Derek881 (1231) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2007
Poured out from a large sized bottle. A very clear, light gold color with many rising bubbles. The head was big, white, and foamy with good retention. The aroma was grainy and grassy hops, maybe some barley. A mostly sour and somewhat bitter taste; not unique. The beer had moderate carbonation but a good, light fizzyness. It was mostly wet with a good body density, but somewhat oily.

Poured from a bottle, gives reasonably large white head that persists for a moderate amount of time. Beer is pale yellow, no special visual character. The aroma is of fresh-cut hay with a slight hint of flowering fruit trees. The flavour is surprisingly complex: sweet-sour in the mouth, and leaving one with a sour taste on the sides of the tongue, with a tart taste on the tip, and the mouth flooded with a sweeter taste, slightly evocative of a green pear. This beer was a very pleasant surprise indeed; I expected a weak and boring Asian-tyle lager like Singha, but got quite a treat instead.

Drank a few of these on my honeymoon in 2003. Far from remarkable. Typical boring lager. Probably tasted a whole lot better sitting on a boat in Bora Bora than it would here in a pub.

swanmann (718) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Slightly skunky aroma of corny malts.Bright, clear straw color with good effervesence, and thinnish dissipating bight white head of tiny bubbles. Very carbonated with a barely citrus note, and peppery bite. Mostly skunky. Regular Heine is worse, but I just had to bring it back from Oahu.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2007
A lot of people get sentimental over this lager. Poured a typical non-beer country straw color. Frothy bustling head that quickly dissipated. Gym sock stink flavor with a biting pissy finish. Ok. Thatís all I will say.

bhensonb (13610) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 16, 2007
12 oz bottle bb 13.09.07. Primarily a clean corn aroma, but there is a hint of grass and floral hop. Light brassy color with a white head that didnít amount to much. Starts with light corn sweetness, medium mouthfeel, moves on to some grassiness. The finish is a touch herby, with sweetness, and a hint of bitter. It finally drifts on to relative dryness. Typical lager for the masses. Better than Bud though.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2009 Canned. A golden coloured beer with no head. The aroma has some butter and a little grassy hop. The taste is fairly crisp, but pretty unexciting. Just enough bog standard lager.Score 1.9
Subsequent rating also scored 1.9.

Fell in love with this stuff on my honeymoon in Tahiti. (Maybe its the memories, maybe the beer.) I thought you couldnít get Hinano in the States, so I was really excited to come across it at AJís in Phoenix. Very crisp, almost European in flavor, good balance and I liked the hoppiness. Will go down even better in the summer heat. Iím hooked.
