Costcutter, London (£1.29 for 275ml):
Light straw with touch of gold. There is a thin, half centimetre tall and bubbly head that is bone white in colour.

Corn with cheap lager malts and a strongish alcohol aroma to begin with. There is a few hints of grassy hops and a touch of lemon but there is also a very skunky smell.

A sweet taste but laced with a lot more alcohol than the label suggests. There is some grain and faint lager hops with a biterr kick at the end. Slightly better than the smell but not by much.

Dry with moderate carbonation and a very bitter, alcohol laced feel. There is a citrus tang on top of a very light, thin body.

Very poor cheap. A hard beer to drink with the smell coming across even worse. The only thing it had going in its favour was the touches of grassy hops and lemon but these were overpowered by the skunky taste and smell far too easily. After trying this one I can now understand why most people stopped drinking it years ago.

Drunk from a can, then later from a glass. This was our standard "walking beer" in Scotland and London.

A: Golden with a half finger head that dissipates pretty fast. Some lacing.

S: Citrus-y, yeast, hops. Fresh.

T: A nice clean taste, goes down easy. Lemon, yeast, slight hops. Good malt body.

M: Medium with medium carbonation.

O: I've always been impressed with this easy drinker when in the UK. It's cheap and tastes great. Perfect for seeing the sights while walking...or sitting
