A 500ml can with a BB of Oct 2012. Picked up dirt cheap from an off-licence. Brewed in the UK, though the brand can be found world-wide.

Poured into a straight pint glass. A clear pale-gold colour with good carbonation. Forms a small head of white foam that dissipates rapidly. Weak aroma of light malt with hints of stewed leaves and overcooked veg/DMS. An initial metallic note was present, though this disappeared after a moment.

Tastes of light malt with a dry finish. Notes of faint noble hops, stewed leaves and overdone veggies. Dry, with a crisp, mild bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is tingly and dry, but thin and watery. Slightly astringent, with an aftertaste of mild stewed hop bitterness and veg.

Meh - not very good; a subpar mass-produced lager. Bland and watery, with some vaguely unpleasant off-notes. The low ABV leaves it without a sense of purpose; you can't even use it to get trashed. The only thing going for it is the price. Not recommended - avoid.

This very cheap beer was poured into a pint glass from a 500 mL can (I consumed the remaining portion straight from the can). It poured a typical gold colour and formed a nearly 2 inch bone-white head. It looked pretty good so far for such a cheap beer.

The smell was pretty typical of cheap beer. Cheap pilsner type of smell. Nothing notable.

The taste was fairly bland as well, but with a pleasant hop taste. They didn't skimp on hops and they didn't overdo it either. That made this beer surprisingly enjoyable despite its low alcohol content. The beer was a bit thin, but considering the 2.8% alcohol content, it was really pretty impressively not thin. The flavour and carbonation level were spot-on enough that I didn't really mind the low alcohol content. Definitely not a bad beer for the money, but still nothing interesting either. I bought it out of curiosity and I'd normally prefer to spend more and get a better beer since this one's not interesting and the low alcohol content means that it's useless for cheap get-you-drunk beer.

440 mL can poured into a pint glass tumbler (also had one straight from the can).

A: yellow--not too thin, but not really amber either, decent head that dissipates quickly but leave some amount of lacing

S: nothing too distinct, mild pilsner smell (which always smells just slightly like garden peas to me for some reason)

T: much better than I expected to be honest for such a cheap lager

M: nice carbonation and bite--great lawnmower beer

O: for a freakin' cheap lager, this is about as good as it gets. I'd definitely get this again at £2.96 for a four-pack. And at 3.0 ABV it's highly drinkable.

Serving type: can
