Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - APR 28, 2005
I am going against the grain here by stating that I enjoyed this beer. I found it to be well presented in the glass as most beers tend to be but the nose and flavour were surprsing. Goodmaltiness and a real crispness that surpassses most of the Euro pale lagers. Subtly dry in the finish and the sort of beer that would be a welcome accompaniment to a barbecue or some fresh shellfish.

hotstuff (4236) - Indiana, USA - APR 23, 2005
Bottle. Poured a small sized white head, sparse lacing, fine-small sized bubbles, cloudy, carbonated, and a straw yellow hue. Malty, hoppy, sweet aroma. Flavor was malty. Tingly mouthfeel. Light body.

ancherrera (162) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Just a regular lager.,.. from Spain. Hoppy, lots of carbonation. Not much malt. Light, refreshing, if you like Bud/Coors/Miller you can drink this and pretend you like real berr... hell it’s from Europe isn’t it?

bluevegie (3059) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2005
Yes presentation is fine but it doesn’t get any better after that. I don’t know what selected hops they chose to put in this cos all I can pick up is the malt and the maize.

Cornfield (5521) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2005 This is a fine looking brew, but then you’re left with your basic dead skunk in the middle of the road, and it’s stinking to high heavens.

Hendo (110) - Sint Anthonis, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2005
This probably tasted better for me because I was drinking it in a Tapas Bar last night. But yeah it’s not very inspiring,however you can taste the maize in it.

fiulijn (15060) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2005
Blond color. Some malty aroma and bready taste, quite high bitterness. Ordinary and not particularly interesting. Sweeter than the average South European Lager.

skaughty (647) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 30, 2004
Yep. We have a (paper bag) dry and mildly hoppy lager here. As far as adjuncts go, I’ll take the corn in this one over rice any day.

(Bottle) Pours a clear pale yellow color with an average-sized white head. Nose of toasted grain. Bitter finish. Lightly sweet malt flaovor with some hops.
