Pours a ruby color, with a mild malty aroma. With a hint of hops and soap smell. Above average overall, not a big lager fan, one of the better lagers I’ve had though. Worth a try.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is a spicy, flowery scent at first, a bready malt characteristic , and a smokey roasted nut note on top of it all. Appearance is a semi-translucent reddish/amber color with a medium sized tan head that diminishes into a soapy tan film. Taste is nice malt overtones, with a bit of really bready overtone, a nice medium to robust lager that is really exciting my taste buds. Palate is lightly bitter with a lingering bitterness that fades over time. Overall, A darn good lager in my opinion. Cheers!!

Good lager, cloudy coppy colored, which I thought was interesting. Good lager, but Yueng is still king in my book. Bluengalingalang, that’s what I say.

Pours a clear amber with a tiny white head and not much lacing. The scent was a good balance of hops, malt, floral notes and citrus. A little thin on palate, but not a bad beer for a bbq. A good enough session brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright, clear amber appearance with a large off white head and good lacing. Spicy hop aroma mingles with some toasted malts. Slightly sweet malt taste; hops project more of a floral flavor; bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel. Nicely put together and will go well with most pub grub. Sampled from a can with no metallic off-notes.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear light amber color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma is sweet malt with the slightest hoppiness. The flavor is somewhat muted. Light sweet malts and light hops combine to a forgettable finish. This was an average American lager.
