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.

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.

Yucky nose and flavor.When poured, this beer had a medium sized white head with fine-small bubbles that quickly dissipated.The body was clear and uncarbonated with a yellow hue.The nose was malty, hoppy and skunky.The flavor was just yucky tasting.There was no lacing with this beer.

The salesman at the local high volume beer store recommended this as something different. It poured with a small head which dissipated to a small necklace. The smell was mild with a light green tea colour. The taste was, well skunky, reminiscent of the beers of my youth that I would hide outside for a couple of days and drink warm. Not recommended.

12oz bottle from Trader's Joe. Pours light straw hue with a thick,long lasting, white head and soda like carbonation. Nose is of medicine and grain. Light, crisp body. Taste is sweet corn and lemonade. Short, light finish. Thanks god I bought only one bottle.
