Sweet and surprisingly complex aroma of honey, hay, and even toffee is prominent. Milky golden, full of floaties, thin head. Medium body, sweet honey flavor initially, finishes grassy. Good stuff.

Braudog (5890) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours a straw-colored base, slightly hazy, with a big macro-like white top. The aroma is heavy on the corn, sweet lemon, and hay. The beer has that nominal "other country lager" thing going on here ... musty, corny malt, creamy mouthfeel. But itís cleanly made, unoffending, and almost a little bit refreshing.

An ordinary pale lager by most accounts but with a few notable characteristics, mostly positive. The texture is slightly creamy, the head is thin white fine foam, the aroma is without any telltale signs of corn, the hopping is very mild, there is a gingery tropical flavor evident with mild melon sweetness in the finish.

12oz bottle: Appearance is golden brown with a fair sized white head. Aroma is simply malt. Flavor is malty with no real character to speak of. No off flavors as I was expecting, so overall an ok beer.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Translucent straw, thin sudsy white head, barely any lacing, light carbonation.   Corny nose, adjuncts, and general straw/hay sort of aromas.   Soft corn and rice flavors on first sip.   This one is tough, and I wont be finishing it.   No real off flavors, just a poorly made Pale Lager.   Has a lingering mealiness, paper, cardboard like flavors.   Yeah, ugh... corny corny corny.   No more for me...

Well, the label sure is colorful. Definitely the best Tibetan beer Iíve had, though to be fair itís also the worst.

bought at Specs, when i got home noticed the bottles in the sixer were produced on 10/14/2009, yes, Specs is selling a beer made 2 years ago, discounted to 3.99 a sixer but geez, really?? .. . Aroma of old corn and end of weekend boxer shorts .. . basic hazed gold on the pour, pretty good foam .. . taste, isnít actually that bad- amazing considering the age on it, probably quite an awesome brew if fresh .. . Seriously, what the hellís the chicken?

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 6, 2011
12 ounce bottle courtesy of Butters at the 14th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 3/19/11. Pours a hazy pale golden color with a medium creamy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of grain, corn, mushrooms and a musty note. The taste is grant, peach-like fruit notes and some dusty, musty notes. Thin-medium bodied. Weird beer.

Strange. Pours like a mild tea lager. Smells faintly of yeast, and tastes predominantly of mineral water and faint barley. Free Tibet!
