UPDATED: APR 4, 2014 Your basic Euro pale lager. Not much to speak of in the nose. Subtly sweet grainy flavor, faint hops. Easy to go a few rounds with this one.

12oz bottle. Pours a sparkling golden color with fizzy white head. Aroma is dominated by grain. Grainy malt flavor, thin texture. Crisp finish. Boring and bland.

McNeillR (1140) - SCOTLAND - MAR 20, 2014
Straw golden with terse visible carbonation producing a sizeable and lasting bright white puff of a head. Nose is stale pearl barely pissy, reminds me of exactly what beer smelt like when I was ten. Carbonation clears house palate wise, fizzy and concrete bitterness. Odd creaminess follows, before a malt driven recoil of piss dank straw. Rolls into the ditch with a weird cheap onion/lemon mulch. Reminiscent pint but not in a good way.

Pale in color with light head. A tad skunky for my taste. Fine for half of a Black and Tan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

radio_nowhere (797) - Maryland, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle into pint glass, clear pale yellow color with white head. Aroma of light grain, fresh hay and faint floral/fruity yeast. Taste is pretty much the aroma with notes of corn-like sweetness, slight citrus(lemony) and light hop bitterness. Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp with clean finish. A pretty good pale lager thatís not hiding good light lager characteristics. Not saying the best beer ever, far from, but way better then average US macro.

floydslip (169) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Sandy-colored beer with a fizzy white head of varying sized bubbles. Weak musky nose of generic-smelling hops and not much else. Flavor has a slight bitterness offset by a crisp effervescence, which is really this beerís best quality. Quaffable on a hot day, but standard and totally unexciting.

Golden yellow pour with a fizzy white head. Aroma is cardboard and wet hay. Tastes like a more flavorful version of the American massed produced crap. Corn, malts, and hay. Itís not terrible, but it definitely tasted better when I had it in Ireland. I should have probably left the experience as just a memory. Iíll take it over a Heineken.

Hey guys, it's imported! Transparent golden color; fizzy white bubbles all around. Smells like corn and disappointment, and the taste follows suit.

Palate is about right, tbh. Tastes boring and sweet and corny, absolutely nothing redeeming here. Do people actually like this?

Pours clear light gold with a thin head that falls fast but tired to leave some lace. Sparkling with bubbles rising upwards. Nose is light grain sweetness and fresh cut hay. A bit of floral but not too much and maybe a small whisper of the lemon peel. Sweet grains make up most of the palate and the hops offer a gentle bit of sweet grass. Some tart and weak lemon in the background. Drinks crisp and clean with a bit of bite on the tongue from carbonation and nice drying to the finish.
