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.

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.

Tap. Initially some depth to the head that disapated quickly. Carbonation is there and noticeable though nowhere near macros. Pale light yellow, smooth to the taste, thin in the mouth and overall a more than average pale lager with nothing outstanding.

taste like corn. smells and looks like budweiser. i basically got this to get a new country rating, because i was pretty sure i wasnt going to think it was great off the start. it has some good qualities, and im sure it would go very well with sushi. pretty good for what it is.

A distictive lager with an odd aroma, falvor. Hard to explain, but tastes like olives. Pours as expected in color and gravity but no head. Good mouthfeel.

Simply a decent beer to wash down good sashimi. Nondememo and fizzy, but certainly not offensive.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Soft grassy aroma, not disgustingly strong like most cheap beers. Yellow in appearance, with a small head. Some bubbles rising to the surface. Flavor is small, grassy, and sweetish. Not bad, actually. But nothing I’d seek out again.

Okay, this one is okay if it is really cold and you drink it really fast, before the real flavors can sit in on your palate and you really figure out how bad it tastes.

another skunky import. not reccommended. buy budweiser that will at least be fresh and save your money
