GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 10, 2008
pours yellow with a tall lasting head. Fruity aromas. Medium nectar with limited carbonation. It’s almost flat. Malty and fruity with some not so desirable flavors. This is bad beer.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - APR 17, 2008
This is a decent, basic lager. It is fairly deep gold with steady bubbles and a medium white head that steadily dissipates to a permanent, very thin foamy top. The aroma is honey, bubblegum, candy, and grain/corn. The taste is a little on the full-bodied side for basic lagers, a bit sweet with a very light bite, but overall rather dry. It has a very light flavour that is mostly apple with a very light grain element and a light, noticeable alcoholic quality. Over time, or as it warms, it develops a very light, odd chemical/soap quality, especially in the finish, which detracts but is not enough to make it unpleasant.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 14, 2008
UPDATED: APR 21, 2013 Aroma of sweet corn. Pours with a small, off-white head covering a golden-yellow body. Sweet taste with lively bubbles.
With a more experienced palate: clear yellow with a quick to fade head. Very cloying aromas of rice, sweet, grain, mild sulfur and DMS. Flavors are very sweet with no hop character (bitterness or flavor), sweet, adjuncts, sulfur, metallic, big DMS. Industrial crap. Blind tasting with Singha: although Singha is not great, you can tell its all malt and at least has some semblance of balance.

ilovedarkbeer (2316) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2008
I was surprised this beer is not that bad. Appy dry taste with some corn. Nose is muted and somewhat stale. Some what a of mild bitter finish. Not bad I was pleased.

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 12, 2008
Pours pale yellow, slightly golden, lots of empty white foam that quickly dissipates to about nil. Lots of bubbling in the beer, heavily carbonated. Smells like some malt and a little bitter hops. Tastes a little bitter, which is a good thing, and then unfortunately like a little adjunt grain (corn). Flavor is slightly sweet. Finish is malty and a little flat.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 8, 2008
It is an asian lager. It worked very well with spicy thai food, and would drink again in the same setting. Obviously nothing special, but gets the job done.

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - APR 6, 2008
...well, I admit I bought it for the ridiculously hilarious name. Light, ricey, not really a head, or any good flavor. Typical asian beer good to wash down hot food. Get Changed!
