eduardovl (925) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in a Pilsen glass. A: Pours a very clear gold yellow color forming a medium, white and very bubbled head. Low retention and some thin lacings left in the glass S: Artificial plastic and adjunct malts in the nose. Terrible. Sweet grains and some flowery hops in the end T: Sweet grains. Again, quite artificial in the mouth, tastes like plastic. Adjunct malts, mainly. Light bitterness M: Light body. High carbonation. Adjunct malts aftertaste O: Low drinkability. Disgusting [ BA Review @ 5/15/2014 ]

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2014
The Zimbabwea version shared by CLevar. Pours a clear golden straw colored brew with a fast dissipating white head that leaves behind some spoty lacing. Aroma of creamed corn, floral hops and a hint of honey. Taste is light bodied, semi-sweet with creamed corn and floral hops. Finish is semi-sweet with a touch chalky and husky grain mouthfeel.

Pour out of 12 oz can, thanks Caleb! Clear straw yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of corn, grain, husk, some cereal, wet cardboard, hints of sweet honey. Taste is a mix of corn, grain, husk, some sweet grain, cereal, finishing fairly clean hint of sweetness.
