The look of this beer is unusual It is the brightest clearest yellow/gold with a pure white head and the most bubbles I have ever seen.It all looks to a computer generated image of an enticing beer Wierd stuff.
The smell is off putting chemically water
The taste is stock standard bitter water with the vaguest of malt backgrounds.The more of the glass you had the less flavour there was to back up the bitterness.
It is not awful nor has it any merits to recommend it beyond being thirst quenching on a very hot day.But as there are many beers that do this AND add flavour it is hard to recommend it

even worse than the regular XXXX, this is a midstrenghth brew (3.5% ABV), and it sure as hell tastes like it, very weak, chemically and watery, most beers are better than this, too light for me.
