BeerBiker (1412) - Odense, - JUN 20, 2011
Bottle @ BeerBiker/Scheffel’s 100 countries celebration week (long time ago). In the heat, it could be a nice easy drinkable beer. Could add more hops and it would be an okay beachsnifter!

Light aroma of wheat straw. Visibly bubbly carbonation. Weak flavor of light straw.

10 Apr 2014, bottle. yellow, clear, steady bubbles. nose is almost moldy rice. oddly sweet and weirdly rank. thin body and moderately fizzy. butterscotch candy, wet straw. ugh.

SDalkoholic (2089) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle from North Gate: Liquid appeared pale gold light looking beer typical of domestic "LITE" beers. Small soapy head that fizzed out quickly leaving the lite lager naked. The nose is faint and smells of typical adjuncts found in all cheaply made beers in the same style both imported and made in America. The taste is boring and bland but drinking it from the bottle instead of a cup taste better.

kidmartinek (3303) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Pours golden with a rich hue and a frothy white head with surprising size and longevity. The aroma is pretty good mineral water and some bitterness when the beer is cold but then turns gummy. The flavor starts with adjunct sweet grain, as expected, but this is pleasantly squashed by a welcome bitterness. Too bad the flavor gets a little gummy too as the beer warms.

jtclockwork (7107) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Bottle thanks to Robert Dale. Pours pale yellow with white head. Nose and taste of corn chips, tin metal, harsh grains and sweet corn. A bit offensive and harsh on the palate. Light bodied.

Fratto (2524) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle from Cavie... ... ... Super light pour with a small white head. Aroma is cigarettes and corn. Taste is about the same. Agh.

Cavie (3671) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle from CM. Drank straight from the bottle. Aroma was slightly skunky, grainy, cardboard. Flavor is grainy, grassy, bitter metal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Homer321 (971) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2014
bottle "thanks" to BoostIPA. very clear yellow with minimal white head. holy corn! some sorta weird rice smell in there too. I think some DMS? taste is sickening sweet with no hop bitterness or flavor. Holy cow, this wouldn’t even be good on a hot summer day. Thanks, bro!

JDBaker11058 (1131) - Maryland, USA - DEC 1, 2013
Appearance: clear light gold with one finger of creamy, bright white that lingers quite a bit as it shrinks to a fat collar. Aroma: meh. Taste: meh. Finish: meh. Notes: Other than the appearance, this is a typical sh*tty adjunct lager whose primary selling point was that it afforded me the opportunity to put a pin in my beer map for Honduras. A "life saver" it is not.
