beeebon (172) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2014
Pours a pale golden colour with small white head which quickly vanishes. Not much to pick up from the smell, malt and a bit of grass. Taste is pretty much similar to the aroma. It’s an easy drinking lager, nothing horrible about it at all but nothing special.

reebtogi (4151) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
330ml bottle pours a golden color with a finger of white head that dissipates quite quickly leaving only a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light grains and malts. Taste is malty sweet with a grassy bitterness. Typical brew for the style, nothing special.

klaing (116) - Florida, USA - JAN 5, 2014
Pours a light orange gold, little head. Taste is a simple light honey with a little bit of a tang. Nice when you compare it with the standard yuck from the northern continental breweries. Better served very cold and fresh. Will deteriorate quickly with age. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kaser (2624) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Poured from bottle at Los Amigos in Jaco Costa Rica. Dark golden pour with thin white head. Has an off taste to it, maybe skunked. Malts and Carmel notes. Pretty blah.
