MJ's 1999 "Guide" gave this one of 4 stars. Enough said.

Standard pale lagerish look.

Crisp aroma.

Taste is also crisp, though not much going on in terms of flavour.

Now much more to say really...tastes mass produced and obviously not something that can really be appreciated or written about much..!

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.
