Can. From a friend’s cooler--it was this or Natty Light. Piss colored, fizzy and bright. Glorified water.

BeerRenter76 (647) - Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Originally rated on 7/6/08.Pours a light yellow, lightly carbonated body with a thin white head. Thin mouthfeel, a little watery. Aroma was slightly malty, taste of malts and aftertaste almost like old white bread. A below average lager.

tightslice (728) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Big boy can from Safeway in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is slightly metallic, dirty grains. Taste is weak tea water with some tinny bits. Not great.

Strangebrewer (1097) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2016
750ml can. Poured clear gold with a bleach white head. Heavy malty nose. Light body, average carbonation, crisp finish. Sweet malt flavour, earthy and a bit musty, notes of barley, just enough bitterness.

DylansDad (552) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 6, 2016
Slightly more character than the average generic lager: more grain and slightly more hop content. Quite sweet with apple and pear, but this is mitigated somewhat by the spritzy carbonation. Not bad, but one’s enough.

Padchenko (221) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 22, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2016 weak, standard, non-unique lager. Pours yellow with decent white head. Barley malt, hoppy but not to bitter. Drinkable but not much besides.

Flasche und Dose - Goldgelb, wenig Schaum. Ein dünnes Lager mit kaum Eigengeschmack. Daher auch kaum was Falsches. Wässrig.

CanIHave4Beers (3873) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JAN 5, 2016
Neat 32oz can! Neat dining room!
Pours a pale golden color with a medium sized head and decent lacing on the glass.

The aroma is surprisingly yeasty, somewhat sweet smelling, a little malty, a little herbal, a little play dough.

The flavor is surprisingly unique from your typical big biz pale lager, it’s certainly got a herbal hoppy flavor with a low but effective level of bitterness. It’s sweet-ish with a little corniness, but certainly just as much discernible malt character. It’s reasonably clean and yes lightly yeasty/doughy but not in any sort of overwhelmingly annoying way.

This is just fine.

hauxe (261) - Butzbach, GERMANY - DEC 20, 2015
Rated from old notes. Initial sip is foul and malodorous. Can only go up from here, which fortunately it does. Settles into a workmanlike if dull lager with mild bitterness. No worse with food than water.

Gubihumle (537) - Nørre Aaby, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2015
Flaske. Hvordan denne øl har kunnet gå sin sejrsgang over jorden undrer mig. Duft og smag er simpelthen vandet og øllet ser også sådant ud.

Carlowxxx (134) - Carlow, IRELAND - NOV 28, 2015
Pours clear golden yellow with white head. Very grainy and dusty aroma. Light bodied. Sweet flavoured, minor cardboard note and quite watery. Some bitterness in a dry and water finish. Bland.
