Taste: Remember the blue cans of Bass Shandy that was about 0.5%? Spicy shandy with added sultanas and bonus fizz. Is that an aftertaste of vegetative matter - a horse radish leaf? What is going on? This ale is made for a well known supermarket and ale law states this should be bad news.... but I'm liking this weird mix. A guilty pleasure!
Appearance: Brown like a good dominos pitch. Foam that is light brown like a pancake batter. A label that is so bad that I'm enjoying it.
Would you buy 2? My calibration may be hay wire, but yes, yes I would.
Would you buy 4? I'm certain I would, and then I would instantly regret it.
