Pale yellow with generous fizz. Green-bottle skunk. Light body, heavy carbonation and a sickening finish.

Lack-luster brew with nothing notable to distinguish it from the masses. Really the only thing it has going for it is the marketing in the Buddha bottle.

12oz green Buddha bottle, pours pale yellow with white head. The aroma isnít much possibly some mild malt and or corn. The flavor threw me right off the bat. Medium honey flavor that really isnít bad and blends rather well with whatever else Is in this which isnít much, overall not bad just wanted to try it.

Kinda your run of the mill yellow piss lager with a touch of sweetness throughout. But the bottle is cool!

joet (2052) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JAN 18, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2014 Honey sweet. nice noble aromas. Very easy drinking. Finishes sweet. Just off dry. Good color and a little head. While the beer is fairly drab in most dimensions, the massive Noble hop aroma is model.

11.6oz into a glass, this is the coolest bottle for a beer ever, no doubt, but lets move on. Sampled in Vegas, no head retention, pours a straw yellow, low carbination, faint hops and malts, dry, cardborad, fizzly, artificial, you get the rest. Just another macro in the great line of it all, but damn, is this a cool bottle, the only selling point for this brew.

Brandon1989 (228) - Euless, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2014
pours a yellow color with a small white head. the aroma is slightly skunky and mild grains. the taste is very different then most macro lagers. it is mostly watery and grainy.

HIGHB4LL (269) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 6, 2014
11.16 oz bottle. Appearance: Small white head that diminishes rather quickly, almost no lacing, pale straw color, clear. Aroma: heavy bread, light hay and citrus. Palate: thin texture, lightest of bodies, average carbonation, abrupt and mildly sweet finish, watery. Taste: very little taste, I guess lightly sweet. Overall, about what I expected, Keystone-esque and just not an attractive beer in any way to me. Cool bottle and thatís about it.

Patrickctenchi (3093) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 6, 2014
Bottle: Clear gold with a sudsy white head. Scent is initial skunk from the Buddha-shaped green bottle...... Grain and honey malt. Cornflake/grain malt and water taste. Fairly typical tasting, cheap, foreign lager...... Drinkable, but not a standout..... Now, is this a China or an Australian rating? Very cool bottle......
