Ratebeer 2.52/5 19th percentile
Beer Advocate C+

The need to include a photo is lacking; almost every beer drinker recognizes their distinctive bottle.

Taste +3

This infamous beer was sampled on tap at Clive's Lounge. I was not expecting much because the nose was barely noticeable, maybe a slight iceberg lettuce aroma. The very carbonated, light-medium mouthfeel brew gave a greater mineral flavour than expected. Luckily the grasses, straw and spicy hops came up strong to round out the taste.

Aftertaste +1

It was a clean ending, but a slightly soapy residue coating on the tongue. This was good for a lager.

Alcohol Content 0 5%

Value 0

This was a good beer, but not worth a repeat purchase.

Ingame Enhancement 0

On the walk home from Canoe Club I stopped into Clives for a quick pint.

Overall 4/10

This is a good lager and deserves to be tried once. I would try to avoid the green bottles; many reviews on ratebeer mention the word 'skunk'. Perhaps the can or on tap would be a better option.
