beerbrat99 (132) - Shanghai, - JAN 29, 2012
Poured from a small can. Brilliantly clear with nice head and good lacing. Aroma is slightly grassy. Body is medium and bigger than expected with light bread notes. A pleasant lager beer at a very reasonable price.

kdd230 (26) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2016
330 cl bottle in Thailand. Pours pale straw colour. Little head retention; aroma of sweet rice. Little more in the taste. Rather pallid. Strange aftertaste of metal. This version is brewed by San Miguel in Thaliand.

chromeotaphor (145) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2016
Een zachte toegankelijke pils. Doet denken aan een zachtere versie van Warsteiner. Erg goed in balans voor een pils.

Cajun (346) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Bottle - Pours pale straw, fizzy white head. Hay, grass, some light toasted bread and a hint of fruit. Slight bitterness. Not as imperfect as other pale lagers that magnify imperfections.

drdisque (751) - Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2016
From a bottle poured into a shaker. A solid fairly full bodied pale lager. Dry clean malty finish. Effervescent. Just a touch of bitterness. Slightly above average for the style.

rotaman14 (559) - Wiesbaden, Hesse, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2016
Malt and wet cardboard aroma. No real bitterness or sweetness in the taste, just coooked vegetables and carboard.

sm89walt (1938) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 9, 2016
Keg - Sydney Opera Bar. A clear, effervescent straw yellow with a small but lasting and lacing white head. Aromas of citrus, grain and biscuity pale malt. Light to medium body, medium to full carbonation and a soft to moderate length and intensity bitterness.

Maits (113) - ESTONIA - AUG 1, 2016
Yellow/golden clear color, quite nice white head. Drinkable lager, which hasn´t any good taste to mention. Not bad, let´s say average lager.

TedE (930) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 23, 2016
500ml can into glass. Clear pale yellow beer with fluffy white head. Sweet malt nose, a little metal. Clean and bitter, finish is short and tinny. Adequate Asian lager.

Pours clear yellow with medium tall white head. Disclaimer: poured with frozen foam... Aroma of bread, citrus, malt. Taste is sweet and malty with mild bitter finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation.

33 cl från Casino i Montpellier. En random lager som jag hittade bredvid sushin. Inte så spännande alls.
