Not bad, not exquisit. Let’s say it’s a home made beer with macro atteempts. Creamy and a little sour.

Bottle. Pours clear, pale gold with a thin, filmy wite head. Strong sugar and grain aroma. Flavor is mild, which is probably a good thing. Some cereal and corn notes arrive. Light in body with crisp, sharp carbonation. Finishes lightly sweet with lingering sweetness. Not that bad.

~Grainy sweet malt aroma, low hops if any detected.
~Pours a clear pale gold color, with small diminishing creamy white head.
~Sweet malty grainy flavor, I’m thinking rice adjuncts as it has similar taste to Japanese lagers, but could be corn. low to no hops. Balance towards malts.
~Medium light bodied, high CO2, refreshing and smooth. Sweet finish.
~I was pleasantly surprised by this. I am not a fan of designer labels and figured this would be a shitty beer marketed well with a well known designer. Pretty decent lager. It is a bit sweet and think i would have massive hangover if I drank lots of these.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rather nice leathery or mild old blast furnace slag aroma. From a 12 0z pop top bottle. Crisp and clean looking pale american lager appearance. Seems a little viscous, no that must be my lager imagination. Very nice creamy tingling carbonation on the first hit. Well behaved pale lager initial attributes. Some processed after taste following each slug, but not too bad. Another big gulp and its still well mannered. Finish is ok except for the slight processed linger. Yes, certainly your typical premium beer! heheh, Reminds me of something I’d get from lion brewing so I guess its no coincidence there is a tiger on the label.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2009 The bottle I had was called Ed Hardy Premium Lager by Christian Aufnager (or something like that). A bit of cheese in the aroma. Brass-gold pour. Honey malt sweetness dominates the flavor, with diacetyl too, pretty sugary and fizzy. Maybe some lime would have improved it. I did not realize that this was a Mexican brewery’s attempt to fool people (like me, I admit) into thinking that they have purchased an English or German beer. Pretty decent tho, I did not think it was as bad as a lot of raters did.

Pours a clear pale golden with a spotty-lacing small froth of white head. Aroma of pale malt with some grassy herbal hop notes and a hint of light fruits. Starts with a light malty sweetness and a touch of grainy character with soft maize and bland hop balance. Has decent body for the style and doesn’t really have any off-flavors. Pretty smooth and very drinkable, just nothing to get too excited about.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light gold body with a very thin white head. Sweet, almost artificial-like odor. Not exactly inviting but not repelling, either. Pretty thin palate with decent carbonation. Fairly sweet flavor with corn and malt and oddly a touch of butter. Not a drain pour by any means, but nothing exciting at all.

The aroma is weak with corn malt quality and grassy hops. The appearance is pale gold with a smaller head. The taste is inoffensive and refreshing with a malt base. The palate is smooth from carbonation. There is nothing great here but overall an underrated beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle. Clear gold with a lasting white head. Light malt and corn aroma with some mineral and dough. The flavor is sweet but not much malt comes through, and zero hops. Bitterness is about as low as detectable. The mouthfeel is light and a bit sticky in reality. Eh, not really that bad but another boring mexican lager. At least it has some flavor compared to light american beers, but that’s abut all the good will I can bestow upon it.

Bottle from the Utah State Store. Pours a clear yellow color with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet corn, malt. The flavor is a fizzy corn and malty sweet mix. Drinkable for sure. Not bad, not too good.
