Pours a caramel color. Smell is mild, some malts. Taste is bitter, some hops, not very flavorful. Overall a mediocre beer.

Amber thin beer with not a lot going for it. Aroma is off putting, bitter watery taste lingers longer than you might prefer.

25-ounce can in a pint glass. Terrible, but better than Fostersí lager. Barely.

Can shared at a tasting at the Dancing Camel. Thanks Excellent Little Brother! Clear dark gold with a white head - foamy. Mud, sewer, garbage water aroma, mussy, sewage and a little sweet taste. Light body, vegetal finish.

I didnít have too high of expectations and it probably came in just a little below. Lots of grass and the alcohol seems to come through a little. Itís kind of bitter like a peel or a husk.

Thick boy can from Safeway in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is herbal lozenges and caramels. Taste is grandma-type candies. Sentimental but stale.

Big can for Australia Day 2016. Amber w ok head. Not much aroma. Malt dominates taste. May have some corn adjunct in there too. I had v low expectations and it was a bit better than expected but still pretty generic macro suds ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DSG (10579) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 25, 2016
Can sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks kerenmk. Caramel amber color with an off-white head. Bad aroma of rotten vegetables and graininess. Sweetish flavor with graininess, malt, caramel, a bit of vegetables, sugar, and a slightly bitterish finish, a bit metallic, with an alcohol note. Light-bodied. Bad.

25.4 super can into glass. Not bad at all for $3. Pours a dirty bronze with a super large head, white, full, frothy. Aroma of amber malt, metallic offerings, corn, bread, not cornbread, dry orange squash. Taste of amber malts mainly, tinny under currents of rice, malt, corn. A fine slap of rusted Ginger root comes out if no where, only to be pushed over by metallic offerings. No overall harshness going down, in fact, easy to drink. Took down the can relatively fast and easy. Abv listed at 5/5 is suspect, can offers no listing. Cheers to the first round it is. Easy drinking, fluid in delivery, not too bad of a macro, and cheap.

Pours a golden copper color. Thick, creamy beige head, about three fingers. Pretty good read retention, pretty decent lacing. It is a narrow mouth can, so pouring is hard. Over pouring is easy, so take your time. Wonder what it would look like without the artificial coloring?

Aroma is yeasty, and bready. Light to medium roasted malts. A little wet hay smell in there. I also smell some earty hops.

Taste is medium roasted malt. Itís a little bitter, it kicks in late in the sip. Itís odd, but its satisfying. Thereís a little caramel. But the main characteristic is the bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium. Its semi dry. Quite refreshing, decently drinkable. Yes, itís kind of bitter, but too much so.

Overall, I enjoyed this much more than I thought I I would. I think I would prefer this over most lagers. Iím glad I tried it. I recommend you try it too.
