Wow, a "schmiddy" of this at the Cargo bar in celebration of some guy’s Australian citizenship cost 8 bucks. WELCOME DOWN UNDER SON!!! This stuff is terrible without being the absolute pits. Tastes like it’s based on rice malt: very thin and watery...

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
A fools gold color and thin soft fluff head. The aroma will give me a headache if i sniff it anymore. It reminds me of that smell of a carpet after a party and beer bottles and cups laying around everywhere. Flavor has some corn with grass and light malt aftertaste. I’ll admit i do drink this more than i thought cuz its the only thing good at sushi restaurants.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pale golden color, with thin white head. Weak skunky aroma of an american lager. Flavor is better though; corny and weak, but dry and crisp. A refreshing beer, and one that I’d choose over the domestic lites.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Had this one in the bottle, and from what I could tell this was like a classic american light with a bit more flavor. The aroma was pretty bland and devoid of anything memorable. This was an okay beer I guess, though not one that I really think will ever grace my beer shelf again.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
10.17.04 Quart can. Pale yellow pour; massive, craterous head. Some light hops in aroma, mostly boring lager smells. The flavor and palate are practically non-existant featuring only some damp tissue tastes...but the finish is like a whirlpool that sucks any hint of flavor or wetness down the drain. Dry indeed. Flavorless and dry, I’ll give it a couple bonus points for living up to its promise -- but what a strange style. I could’ve done without this one.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml brown bottle. Golden brew, short lasting white head. Aroma a bit skunky. Dryish flavour, corn notes. Just a bit of malt makes an appearance. A little too plain and boring.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The colour is clear, bright yellow. The foam, made of big bubbles dissolves quickly into a thin lid.
The smell is mild and dry with notes of corn and pilsner-malt.
The carbonation is strong, but not too strong, it is very refreshing.
The taste is quite mild, malty and dry with a touch of diacetyl. The aftertaste is somewhat sweet (from the corn) with a tone of wheat flour.
I think this is a pleasant thirst-quenching brew. Uncomplex? Yes, but I think it is a good quality adjunct beer (both corn and rice). This is probably a good selection for really hot Asian food.
The particular bottle that I am reviewing was brewed under license in the Czech Republic.

From can. Actually the largest can ever in the history of cans I think. I mean this is really a 1 liter monster. This seems to be the japanese equivalent of budweiser. Not bad, but not good

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden and heavily carbonated are the first things that come to mind. A tad watery and malty but nothing too significant to suggest. An ok accompaniment to sushi.
