GlasgowTAD (841) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - NOV 22, 2015
Dispensed from can into teku. Pours clear golden yellow with a large white head which remains for a short while. Aroma is corn, malt, bread. Taste is some astringent artificial bitterness, moderate-high sweetness, biscuits, corn. Consistency is that of the juice that tinned fruit comes in, syrupy and leaves a slightly unpleasant mark on the tongue.

12 ounce bottle
Thousands of mile of travel did nothing to ruin a beer that is the textbook definition of a bland macro scale production. Two sips tell the whole story - this is something you drink for the alcohol and nothing more. Skip unless it is your only way to get a new country tick.

Aroma / Appearance - A golden transparent base sits idly with the occasional draft of carbonation. Grainy adjuncts mix listless hops with flat uninspired wheat. It almost smells like soured cheerios in lemon juice.

Flavor / Palate - Faint inoffensive bitterness tickles the tongue before a segue into lemonade and white bread. Weak and mild, the finish disappears like a puff of smoke. Little can redeem this beer except that now I can cross off one more county - South Korea.

kajser27 (645) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 6, 2015
Watery, low on malt, focus on adjuncts, rice and corn, light, almost devoid of flavor. Waste of time. So far the world of Asian macro lagers is the lowest point of beer... unless maybe if the beer is extremely spoiled.

LazyPyro (178) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear pale yellow colour with a small disappearing head. Aroma is light malty, grassy hops, grains. Flavour is much the same, very light bodied, light in every aspect really. Not unpleasant in any way, refreshing, but a fairly boring watery lager.

Rex_Remes (89) - Bonyhad, HUNGARY - OCT 24, 2015
(330 ml can, Malaysia) This was the cheapest beer available in a couple shops, so I had to try it. Very light aroma, hints of watery grain. Appearance was clear, clean, sparkly, light yellow. Taste: not much going on, touch of sweetness, grain, minimal hoppiness/bitterness. Palate: smooth, light, fresh. Overall: if you are looking for a hearty beer, this is not for you. But this simple beer was refreshing and easy to drink (great on a hot Malaysian day).

Bottle from a Koran Streetkitchen in Berlin. They had to dust it off, maybe that tells you something. Aroma ist of mild malt and hay. Body is very watery. For a hot meal it seems appropriate, as it resembles rather a lemonade.

(can) clear very pale yellow colour with a small, white head; faint aroma of noble hops; light neutral flavour, no finish - another flavourless beer
