Shaftebury Four Twenty Brilliant Lager and zombie crows

Flavius:This was an impulse buy at a lower end CBAW. I also bought a Canadian Cold Shots; a new personal low for myself. The best part was both beers cost me under $5.
Meterman: I can not believe you bought beer in a Red Bull can.
F: I'm a sucker for fun flashing packaging
M: You are just like a @#$@#$ crow! You know that!
F: I prefer to say easily visually enticed.
M: Hey, let me drop this flashing red LED on the floor..
F: OH OH OH, what is this ..soo cool, must have it..
M: great a zombie crow.

Shaftebury Four Twenty Brilliant Lager

Ratebeer 2.43 15th percentile
Beer Advocate B- WTF?? B-

Taste 0

The nose was very faint, maybe cream corn, grass and maraschino cherry sweetness. The taste was very hollow but much like the nose. There were hints of honey, grains and grass. A very tasteless beer.

Aftertaste -1

It was very dry and clean, but left a residual bitter aftertaste. I enjoy a bitter aftertaste when there is initial flavour to warrant it.

Alcohol Content 0 5%

Value 0

Although it was $3 for 473ml, I still wouldn't buy it again.

Ingame Enhancement +1

It does provide ethanol that is unobtrusive to gameplay. It says 'no preservatives' on the can; perhaps they should have added some to give it flavour.

Overall 0/10 BLECK

Maybe a summer beer. Only if they are sold out of Corona and every other kind of beer, including Old English!
