3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A sweeter tasting pilsner that you can find at a Indian restruant. I think it goes well with a hotter food such as Indian curry. Very clear light yellow that leaves you feeling good.

Ratebeer rating 3000. This is a very special beer for me, and not because of the rating milestone. This is a gift from my late wife. She, even in her final stages of cancer, stopped at a beer store with her mom in an effort to find a beer I hadn’t rated.
Here’s to the kindest, most beautiful woman I have ever known.
Golden body with a thin white collar. Pils malt and honey sweetness. Light bodied and easy drinking.
A bittersweet moment drinking this beer. Cheers to all!

Bottle at an Indian place in Yokohama, Japan. Clear golden pour with a head that dissipated quickly. Corn, grain and grass. Not a lot of aroma not flavor. Watery. Too light even to wash down spicy curry...

15th May 2015: Laguna Niguel Orange County. 12oz bottle poured into a Lowenbrau (Munchen) stemmed tulip. Looked OK, regular clear golden body of a lager, thin white covering that faded quickly, also very pilsner/lager like. Very little aroma, corn and grass hints maybe. The taste was weak, traces of sweetness (corn?) otherwise tasteless. Very disappointed.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Transfer from BA review on 12-27-12-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance- Pours a clear golden color with a one finger fizzy white head. The head fades quite fast to leave only a very light level of lacing.
Smell- The aroma was a mix of bready malt, corn, and a light caramel sweetness.
Taste – The taste was as the nose would suggest and was a little on the sweeter side. It begins with a mix of caramel sweetness with some notes of corn and flavors of a malty breadiness. As the taste advances further it crisps up more as the sweeter flavors dwindle slightly and some light citrus hop flavors come to the tongue. In the end a crisp but still semi-sweet flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the thinner side and was rather crisp, with the carbonation level being medium to high. Both were pretty nice of the sweeter and crisper flavors of the brew.
Overall – It is an easy drinking lager that is rather refreshing and nice for spicy Indian food, but is really is nothing special or to pine over.
