A 355ml clear glass bottle with a BB of Nov 2012. ABV is stated as 4.5%. It looks just like a bottle of weewee! Acquired from Booths a little while ago.
Poured into a straight pint glass. A clear golden colour with medium carbonation. Forms a small head of white foam that dissipates rapidly. Aroma of light malt with a stale note of overcooked veg/corn and a hint of stewed hops. Faintly sulphurous. Not great.
Tastes of light malt with a mild finish. Hints of stewed hops, corn and overdone veggies. Dry, with a faint bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is watery yet crisp, with tingly carbonation and some astringency. Weak aftertaste of light malt/corn.
Meh - a fairly typical mass-produced adjunct lager. Bland and insubstantial. Drinkable enough if cold refreshment is desired - aims low and hits the target. No need to seek it out.
