There aren't many beers that I am nervous to try, but this may be one of them. It had a questionable appearance straight from the start, with a sloppy bottling job around the mouth of the bottle. Poured into a glass, it was quite bland looking. A boring light yellow color and no head.. Smell was nonexistent and flavor was stale, funky, soured water. Really no other discernible flavors, other than the alcohol which couldn't be covered up due to the lack of flavor. Mouth feel was that of water.

Will not seek out and purchase again.

Would give this a zero if I could. I am not exaggerating when I say that this tastes like Corona Extra and smells like a wet dog. I don't know how this aroma was produced from a beer, but it is awfully unpleasant.

Clear yellow pour with a large white head that eventually fizzles away to a thin layer, leaving a bit of soapy lacing on the glass. Pretty typical adjunct aroma, grains, corn, something resembling light hops. Taste is bland with stale malts, corn, corn sugar, light hops with a lingering bitter skunkiness. Light body, and not very pleasing to any of the senses. There's really no need for beer like this ever.

They've started selling this one all across music venues in London.. Ouch its pretty bad in many ways. Horrible metallic after taste, meaty taste during the pint quite a thick lager as lagers go, tastes a bit like an off Stella. Bad, bad, bad. Better alternatives.
