UPDATED: DEC 5, 2013 A light lager. Enjoyable because you can enjoy a few of them in succession without getting too loaded.

12 oz can. Slightly darker than I would expect. Light golden, crystal clear. Head retention worse than seltzer. Aroma of a little sour corn. Pretty boring. Corn up front with a pretty clean finish. A little sweet for such a light beer. I almost actually wish this was a bottle so the skunk would provide another dimension. Not any good, but could be a lot worse.

Bottle left in my fridge by a friend. Clear yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of malt, water and light hop. Malty flavor with some hop, but mostly water.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2013 12 ounce bottle at my sister’s house on Easter Sunday (thanks, sis!). Medium gold hue, large white head that quickly split the scene leaving little lacing, sweet and skunky aroma--and this was from a 12 pack that concealed the green bottle, sweet and sour taste. It is what it is and that’s not a pretty picture, even if it is better than regular Heineken. Tasted on March 31, 2013.

This poured a straw yellow with a white head. Araoma was skunk and grass. Flavor similar, some corn adjunct too. Bad.

One of the light beers that’s totally drinkable. Goes down smooth and doesn’t taste watery. Its better to pour in drinking glass.

1A Pours a crystal clear pale yellow color with a smallish bone white head that shows little retention. Light sweet bready malty pilsner aroma with a whole lot of skunk. The flavor is a light bready grainy maltiness with a hint of hop bitterness and again a bit of mercaptan. Light body with a spritzy level of carbonation and a slick watery mouthfeel. I can’t get away from the skunky aroma to find much to like about this beer, probably a poor example to be a classic style imho.

Bottle. A clear, golden beer with a small, white head. Weak, grainy and lightly fruity aroma with a little cellar hint. Dry and thin on the palate, a bit hard carbonation, but not with a too high level. There’s a faint bitterness in the flavor, really faint actually, with pale malts and some notes of fruityness. Short finish. Nothing interesting going on here. 130903

Bottle- pours a light straw color with a fair head that fades with no real lacing. Aroma is fairly mild with a bit of citrus, malt sweetness and grain. taste of just a bit of citrus with some malt sweetness. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Light body, smooth and short on flavor. A decent non-offensive light beer.
