skunk flavored beer, surprised i havenít reviewed this earlier. It is like a watered down heineken and the flavor remains the same. Offensive aroma and slightly drinkable

Bottle. Pours a clear very pale straw body with a one finger fizzy white head that actually had a bit of retention. The nose screams green bottle Euro Lager from a foot away. Slightly skunky and grassy with a touch of hop extract. The flavor is very watery, but itís not especially offensive in any way. Thereís just a light bit of bready malt, some grassiness, minimal bitterness on the finish, and a light lingering sulphur laced note on the back end as well. Very light bodied and watery with fizzy prickly carbonation. Iíve had a lot worse when it comes to Pale Lagers.

12 oz bottle pours golden with a white head. Aroma and taste are basically malt and grain.

12oz bottle. Pours a light yellow color with small fizzy white head. Aromas of light malt, skunky, with some corn. Flavor is watered down!

Boring and flavourless. Just to have it after too much sun. Some golden feaures and nice foam only.

12oz can, shared with b3shine. Clear pale yellow color. Actually has a thin white head that retains a bit, leaves little loose lace. White bread nose. Soft carbonation, light body. Clean, lightly salty, kind of tangy sweet, light bitter taste. Not offensive, though no much there either. Light lemon. Not much going on here, but really canít find much to fault it on. If youíre looking for a light lager, you could do much worse than this, I think.

Can to taster (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks solid; a transparent gold with white lacing. Smells doughy and skunky (although not in a bad way). Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid light beer.

DCLawyer (1358) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Summer garden party beer. Pale yellow, white head, minimal aroma and taste, but what there is, is not good. Corn, skunky grains, and malt. Only drink if it would be impolite to decline.

Chudwick (1965) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - JAN 21, 2013
12oz can - this rating is worth the 50cents though I would have never bought this beer if not for ratebeer. pour pale yellow with quickly diminishing white head and thin lacing. Nose is corn/grain. Flavor adds water. light. Light bitterness.

mile (2853) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 17, 2013
Can. Light golden, small and fully diminishing head. Light, malty - some corn and sweetish aroma. Body is light, malty - some corn and sweetish flavor. Finish is short, malty - some corn and lightly sweetish, light metal and faint hoppyness. Really watery lager - no good.
