Aroma relatively light combination of hops and sweet malt--but nothing remarkable...Appearance fairly standard pale-gold--head light but acceptable. Flavor reveals both decent hop bitterness and some underlying malt, which shows up in the body more than, say, Beck’s. Finish is pretty much a a continuation of the main body--no hidden mysteries here...This is perfectly OK stuff--but falls about in the middle of the field of macro-import lagers...

Is there any other beer that tastes so average yet costs so much?

when I was young I thought this was a great beer(any beer we could get our hands on being under age). But now after drinking a couple of Heineken the distinct after taste stops me from drinking more.

What’s the big deal??? Reminds me of road kill on the transcanada highway. (OK a little to harsh on the beer perhaps but really what is the big deal)

Great taste, definitely worth the money.

NOt that bad for a pilsner, but that’s not saying much. Better than fizzy yellow American beer. Johnny Mac drinks it though, just a thought. Drinkable.

Yeasty aroma with a wee striped varmint hiding in there. Medium-light hopping, crackery, a distinctive lager yeast strain. A somehow puffy palate -- light and mouthy.

Not too bad for a macro-import. Given the choice between this and BudMillCoors I would go for this every time. Great ads!

Better than American macrobrews, but not by much. I agree with other posters this is probably nothing more than a reliable ’fall back’ beer at your local convenience store, but skunkiness remains a persistent problem thanks to the green bottle.
