From Skyview, of course. Yellow color with a medium head. Stronger skunk aroma. Moderately corny taste, but also muddled with grain and some unsavories. Blah.

Thanks to Skyview for sharing. Crisp clean grainy nose with a faint hopy body. Not as sweet as other lager’s but a definite top pick for lawnmower beer.

A treat from Skyview. Best described as crisp. The brown bottle has helped. No skunk at all. Light hops, and for what it is, quite good.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Johns Marketplace in Portland, Oregon. Pours a light golden pale blonde brew with an average fizzy white head that slowly dissolves to a thin head and spotty lacing. Aroma of light skonk, some bready malt, citrus zest, and a touch of grassy hops. Taste is light bodied, some carbonation, with sweet malt, mild floral and a touch of lemon. Finish is slightly metalic with some lemon, and then a dry multi-grain aftertaste flavor.

Bottle. Poured pale with lasting white head. Little lacing. Pale gold colour. Sweetish malty aroma. Light malty flavour with no bitterness. Watery finish. In the tropics, humid and hot, after heavy labour, this might be a very welcome beer.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is mostly non existent with the exception a little sweet fruitiness/skunkiness. Pale gold. Flavor is sweet and skunky with a crisp finish. Was very refreshing. Not bad. Pretty regular, but I would rather drink this than Bud.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2010 Dull blonde, but easy drinking with a light malting. A solid blue collar drinkin’ man’s beer. Re-rated 1/31/10 in Hawaii. Sparkling gold and vigorously carbonated. Standard dive bar dank lager.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
