Bottle. A clear, quite pale golden beer with a small, white head. The aroma is fruity and grainy with a touch of rice cooking water. Rather rice-ish flavor, with grains, apples and pears and the vaguest bitterness. Thin on the palate, with a soft carbonation. Semi-dry. Lasting fruity finish. Surprisingly thin, and not very good either. 141219

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 1, 2007
Pale gold colour. Bland bready aroma with light plastic. Watery, with a slight hoppy crispness and more bland bread. Sweetish, inoffensive and that’s the best I can say about it. Thanks, Todd!

GT2 (8741) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 14, 2009
650 mL bottle in Kathmandu, Nepal. This is by far the beer of choice when in Nepal. It is not that different from Nepal Ice or Everest, but it is the better of the three. Pours a clear gold with lots of carbonation and a short-lived, white head that leaves some very faint lacing. Aroma is tonic water, lemongrass, sweet corn, and cereal. Taste is likewise but has a faint cherry juice component that perhaps I’m just imagining. Sweet finish. Not so bad but I can’t wait to get back to real beer.

jredmond (5624) - Manhattan, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle courtesy of (zdk or Paul??) at the Daduary 2013 tasting. Barely remember this, but it wasn’t as awful as the label leads you to believe. Light lagery notes, slightly grainy, malty, grassy, spice and a touch of lemongrass.
