1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap at Summits Wayside Tavern- I ordered this for the free pint glass. Pale yellow color with a small fizzy head. No real aroma. Slightly better than BMC but not by much. Dry finish. Nothing special.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2003 Light aroma (difficult to distinguish due to being served with other food in a Japanese restaraunt), Yellow/gold appearance, light hoppy flavor, not strong, suitably dry, but not overly so. Went well with the food being served.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow with a small, fizzy head that dissipates quickly. A slight hint of fruit and hops in the aroma. Starts out very slightly sweet then turns bitter. Dry on the end.

Draft - Had at sushi dinner. Very thin, with light malt flavor. Do they use hops? Only good with food.

Bottled stuff. Not bad really. Pretty smooth. Everything else is mellow, sutble or just plain thin. No nasty aftertaste and none of that dirty plastic that some of these have. That's probably the best thing about it, it's inoffensive. Shame it's not as cheap as sparkling water really.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2014
Dec, 2003 Bottle. Mine is 5.5%, brewed under licence in the UK by Charles Wells. Its cold, wet and drinkable, but it has absolutely no character. Very subtle malt and delicate hops. As my grandmother would say: There’s nothing there to offend anyone. And I suppose that’s the point. I mean, it’s not bad beer - there is some taste there, and the taste is pleasant enough - but I’ve had mineral water with more flavour and character than this. [2.0]
<March, 2012 Keg - Slug & Lettuce, Woodford Green. Dry. Faint hops. Wheat flavour. Some rust. Not interesting, but drinkable. [2.3 ]

Draft: their attempt at BMC. No aroma or flavor to speak of. Maybe a touch of malt and a touch of corn. No bitterness at all. Forgetable ... I hope.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: APR 13, 2004 Piss yellow, no head. When I first tried this stuff I thought I had a cold and couldn't taste. So I had my roommate try it and he thought it was tasteless as well. Then my other roommate bought some to try and he told me it tasted horrible so I tasted a swig and holy crap, I must have had a cold the first time I tried it cause it tasted worse than a rotten cod fish wrapped in a shitty diaper. Its enough to gag a maggot.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light hops detectable in the aroma, nothing else. Very clear color, light golden with quickly dispersing head. The flavor is also lightly hoppy with a hint of malt in the back. Finishes very watered down with a slight fruity end. This wasn't a bad lager, just didn't have any of the malt flavors that are good in beer.

Ok bought in the 21.4 oz bottle to go along with some sushi I had got.
Nice enough beer to look at..deep clear gold colour with a largish foamy pure white head with some active carbonation.
Smell also is pleasant yet pretty average for a lager..nicefresh hops..slighly peppery..but mostly a bread smell.
The taste however is a let down..this is almost exactly the same as Budweiser for a premium price..thin and leaves no impression at all..least its not horrible.
Pretty wishy washy on the palate.
NOt drinkable to me at all..even with sushi..I'll buy Sapporo Reserve next time.
