1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Corn and other adjuncts in this one. Itís basic and very much cheap pale lager like, with a very clean and almost metallic finish.
Very light, straw yellow colour with a thumb sized, bubbly white head and crystal clarity. The head lasts surprisingly well for a pale lager and holds for about a minute before gradually reducing in size but the colour is horrible.
Lots of corn and cheap lager hops in the taste with a sharp, chemical like flavour following this. Again it is very basic but not overly offensive, just lacking complexity.
Very light and watery with a sharp and dry chemical finish and a very sticky feel to it. Not great on the palate at all Iím afraid to report.
Everything about it screamed that it was a cheap and basic pale lager. At a push it could maybe go well with some spicy food but in truth what lager doesnít?

330 ml. bottle. Pours pale yellow with an average white head. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste is sweet malt, corn, and a bit of skunk. Didnít give any bonus points for the bottle, probably should have.

Color: Light yellow
Aroma: Very light aroma from malt
Body:Malty sweet with a hint of bitter hops. Only very light skunkyness if any at all.
Finnish:Very light and short
Over-all/Mouth-feel:Very light, surprisingly low in carbonation. Much lower than many US domestic light lagers.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, this beer did not give me so far any luck. And it had a weird taste, i for me it was a little like cardboard taste in the end. But like every one says pretty bottle.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I must admit I bought this because of the cool bottle knowing full well that the chances of it being any good were pretty minimal. Aroma is malt with some brewing cereal. Taste is about the same. No bitterness. Pretty bad.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a hazy yellow-gold with a spare white head. Aroma: Whoa, skunkarama! Along with the skunkfest thereís grain and some caramel or toffee or something. Flavourís watery, grainy and has that weird caramel/toffee medley thingy as well. Light bodied. Not good at all. Cool bottle though.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured clear and golden with a nice light foamy head.
Smells terrible, typical green bottle skunk smell.
Tastes better than the aroma would suggest. Carbonation is somewhere between light and medium with a lingering veggie/skunky aftertaste.
This is your typical tasteless macro lager. I was given two as a gift and Iím not sure if the second will ever make it out of the fridge.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2 oz. bottle served in shaker (an additional point will be added to the overall score because I like the bottle)- poured a transparent slightly thin yellow color, medium carbonation, 3mm white head formed and tried to lace to an extent. Aroma of a light malt with corn and rice, and a touch of hops. Hits the mouth with a thin body, malt has some sweetness to it- at least it isnít skunk!, middle holds up well, finish has a kiss of the hops. Not too shabby for my last beer before RBWG- give me break, Iím trying to quit smoking and anything near the sight of beer makes me smoke!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lucky Buddha has a medium, white head and a just slightly hazy straw appearance, with little brown flecks floating about and a decent amount of lacing. The aroma (green bottle) was happily not skunked, but one gets sweetness, white bread, and a kiss of the hops. Taste is lightly roasted barley, bread, some paper, sweetness, bread crumb, a touch of pleasant bitterness, and there are other obscure flavors which I canít pin down (honey?). Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Lucky Buddha Beer finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, dry, and easy drinking. This is a delightful lager. RJT
