Pours a four finger bubbly white head that fades to a thin layer leaving a little lace. Light clear amber color. Light carbonation and light-medium bodied. Piney, grassy nose. Starts nearly balanced just on the hoppy side not finding any sweetness, simple lager, slight soapy aftertaste. $1.65 for a 330ml bottle from Johnís Market Tigard, Or. Best before July 7, 2006 and still okay.

This pale lager pours a light orange gold color from a 330ml bottle. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is grainy, cardboard, wet socks and tape. A medium to light bodied pale lager. Malts are cereal and sweet. Lots of hay and lemongrass. Cardboardy and watery. Tastes better than it smells. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

This beer pours a yellow color with a nearly non-existant white soapy head and no lacing at all! The aroma is all corn and vegetables, specifically asparagus and green beans. Really has a horrific odor of smelly wet socks, cardboard and tape. DRY cardboardy flavor that just rips the tongue apart. CARDBOARD,.,,,box this up and send it to the shit factory! Lemony and honey aftertaste but it is WAY too late to save this from the shithouse. Carbonation is flat.....horrid horrid horrid. I believe this is very Gluek-esque...honey mixed with matricide! So disgustingly dry....

12 oz bottle at Pegasus Cafe in Rancho Bernarno. Light in color and aroma. Not much in the flavor department either. Some light citrus but mostly malt and adjuct flavor. Another attempt to make Americans happy.

Very light aroma - arguably malt. Light gold color. Frothy white head. Starts light malty sweet, sort of thin with a hint of metal at the middle, finishes with light sweetness and a hint of malt. Better than Bud, but thatís not really saying all that much.

Not good. Light bread with grapefruit and soured milk aromas but not the good kind of all of those. Med creamy white head. Not much flavor, I canít even remember what it tasted like. Get Aegean(spelling?).

Looks nice enough, light gold with a frothy white head, but the other raters have nailed it. Thereís nothing to this beer. Almost no scent, no taste... merely suggestions of malt and corn in both. Iíd still drink this before most of the BMCs, ícause at least itís not offensive.

Pretty much water, but not bad tasting water, that says alot! No real flavor to speak of, but not terrible. I could drink alot of these with some hot indian food!

I asked the guy at the bar what Hillas was. He told me it was greek beer, like amstel light. I never had greek before so I tried it... tastes like amstel light (nothing).

Smells and tastes literally like nothing. Like carbonated water almost, with a small hint of corn and rice in the finish. Iíve had water more flavor it seems. Tastes a little like tissue paper after an entire bottle. Weird.
