AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 25, 2004
Reminds me of a lot of corona, maybe a bit lighter in color, and maltier in flavor. Afterwards leaves a slight metallic taste in the mouth.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - JUN 4, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2004 Really an ugly pale yellow, fizzy white head that leaves no lacing. Slightly metallic aroma, pretty standard macro lager, and definitely nothing to intentionally buy if you can avoid it.

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - MAY 28, 2004
Good solid lager, large white head, sweet floral aroma. Flavor is clean and good, could use a bit more hopping. Comes in 20oz bottles which is so essential after a hard day of research. Thanks for the memories, Hinano!

leaparsons (8037) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2004
Pale gold with a white head. Aromas are sweet grain and metallic hops. Flavours are caramel (well some anyway), butter and grain. There is a finish, but I’m not sure what it is. Not that terrible.

SilkTork (5191) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2007 April 2004, Pasteurised can. Very pale, light lager with something of a glue flavour. Not that pleasant - and someone should take them to court for offences under the trade descriptions act for false information in the commercial description. [1.6]
September 2007Can from Carrefour in Caen A fizzy light lager with modest flavour, but mostly quite clean and inoffensive. Some soft cereal notes and a blurred finish, like munching on a sponge. [1.7]

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - APR 19, 2004
Pours blonde with a nice creamy white head, typical lager aroma. This was actually a little better than I had expected, malt character was not unpleasant and the finish was ok. Not as bland as many of the generic recipe imported lagers are, though nothing to seek out, unless you are actually in Tahiti.

Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2004
Very pale for a lager (closer to a pils). I found a surprisingly good hops aroma (mine was delivered to me fresh from Tahiti), the taste was dry, but the aftertaste was too heavy for me. better than i expected from French and tropical roots.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 30, 2004
Gold color with big creamy white head. Light lager aroma. My guess is everyone tries this beer to add it on to their country list. Well, I suppose I fall into that trap too but funny things happen sometimes along the way don't they? This stuff isn't half bad. I mean for a lager, which I don't care for.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAR 13, 2004
Bottled. Golden larger colour with masses of carbonation. A huge white head is being aggressively serviced by loads of fizz. Sharp fizzy aroma. Soft larger malt flavour with a green bitter finish. Neads to be served on location I think.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 8/20
Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2004
A pale orange beer with a huge white head. Next to no aroma - slight malty notes. The flavor is malty sweet with grainy and straw notes and slight hoppy end which only contains hints of bitterness. The body is thin. Just another international lager - not much better not much worse.
