1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle (in NZ). I could make some joke about how the "S" must have fallen off, but I am sure it has been done before. And it wasn’t that bad...quite. Though label does make it look like a soft drink. Was just light on everything really - body, taste, beer...

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(bottle - 640 ml) Clear golden pour with a fizzy white head. Corn and grass in the aroma. Flavor is mild and dry with a light corn and grass taste. Very light and easy to drink. Would be great on a beach somewhere.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pours a super light pale yellow, crystal clear small white froth. Aroma of very light corn and some honey. Straw and a a light bit of maltiess. Flavor is bland but not too offensive. Just light hay and crisp light fruitiness. Finishes with almost no bitterness. Sharp biting carbonation and very light bodied. Does its job of refreshing, wish it was summer and not winter while drinking it.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from LCBO:
Light gold modest white head with fair retention, light lacing of the glass. Aroma is mainstrean commercial euro-lager, light noble hop grassiness, light sulphur must from lager yeast and light grainy tones.
Light body, smooth with some real malt and hop ambiance finishes fast clean and sharp.
For a light lager this is better than most commercial mega-brewed Canadian lights...at least it’s all gristed malt, no malt extracts no corn or rice and has a modicum of flavor. Drinkable but absolutely undistinguished.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
I tried this beer on January 29, 2010 at "Smokeless Joe’s" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a very pale gold colour, quite possibly the palest beer I’ve seen out of a bottle. with a very thin white head. The aroma was very weak with grainy malt, and metallic hints. The mouthfeel was medium-thin with medium carbonation. The flavour was grainy malt, with a bitter metallic finish

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
330ml bottle. Watery and sickly pale with a light straw colour. A mass of small bubble race up the side of the glass and dissappear as soon as they hit the top. Malt and grainy aroma that is typical of pale lagers. Tastes as bland as it looks and smells. Might be okay on a hot day in Seoul.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Purchased at an Asian market in downtown Seattle.1600 ml. bottle. Reminded me of Budweiser except it seemed a little lighter in terms of hops and malts. Beer was quite refreshing. Drank out of a paper bag. This homeless guy offered us crack, we didn’t want the crack so we gave him the rest of our beer.

Bottle, at Pyongyang restaurant in Siem Reap. Served at about room temperature so that might affect the rating. Bright gold, flat looking. Candied fruit aroma. Thin palate. Sour, bland, and bad.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Somehow this (seems to be) sold in Oz as something called Premium Cleanskin Beer at about $30 a case. No doubt is some currency arbitrage in there making this that cheap, but is pretty ordinary. Watery and dull with plenty of cheap sweet grain. Not even the lurid look of the photo of it on this page going for it.
