hot summer day. (286 characters)

16oz can served in a pint glass.

L - clear and yellow with a white head that thinned out after a while.

S - sweet and a bit grainy with a mild floral hop aroma.

T - starts out somewhat sweet before a good shot of bitterness brings it to the finish line.

F - medium bodied with a crisp and refreshing feel.

O - I'd drink this beer again, and again. (352 characters)

500ml from Asda:
Golden with a bubbly, one centimetre tall head on top that has okay retention.

Grainy with a lot of lager hops and some lighter, grassy ones. There is some sweet malts too and various adjuncts with a sweet, almost honey like aroma following this.

Corn, some light hops and sweet lager malts with some corn and a hint of honey. This was a fairly bland and basic tasting beer & certainly not a craft one.

Very tangy with a lot of carbonation and a light body. There is a definite lager feel to the beer and it is fairly bland.

This one tastes cheap and standard and certainly isn't worth picking up, other than malts and a slight hint of honey it had nothing to offer so give it a miss. (706 characters)

A - Golden in colour with an ample head that retains very well through the drinking period. Moderate lacing on the glass. I can tell this is a medium-high carbonation by the bubbles rolling to the top of the beer.

S - Grains, candy, red lemonade, soda, sweetbreads on the nose. It's all sweet pleasantness here.

T - Tastes very much as the flavours I got on the nose, add the sweet malts, a weakly bitterness, and a somewhat 'off' gassy after-taste. Still its not half-bad at all and holds up well.

MF - Thin-medium body with medium high carbonation.

O - Fairly good beer, a nice new brew in the Guinness/Smithwick's line giving a little more depth to their selection. I actually much prefer this to Smithwick's red. (723 characters)
