Straw/piss coloured body with white bubbles clinging for their life on the side of the glass.

There is actually an aroma
There is a slight note of hops and also an ethanol.

There is nothing, I mean, nothing there on the flavour.
It says serve well-chilled probably to hide the only taste presence a metallic tinge it also says a slice of lime, better take that slice, through away the San Miguel and put in a gin and tonic and I HATE G&T.

Fuck all mouthfeel and plenty of fizz.

The antithesis of joy.

A 330ml clear glass bottle with a BB of April 2013. Picked up a while back from a supermarket. Label recommends to serve with a slice of lime.

Poured into a tulip pint glass. A clear pale-gold colour with medium carbonation. Forms a decent head of white foam that lasts for a moment before subsiding. Aroma of light malt with hints of overcooked veg, corn and faint stewed leaves. A harsh sulphurous note lurks in the background. Vile.

Tastes of ultra-light malt with a dry finish. Hints of stewed leaves, corn, overdone veggies and wet cardboard. Harsh, with an acrid solvent-like note upon swallowing. It tastes disgusting. Mouthfeel is thin and watery, like mineral water. Dry and rather astringent, with an aftertaste of harsh stewed leaves/veg.

Horrid. I wish I could call it tasteless, but it's much worse than that. Watery and insipid, with nasty off-flavours that make you wonder what went into it. I can see why the manufacturer advises adding lime; anything to mask the true taste. All but the most avid masochist should avoid this beer.

My daughter takes great delight in finding crap beers she knows I'll never have had before: take a bow daughter!

Clear 330ml bottle poured into a 'La Chouffe' stemmed tulip @ home on 16 Nov 2012 during one of my random tasting evenings.

Looked a typical lager/pilsner: bright, golden and clear, with the usual white head of fading bubbles.

Smells like a lime and lemonade soft drink, taste is simular but with hints of hops and traces of mild malts. Not something for beer geeks, but it might quench a young twerps thirst on a warm sunny day.
