GT2 (8741) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUN 25, 2009
650 mL. Pours a deep gold with a short lived, fluffy, white head that leaves some spotty lacing. Aroma is apple cider vinegar with metallic and yeasty notes. Taste is dreadful: sweet corn and hints of metal with massive artificial cloying alcohol that provokes a gag reflex. Lots of chemical and artificial notes. Yuck.

ilherps (248) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2009
The beer has a appley, champagne-y quality to it, very yeasty. It tastes like bottled cooler water that beer has been chilling in. We shipped them IPA and they ship this back? Unfair

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Pale golden, sparkly, hardly any head. Sweet plastic aromas include coconut oil. Oily palate but oddly enough, finishes clean! Very thin. Exceptionally sweet. Ghastly lack of body. Most of the flavor is at the front of the tongue. Seems chemically and yet is not as bad as I expected.

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2008
Golden-straw colour. The head disappeared. The appley nose is also sugary. Flat. Tastes like apple, plastic and chemical. Very dirty. There is nothing for the badness to hide behind...a horrid concoction.

bhensonb (11522) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Bottle from John’s Market in Portland, OR. Light orange tinged gold color with a white head that promptly dissipated. A medium malty aroma with a possible hint of grassy hop. Near medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is strong pale palt with a touch of wheat and very little grassy bitter. It is smooth and drinkable - almost having an aged in the wood note. Could use a bit more hop.

nick76 (4258) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2008
The aroma is sweet malt, citrus, soap, and flowers. The appearance is pale gold with an average head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is smooth but thin. I donít think this is that good.

Palidor19 (2998) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2008
This is a guilty pleasure beer, despite my low rating, I think this a beer I can drink on days from rough days. its got some flavors of corn and high alcohol. more like a fancier version of a malt liquor. Iíll drink it.

jobyone (234) - Charlotte, USA - APR 11, 2008
Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma is sweet. Taste is sweet with a slight hop flavor. Refreshing and pretty decent for a lager. Went well with the Indian food.

Ibrew2or3 (7091) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 3, 2008
This is my first India beer rating and it is amazing this 650mL bottle at 7% ABV is coming half way across the planet and only costs $2.99 in Florida. Iím certainly glad they didnít bother with a Haywardís 4000 because that would have been just silly. 5000 is the right call, know that.

Pours pale gold with white head. The aroma is faint with sweetness, faint dark fruity esters and mild chemicals. The taste is sugar sweet sugar and cereal followed by floral hops and faint dark fruitiness.
