Though its a pale lager its 100% malt, or so they claim and for the most part it doesnt’ taste as bland as other pale lagers. Medium gold with a frothy, creamy lasting white head. Smells of malt, and cereal with a some lemon sourness in the background. Hops. Medium/thin watery soft carbonated body. Sweet malt with a dry salty finish. Its a clean simple lager. Bit not aweful.

Clean aroma, a touch of Pilsner malt. Bright, clear, sunshine gold color. Some sweetness followed by reasonable bitterness. Not much hop aroma or flavor, but some bitterness, which lingers. Fairly refreshing, but not overly light or watery. Finishes clean.

Para mi creo que la calidad de está cerveza ha bajado. No tiene mucho sabor, antes tomaba esta cerveza con más gusto, ahora la veo igual que la cristal o una heineken. Mucha publicidad por poca cosa.

Shared 640ml bottle. Poured copper coloured and completely flat. Slightly sweet, nothing much else to note. May be a bad bottle but really this wasn’t good

Iphonephan (3963) - McLean, Virginia, USA - MAR 4, 2015
From a 33 cl bottle at a Peruvian restaurant in Lima -- the only beer choice on the menu. Pours a clear gold with a white head. Standard pale lager aromas and taste. Meh.

weordie (212) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Pours golden with a good foamy head. Aroma is absent. Very watery palate. Not really any taste, maybe a hint of malt. Not good, not bad just nothing.

MarkoNm (1088) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 31, 2014
Pours a clear golden color, topped with an average white head. Malty aroma, slightly grainy and little bit skunky - not much there. Taste is sweet, followed by what is a dissastrous body. No bitterness, very sweet and just no... One of the worst ones.
