Pale, grainy, typical international lager. Not much in the way of bitterness.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grains and some malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes clean.

Marginally better than the Callao Pilsen.cards04, if you’re watching this - prepare for a string of exotic pale lagers :)

355ml can. Yellow pour, clear. Thin white cap. Nose has sweet graininess. Taste has sweet grains, light grass and a touch metallic. Dryish plain finish. Standard carbonation and a light body. A typical international pale lager, not much else to say, pretty much what i expected.

Decent lager, slightly sweeter than most and I think it’d be ever so slightly sickly if you had a few. Slightly metallic aftertaste.

edsspoon (367) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle - pours light amber with a head that tries to form but gets nowhere. Aroma is metallic, vanilla and alcohol. Taste of caramel, sweet malts, light toastiness and spiciness, pretty watery. Medium body, medium to strong carbonation. It’s not very lager-like - okay but very weak and watery.

SDalkoholic (2145) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle from Internacional mercado: Aroma smells awful and smells sort of fruity as if this was apple cider instead of beer. The beer taste just as awful and taste just like a malt drink but with a much flatter carbonation level. It must be old or wasn’t properly bottled because the oxidization has occurred. What a waste of money. I don’t believe I have ever rated a beer so low in scores in my history of my 10 + years as a Ratebeer member despite not being the worst thing I have tasted.
