Flavor is heavy malt (grainy, hay, straw, meal), light hops (spicy), and light esters (fruity). Light body, low warmth and creaminess, medium carbonation with a dry finish.

AndyReynolds (984) - Dayton, Kentucky, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Bottle. A little skunky, but there is a weird spice note to it. Kinda dry for a pilsner. Not anything I would drink on a regular basis.

delnoche (465) - Alamogordo, New Mexico, USA - AUG 24, 2010
33cl bottle served in a juice glass (in a Mediterranean restaurant in Paris). Sparkling gold with minimal white head. Aroma is sweet malt and corn. Flavor is the same with a slightly bitter finish. Watery. Typical macro.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2010
330ml bottle. pours a slightly darker than generic macro colour with medium white head that leaves an impressive lace (for what it is). Smells like wet hay and old socks with a weird chemical note on the side. Tastes slightly of apples and general green bottle oddness. A little tingly on the tongue.

Spab (2641) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2010
330 ml bottle from Premier Wine & Spirits (Halifax). Pours a clear yellowish gold with virtually non-existent white head. Rather skunky aroma of grains, corn and grass. Fairly thin body, not much finish, fizzy carbonation. Eminently forgettable.

jodah52 (210) - Michigan, USA - AUG 3, 2010
Pale yellow, small white head. Aromas of faint malt, a touch of skunky hops right as it opens. Very light flavor and mouthfeel, effervescent. Refreshing, boring; about like a Canadian macropils.

puboflyons (2312) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 1, 2010
From the 11.2 fl. oz bottle with no expiration or bottling date. It poiurs from the green bottle a pale yellow with good clarity and fizzy, lively carbonated head. It has the look of a US macro. The aroma tends to be malty and bready but also a tad on the stale side.The body is light. The taste has a kind if bready, malty character but it really seems like it is missing something. It just had this kind of staleness to it. It could have been the bottle I had. I suppose in the hot climate of Lebanon it is fairly refreshing.

Gethinbeer (2231) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2010
Clear golden colour with a thin white lace. Medium carbonation. Skunk malt aroma and rather sweet. Thin texture, the skunk malt aroma feeds into the flavour. Not a pleasant beer.

wimpie133 (380) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2010
Bottle, 33 cl. Golden-blond beer, bubbles, little head. Aroma of grains, light hops and light malts. Taste is grainy, light hoppy, light sweet and malty. Very drinkable beer. Why drink Heineken if Heineken brew a much better beer in Lebanon?
