Pours clear light golden color with white head. Floral hop aroma. Moderate malt flavor with a nice hoppiness. Light to medium body with average carbonation. More flavor than I was expecting. Better than most macro plae lagers.

[Bottle, thanks PeterA!] Pours very pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is malt and...well I didnít really get much else. Incredibly simple. The taste is crisp, clean, and doesnít have any off tastes. Actually fairly enjoyable. Quite a long, dry finish and has fairly thin mouthfeel. All in all this was shockingly drinkable, and really not offensive in any way.

(12oz bottle labeled Premium Lager, best by Nov. 2009, 4.7% ABV, thanks PeterA) Small white head atop crystal clear extra pale straw body. Aroma is medium sweet, bread, light melon, straw. Taste is medium sweet, bread, some straw, faint melon. Light clean body. As a "premium lager," this is eminently drinkable. As a pilsner, itís pretty bland. My rating is as the former.

Got this bottle here in Recoleta, Buenos Aires, Argentina at a little liquour store/market (sort of). It was in a cooler and there were only two. I was worried about being light struck and with good reason. It was skunky. Did pour with a nice big foamy, frothy, textured head and lot of lace. Color is a polished brass. As soon as I opened the bottle I smelled skunk. Thereís some corn or rice sweetened beer lurking in there somewhere., but mr. skunk keeps that at bay. Donít think it was really anything special to start out with. Alas, I may never know. I shall cry myself to sleep this night.... or maybe not. Still have a few local micros to absorb. Tally ho!

Hazy gold. Long, soapy head. Aroma: Corn, hops. Flavor: Corn, hops, malts, hay. Dry finish. Better than expected. I will put it over any Mexican Pale Lager, which isnít saying much but the same goes for most other Pale Lagers.

Wow! it seems every country has their version of an american macro brew. This one however was not awful. Maybe because it was unfamiliar to me. Iím sure people in Japan like Budweiser due to the "exotic" nature as well. I would drink it again, that is for sure.
