Can on a 95 degree summer day. This tastes like Bud Lightís dirty cousin. It displays its roughness right from the first sip: itís pretty corn heavy and biting, and it has a noticeably skunk flavor. Still, itís one redeeming grace is that it did a pretty good job of cooling me down quickly, so it has that going for it.

sudomorph (1079) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2016
330ml can. Pours a crystal clear light gold with a thin, white head. Aroma has nice notes of traditional hops, grain, and slight sweet caramel. Taste is balanced. Mild hops, sweet grains, and a touch of bitterness at the end. Medium body and carbonation. Clean and refreshing in the mouth with a very slightly dry finish. Overall pretty macro but ok for what it is.

darbeer75 (437) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - APR 17, 2016
Aroma: corny lager; not pleasant; Appearance; pale golden straw with invisible head; Taste: first micro second is lager but then disintegrates into sickeningly sweet finish; Palate: light bodied with thankfully short finish. Overall: never again.

Cimbasso (709) - - APR 13, 2016
Bottle from Beers of Europe. A clear yellow gold with a white head. Quite heavily carbonated. Corn syrup sweetness with some grassy notes. Not really any bitterness or hop taste. Not bad for a hot-climate lager, but not great.

gregwilsonstl (2062) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 31, 2015
Looks like urine. No head. Tastes like a corona with sweet mushy corn added. Better than a lot of lagers, but so sweet. Not getting any hop action at all. Brought back from Jamaica. Iíve had worse.

Rubin77 (916) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 26, 2015
F: white, average, not long lasting. C: yellow, clear. A: malty, some grassy hops, almost nothing more. T: malty, some sweetness, decent bitterness on the palate, reminds me of sweet american lagers, medium to thin body, average carbo, nothing special, 0,33l bottle from Carrefour in Gwadeloupe.
