1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Better than most domestics, but still not good enough to try again. The only things that suck out in my mind were the carbonation and the ugly yellow colour. I honestly don’t have much more to say than that.

high carbonation, and balanced maltiness. gold in colour, with rice and slight citrus tastse attacking the tongue right off the start. finishes crisp and clean. Very refreshing and great with any japanese food (go figure)
For a macro brew, this one tops my charts!

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.

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.
