Bendrixian (988) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 14, 2014
Can. Super clear brew with a slight golden colour. Muted aroma of sweet corn and a hint of grass. No flavour to speak of except for sweets and a grain. no finish and as expected, terrible.

Bottle. Looks like cats piss. Tastes like sugary malt cordial from the supermarket aisle home brewing kit. Lucky it was ice cold.

Botella de 33 cl, adquirida El Corte Ingles. Color dorado. Sabor a malta, extremadamente suave. Una lager comercial de baja calidad.

patricks110 (1582) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 8, 2014
How do they brew the urine into the can. The pour is a bland yellow with a soapy white head. The nose is grainy amd a bit skunked with no hops. Mild cereal flavour with grass notes.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a super light golden body with a small white head that lasted less than five seconds, some carbonation is seen rising, barely any lacing is left. The smell had a mix of barley and some sort of cooked vegetable. The taste had a cooked vegetable along with rice, but that’s about it. On the palate, it sat light, sweet aftertaste and finish, very sessionable, carbonation was definitely felt. Overall, for the cheaper beers, I would say this would have the advantage over the Miller’s and the Buds. I didn’t taste any of that metallic feel in it. I would have this again preferably with food. Just a typical average non-offensive AAL that can’t compete with non BMC stuff (good for what it is).

Muggus69 (1108) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - MAR 27, 2014
355mL bottle 4.2%alc/vol Very pale, insipid, straw-coloured body. Clear, big bubbles, practically no head. No much on the nose; corny malts, bit of DMS, and minerality. Coarse carbonation, light on the body, watery. Very little to talk about going on here. What is here is pretty ordinary - corny, ricey malt character, decidedly skunky. Next to no bitterness. Hardly beer, at all. Not good, at all.

Backlog. Pours pale yellow. Nose and taste of corn water, sweet corn and light metallic grain. Watery thin.

Beerhunter111 (5300) - Hasborn, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein hell goldgelbes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch ganz leicht malzig, getreidig. Geschmack sehr wässrig, minimal malzig, getreidig, ganz leicht herb.

lotsalaughs (119) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
cooked vegetables, citrus, pale, clear, minimal head, white foam, heavy cloying sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, lively No stars. Sickly sweet fizz. Hard to believe this an original to be proud of. Was there always junk in it? Piss water defined.

Sledutah (4109) - Utah, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Stubby 12oz bottle labeled "Banquet" picked up at the local grocery store
Clear light golden, small white head, no lacing. Aroma and taste of corn, grainy, honey and plastic
Something about Coors is just bad. A long time before I knew what real beer was all about I didn’t like Coors. Footbalmed.
