2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2004 a bubbly blonde that gives decent head... and who could have a problem with that?... crisp and refreshing... i think the other ratings on here are a little harsh, i felt this was a good, light, companion with my sushi lunch.

Golden in color with lots of carbonation. Decent bright white faomy head. Light beer taste thatís better than your typical mass produced lager. Goes down smooth with no nasty aftertaste and hits the spot when you out for sushi or some other Japanese cuisine. Decent Beer.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a medium yellow in color, with a small white head. Taste fairly rich. A bit of grain a little maltiness. Overall not a bad pale lager, but still nothing to get excited about.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours with a two-finger white head that leaves some lace. Clear pale amber color. Very light bodied and light carbonation. Slightly hoppy nose. Starts sweet with some hoppy overtones, finish is bland and watery. Works as a lawn mower beer and not much more. $1.60 for 12 oz bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, Ma.

A rather bland beer, that does not inspre any real emotion either way. Works for washing down my dinner since itís the only beer I have.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light, straw appearance with virtually no head. Aroma was lacking, except for a whiff of something like corn flakes. Light-bodied with lots of carbonation, but little in the way of flavor. Lesson learned.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a deep gold with a very small head. Full bodied, decent lager. Seems to be higher than 4.9% alcohol, had a slight bite to it. Malty taste. Some bitterness in the finish. Not nearly as bad as the 11% percentile rating indicates.
