1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Rater-friendly 135ml can. Unnecessarily large and frothy head. Always scary, because you know it’s unnatural. Clear yellow color, VERY light. Pretty weak aroma of corn, grass, and a bit of hops, and some mysterious sweetness. Strangely sour, yet slightly bittersweet flavors. Vaguely interesting, but still so much like any other macro-brewed pale lager, that it’s just not worth drinking unless there are no other options.

1.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled. Brewed by Wells and Young England. A very pale yellow coloured lager with no head. Nasty skunky, corny aroma which is very unwelcoming. The taste is better with some bittering crisp hops and some smooth flavours. Still not anything Id seek out, but at least it doesn’t taste how it smells.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale golden in colour, lingering white head, great lacing. The aroma is grainy, herbal, grassy, crisp and sweet. The flavour was crisp, sweet, some grassy hops, some corn. Watery mouthfeel, thin body, medium/high carbonation. Finishes pretty quick, grassy and sweet. Basic and uneventful.
Gift from by brother-in-law.
Production date April 20, 2006.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bought a bottle at Martinetti’s in Brighton. Smells like Beast. Slightly hazey golden color. Super light taste. Has gross, rice-like after taste. Taste like old rice. Note: this beer was drank slightly after the freshness date. I can’t imagine anyone drinking this regularly.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. Fresh floral aroma, pours with a light golden hue and small head. Highly carbonated. Reasonably hoppy lager flavour but with no real character to it. The palate is a little thin and there is not much aftertaste. A very average pale ale.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fizzy and light, not much better than Miller to make up for the pricy import difference

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
22 oz bomber. I’m not big into Asian food, although I have found that I am more fond of Japanese than Chinese. I visited Benihana for a friends birthday, and so, I figured I should rate a Japanese beer. Anyway, I digress. This was consumed from a 22 oz bomber. Pours clear golden with an average head which quickly disappears. Some corn and rice scents. Not an offensive beer. Easy drinking swill and IMO very comparable to Budweiser. Some flavor here which is more than can be said for many in this category. Not a beer I will be buying in the future at around $7. But it was worth a rate, nonetheless.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottled, light, no aroma, very little taste, balanced, but not much of a beer

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle brewed by license here in Australia, which is a bit disappointing. Light aroma of rice with a bit of hop to it. Gold body with white head. Easy drinking lager really, slightly skunky if it gets a bit warmer. Dry finish, bit of hops present, but nothing to write home about.
