Pours a straw yellow color with foamy white head. Smell is that of similar lagers, a little bit of hops and malts, grass and rice. Light grassy and slight hop flavors. Thin body and lots of carbonation.

Quite possibly the thinnest beer, I have had. Watery and.... well, watery... Maybe some metal...

Pyobon (1135) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2015
(Can) Clear golden yellow with decent white head. Reasonable aroma - grassy with a hint of petrol. Light bodied and fizzy. Flavour is light malt, a little more sugary than malty, with some grassy / vegetable notes and with detectable bitterness. Overall, I was surprised. It was better than I expected. Tried from a can on a plane, which I think can affect perception of taste.

From a 25.4 oz ’oil can.’ Pours a straw with nice carbonation and fluffy head that dissipates. Nose of corn and rice, possibly. Bitter taste with a hint of aromatic hydrocarbons. Not very good.

piss yellow, borring beer, this is one of the worst mass produced lagers in the world.

Huge can. Pours light yellow, with white head. Aroma and taste are uninteresting and watered down.

beerbaaron (1749) - Arizona, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Pale yellow. Patchy white head. Sweet. Wet old cardboard. Corn. Not good. Mildy offensive. Almost as unpleasant as a malt liquor, but without the bonus alcohol. Overall its fine if you get the urge for some good ol’ swill. Chug it and get it over with quick.

Australia’s most famous lager provide a nice foam when pouring. It smells slightly malty and hoppy and also a delicate aroma of flower. Taste have an appropriate malty fullness and a good long hoppy taste. It leaves no bigger impression than any other good thirst quenching lager would do.

Plechovka 440 ml. Svetlozltá farba, hustá biela pena, slabá nasládlá aróma. Nízka rezkosť, sladkastá chuť, bez náznaku horkosti. Nabudúce jedine v prípade totálnej vyprahnutosti...

Aroma is bland adjunct, sulphur, and honey. Taste follows suit and is pretty bland. Appearance is a clear straw with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.
