1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
(633 ml bottle: $2.39 at BevMo in La Jolla, CA) Blecht, paper products in liquid form. Only mildly sweet, not even a hint of hoppy bitterness, not really even a grainy flavor. It just tastes like cardboard. The beerís aroma is very light grain, but it definitely smells less like paper than it tastes. Body is light and carbonation is ample, but without that clean lager taste, the beer just sits like a dead weight on the palate. The strong point of this beer is how nice it looks in a glass. Pale golden, super clear, unrelenting streams of rising carbonation bubbles, and a tall, white head, it doesnít get much better than this. With better retention (it fades to a filmy layer), and more than a wisp of lacing, it would be perfect. So pour the beer into a nice glass, admire itís beauty, then dump it down the sink because the flavor is awful, even when ice cold.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml Bottle, Canadian, 4.6ļ Flat yellow color, surprisingly with no bubbles. Frothy white head that disappears very quickly though leaving a fair lacing. Aroma is very weak with hints of corn and soap. The flavor is sweet with notes of asparagus, unidentifiable vegetables and corn syroup (eeeewww). The body is light and the carbonation is extremely flat for the style.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2007 Re-Rate:
Can, 330 ml: Ok, this is more like it. A crisp, decent macro pale lager. You can feel the malty, bready and cereally flavors. Not much hops there, but I wasnít expecting any. Not exciting in any way but drinkable.
Original Rating: 2/2/2/1/4 = 1.1.
Bottle at Sicosis. Brewed in Canada
Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white fizzy and rapidly diminishing head. It leaves a small lacing.
Aroma shows corn syrup, clear adjuncts with some distinct macro-lager malt and minimal hops. There are notes of straw and cereals like rice, vegetables and soap. Weak.
Flavor is pretty bad. Sweet corn syrup with asparagus. No hops present. There are also touches of dough and paper.
This is extremely watery and flavorless. Not as dry as the label says. Short finish. No aftertaste. Thatís it? Bad Lager. Maybe I had a bad bottle.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Another pale lager goes down the pipe, through the liver, and out the, well, you know. Appearance was pale yellow, ok head, weak lacing. Aroma was adjunct lade, rice or corn. The flavor was malty sweet, same old same old, Japanese Budweiser. Mouthfeel average (if not heavy for the style), carbonated.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Served in a bottle. so canít comment on appearance. fizzy on the tongue, too much fizz to distinquish any complex flavors if they are there.
Strange, I used to like this type of beer.
When all is said and done: VERY WATERY.

....How did I miss this one? Iíve had this several times, this completely blows soporro and tsing tao out of the water so I drink this on occasion at work when itís hot and busy. A typical pale lager, clean, lifeless, snappy and refreshing. I guess it has everything that Iím looking for according to big name beers, eh?

some malt taste and a a bit sourish taste, "dry" is true, but not much taste,
aftertaste malty, some straw-like flavour,some very hidden, honey-like aftertaste
not really for drinking it for the tasts of itself, a bit boring

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Urine colored body with a light white head. Corn aroma with some very light hops. Sharp and dry taste, rather boring overall. Heavily carbonated ending.
