A cut above the domestic yellow fizzy beers. This beer pours golden with a decent head. Unlike the macro swill this beer has a head that is retained and actually has some lacing. Skunky, hoppy aroma is followed by a skunky flavor with a light dash of hop bitterness. This is one of the beers I will look for at baseball games. Decent.

Overall a good beer I like the flavor, and I like the aroma and appearance. I could drink this almost every night of the week and I usually do.

Diablokev (162) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - MAY 29, 2003
The aroma was a bit sour, and lightly hoppy. The appearance is a clear gold, with a thin bubbly head. The flavor is hoppy, with a slight hint of bubble gum??? The beer is crisp and clean. Overall average at best.

Yellow, head dissipated quickly. Slightly sweet with a dry finish. Mass produced + heavily advertised = less than average beer.

one of my preferred beers- i didnt like it at first, but alot of my buddies drink it so i bummed beers off of them and eventually developed a taste for it. when i want a heineken, there is nothing that can beat it. also one of the more overpriced beers, here in NC it goes up to 14.99 a 12, which is rediculous, however i got me one tonight for 9.99 :) needless to say i am enjoying it.

If its 100% barley, why does it taste like corn? If Stella Artois is the Bud of Belgium, this one is the Bud of Europe. Once considered a super-premium import here, it now ranks much lower thanks to our rising sophistication. Boring, bland and uninspired.

A safe bet lager that can be a welcome sight if confronted with no 'proper' beer and a row of uninspiring looking tap heads in a dark and dinghy late night establishment. It is actually pretty refreshing, and definitely a notch up from most of the other common pub lager staples.

Spitty (5) - ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2003 does not count
Another mass produced lager, the kind of drink you have with a few mates if you know your going to be in the pub a good while. Not too intoxicating and rather refreshing

I'ts just an ok beer. Not remarkable. This is slighty better than mass produced largers. The taste is kinda refreshing.

Very light flavour, okay for a light cheap beer, but unfortunately - it's not that cheap. Average white head fully diminishes leaving no lacing. Very soft and watery, has a weak start, and an even weaker finish. Better than some other yellow beers, but there are better choices out there.
