If they made water with alcohol content, then Id choose the water over this. Bland, boring and a waste of good malt!

It is a beautiful golden lager with large coarse foam. The taste is malty and hoppy as expected, but rather synthetic on the boring way. It is metallic (maybe not so strange when it comes from a can) and completely forgettable as lager. Sadly such thing is being brewed, but it lived up to what I had expected, namely to be boring and anonymous.

futre7 (202) - Taipei, TAIWAN - AUG 8, 2015
Bought from RT Mart in Taipei. Light and generic lager. Nose is a little like Fosters and head is a frothy white. Lightly carbonated with a light malt and grain flavour. Thirst quenching yet unspectacular. Sort of a cross between Fosters and Carling....overall though I wouldn’t buy it again unless it was free.

AlexCorleone (9) - ITALY - APR 23, 2015 does not count
A. Pours a golden colour with decent snowy head of sparse bubbles that sinks pretty steadily. Bead is thin, but steady. Lacing left as rings of white foam. Looks nice. S. Pungent, with a kind of corn sweetness and a whiff of barley. A slight isoamile acetate (bannana gum like Heineken) and some slightly medicinal hop phenols. Has a sourness to it, slightly citric, maybe a bit bready, like undercooked dough. T. Bannana and sourness, but ultimately seems sweet. Aspects of lolly water and a bit of a saline character almost like seawater. A bit of a chemical aspect and quite savoury on the mid-palate, like a crackery malt flavour. Tartness comes through on front and back AT. Mouthfeel is slightly textured with a hint of tingle, but mostly watery, a little bit thicker than your average lager though.

vickey9 (966) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 18, 2015
Dark golden yellow clear with small off-white head that dissipated quickly. Nose is fruity and sweet. Light carbonation almost flat. Watery body. Taste is rather sweet and a bit sour. Palate is dominated by malts, fruits and vaporizing alcohol. C@H

Alengrin (4148) - BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2015
Poured into a lager glass from a can years ago so rating from old notes. Cristal clear yellowish blonde with thin, snow white head; grainy, slightly malt sweet, some corn, metallic with thin body, hint of herbal hop bitterishness in the finish, brief. Neutral and completely lacking in character but non-offensive.

Danev76 (505) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 14, 2014
Slightly fruity aroma. Clear golden colour with poor head. Fruity flavor with nice finish. Medium to low carbonation with a light body.

OLD NOTES OCT 9, 2003 Very cheap, very easy. Not much to it really. Quite watery compared to even most other European lager.
