Bottle 0,33l at "Lekteren", Aker Brygge Oslo 19 Apr 09. Bright golden colored. A large creamy white head that lasted. Modest malty and fruity aroma. Flavor is sweet fruity malt. Pleasant fruity aftertaste.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From the World Beer Traveler Beers of the World box this poured light yellow with a medium white head and no lacing. Nose of corn. Light mouthfeel. Flavor of corn though it says it is made with rice and there are a few faint floral tinges in the finish which must come from the hops. This is a most undistinguished beer and like many of its kind should probably be consumed ice cold.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale yellow, large white head.
aroma of creamed corn and not much else.
Taste again is cream of corn, but it does end up relativly clean with even a touch of hop.
Its avergage for style as far as the palte goes.
Rather unimpressed with this.
If I had to have a Far East beer i would take Tiger over this any day

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Pours golden yellow with single finger of fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet grassy funk. Taste is a sickly sweet watery mess until the oddly bitter finish. Not good.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deeper pale golden. Decent head. Some light fruits to smell and some matlyness i guess. Smoothed body with a bit more character than I expect for the style but still not particularly exciting. I guess its worth a try if there isnt much else.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured a watered down yellow colour. Doesnt look very appealing and the little foam that appears quickly dissapears. Doesnt smell of much. Taste of bread and a bit sweet. Works nicely on a street in Bangkok or with some thai food though, so I guess it serves it’s purpose ;)

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pretty poor stuff. Too much rice to generate much of a head. Clear gold, so, of course, almost no head and no lacing whatsover. Pretty minimal aroma. Taste just a little worse than none at all. Thin in the mouth. Some floral notes, not much detectable malt, not much bitterness, not much either pilsner or lager character, and just slightly off from nothing there at all.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml brown bottle. Deep yellow. White head sits low, but has a creamy texture. Hay and malt aroma. Flavour is grain, very light trace of grassy bitterness. Dry finish, some grain and grass notes. Light body, medium carbonation. Pretty basic pale lager, suited for hot weather consumption.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Opened this baby up and it had a very pungent skunky aroma. Pours a clear, almost indiscernible yellow color with high carbonation and a very small yellow head. Flavor is very sweet corn/rice flavor, slight noble hops and then nothing. I find it hard for this beer to offend since there is nothing there really to be offensive. Overall the beer is a bit sweet and lacking hops for my taste but the alcohol is a decent strength and its fairly smooth.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours clear golden with very short lived white head. Smell is light very subtley sweet malt and a hint of a chemically component and some doughiness. Has a bit of a chemically, off taste along with the light malt. Not the cleaneast pale lager and some yeasty flavors show as well. Thin body and normal carbonation. Not one of my preferred pale lagers, but drinkable, and seems to taste better out of the bottle as opposed to poured into a glass.
