Advantages: Cheap, smooth, thirst quenching.
Disadvantages: Morning after!
Some may say this is the "cheap and cheerful" option, but I must strongly disagree. Although it is the budget option, it is by far the best you can buy for your money. When I decide to have a drink (as I often do on weekends) this is my preferred larger over the more predominant brands, and another advantage is it goes down smoothly, not wreaking havoc on your stomach an hour or so later. Also the taste is great, it doesn't taste cheap as other budget brands do and seems very smooth and thirst quenching, refreshing you as you drink, unlike other brands that either seem to make you extremely thirsty or just overly bloated.
I would definitely recommend this as a cheap afternoon pint or even as a weekend drink. One problem I have noticed though is the morning after headache, even if you've only had a little to drink. so be warned, although this is the best choice as far as a cheap drink goes, even in some respects better than the more outstanding brands, this does have a nasty kick in the morning at times, no matter how little or much you've had. So one bit of advice: make it a good night!
Summary: A good all-round drink but let down by the hangover. Four stars!
