Stefano (1952) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2006
Super thin-watery pour and appearance; quickly dissipating thin white head. Nasty aroma of corn, wheat, and grain. Unrealistically thin mouthfeel. I feel like I could chug these all day and not feel anything!

A crisp, refreshing beer. One of my favorite selections while eating sushi. I don’t usually have it unless I am enjoying Japanese cuisine.

To "rate" this beer, to me, is like a food critic reviewing Mac ’n’ Cheese. A bad sign in a beer is when, after 10 minutes tops, it runs out of carbonation ... Corn and rice are here put to their most efficient and inoffensive use, synthesized rather than brewed into a pale, yellow fizzwater.

bubbleflubber (2154) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 19, 2006
Not a great offering here. It begins with a flat straw pour. The nose is somewhat macro and skunk equally. The flavor is peppery skunk and huge corn notes. The finish is purely macro corn(ish), with a poor hop contingency to boot. The mouthfeel is watery and overcarbonated.... again, not a top-shelf brew.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2006
341ml Bottle: Huzzah, another pale lager for me to rate poorly. I know I shouldn’t judge beforehand but what choice do I have? The pour is boring with light carbonation, pale yellow body, and a head that left quickly; I should have taken its advice. Aroma is AWFUL, like compost and sweet corn. Flavour isn’t much better with that distinct corn-water flavour I’ve come to expect from macro pale lagers. Poor, wouldn’t try it again.

caesar (6482) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2006
Bottled, Leen restaurant, Utrecht. Clear yellow color, short head. Typical rice and corn aroma of a bad pale lager. Bit brackish and sharp metallic taste.

Not much here. This went well with the spicy noodle soup I was eating at the time, but at that point, anything wet and cold would have worked. Without the label, I would just assume this was another BMC macro product. This had the same lack of aroma, taste and finish.

yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2006
500ml can, 5% a/v Pours a nice straw colour with a decent white head. The smell is of citrys and malt. The taste consisting of a crisp albeit very watery. Not bad... nothing special though. Id call it a situation beer, IE match it to the situation at hand, such as eating sushi (not to be racist). This isnt an everyday beer

eve (240) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 18, 2006
Pale yellow with a little carbonation, slightly bitter aroma, taste was very bland with a slightly bitter vegetable finish, not much to this but I guess it worked with the sushi as a palate cleanser.
