2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at home from notes 2011. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor had sweet grainy malt, corn, skunky notes, faded hops, a hint of floral, very mild bitterness, dry finish. Not very good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: Sweet and corn puffy with a whiff of something that almost reminds me of a pear liquer. Appearance: Royal gold with a white head that settles into a bubbly ring. Flavor: Spirit-like, and fruitier than any lager should be with some weird pear esters; corn sweetness is there, but it’s not unpalatable. Alcohol lets it’s Russian flag fly. Palate: Full body, thick texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Hard to rate this by the numbers; it’s a pretty poor lager overall, but is pretty cheap and fills your need for something a little more stiff. And, really, I didn’t find myself saying "this is terrible" but rather "I like this more than I want to admit." My rating reflects the latter.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml. can from Kyoto Yamaya. Strongish sweet malt nose, with light alc. fumes. Clear pale straw, thick fluffy white head, good lace. Sweet fruity initial, peaches, carrot juice, white wine, grain serious alc. warmth, very little bittering. Thin-medium body. Heavy duty grainy stuff. Overall, not so good. A beer that you feel rather too quickly, without any compensating flavors to make it worthwhile.

Poured at tasting with 2 others and I was the only one brave enough to swallow. Pale yellow with a weak white "head" little to no aroma and taste was same. Terrible, drain pour.

Can sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond Shop. Thanks DSG for a superb 2K rate!!! Clear pale gold with white wave. Sugary and a little metallic aroma, nasty metallic taste with some artificial chocolate. Light-to-medium body with some sweetness in the end.
