2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hay, grass, mint, and skunk aroma, very green. Clear yellow, no head. Light malt, lemon prominent at midpalate but present throughout. Not real strong, but tasty. Good for what it is, better than Heineken.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2011 A quirky one. It is almost pilsener-like. It is a surprisingly tasty EPL if you get it fresh and unskunked.

Clearly a Heineken rip-off, which shouldn’t be too hard to screw up, but this one really isn’t too good. Luckily you will drink it fast, without thinking about it too much.

12 oz. bottle- Pours golden with a better than expected head, decent lacing, aroma is a little skunky, but not bad. The flavor is what I expected, Heineken. Average, average, average.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Aroma is not like Heineken, which I was expecting. I was expecting a skunk beer and ended up with a decent smelling Euro lager. This is just the aroma, mind you. Appearnce is as a standard Euro lager--pale gold, little head, average lacing. Tastes like straw, cheap adjuncts; no skunk, surpsringly, given the green bottle. Better than I was expecting, but definitely not great.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Wow, this is a really interesting beer that flies under the radar. It is a spartan brew, and can best be described as cold, clean, and direct. Very smooth and very clean is the beginning. And the finish is the same-- remarkably smooth and clean. The middle is surprisingly complex and unexpected, given how the beer begins. Yes, this brew might be in the same category as Heineken, but it is much smoother and fresher and of higher quality than that middle of the road beer. Straight from the fridge, this beer is very satisfying and almost intriguing.

***review from June 21, 2008***
Another crap beer from the wonderful Beers Around the World mishap. Poured out a crystal clear medium hued solid gold brew, a small white cap, thin ropy lacing and retention just above a skim. The aromas was very dry and quite interesting somehow. Sort of sweet, a large grain content, plastic? and an odd underlying smell. The taste is less than appealing as it is very harsh and very watery with bad hops and a bit of metal. Comes across empty with a weak flavor similar to a light beer. Gassy and foamy too. Slight malt can be found in the aftertaste, which is unsavory. Why bother even finishing this?
