floydian1 (916) - FNQ, Australia, - JUL 4, 2010
Bottle. Appearance is clear bright yellow with a brief white head. Weak nose and taste of sweet golden malts and floral hops. Tastes more like a bland Australian macro-lager than a genuine pilsner.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAY 3, 2010
Bottle. Ugly straw color but has decent head retention. Aroma is fresh and mildly hoppy with inviting grass and herbal hops. Palate is lightly sticky and the beer is thin and watery. Sweeter flavors than expected including health cereal and corn flakes. Those hops I smell are not coming out. Not a very well developed beer.

joe19612 (1837) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2009

DeanF (1686) - Nunavut, CANADA - AUG 31, 2009
Smells of bread and not too much else. Has a piss-yellow colour and almost no head. Tastes of hops and water, and goes down incredibly weak. Incredibly forgettable.

Dragonblaze99 (354) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2009
Sweetish aroma. Pale amber with large fast dissipating head. Flavour has slight floral hops with an unpleasant sour undertone from the maize. Medium bodied. Finishes bready. Not very good.

bierslaaf (105) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - MAR 14, 2009
340ml can at Cape Town International airport. Pors crystal clear light yellow with big white mostly diminishing head. Significant lacing on the glass. Aroma is of malt and maize, tha latter I don’t care for. Thin and mostly tasteless with very little finish accept for maybe some kind of soda water taste.
