Awful corn watery concoction. I had forgotten how bad beer could be. Nasty and cheap. Terrible.

Can. It’s fine, but not very clean. I will put a lime in this one on occasion to make it more tolerable. It’s really messy, even for pale lager. I will still buy it from time to time. i like the can. Thats really all I can say.

FatPhil (13584) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 22, 2010
355ml bottle (Rimi, Tallinn)
4 Sweet buttery corny aroma. Vaguely beerlike, but some definite flaws
1 Pale gold fizzy - would have been 2 if it wasn’t in a clear glass bottle
3 Odd sweet chemical retronasals, papery. Bland sweet pale nothingness, maybe mineral water, with a dash of pencil sharpenings from cheap hop extract.
2 Watery palate, fizzy. Finish chemical and papery. Later a little corny
5 About what I expected from Corona. A long way from good unless you’re desperate.

A thin white fizzy head above a clear yellow body. Sweet, corn, a weird fruity flavor. Not good but not undrinkable.

Beer pours light. Light frothy head. Crisp taste. More enjoyable than a corona

envane (569) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2011
Clear gold with a fast disappearing white head. Husk aroma. Taste is light corn with a metallic finish.

Bierkrug (2130) - - DEC 2, 2011
330 ml bottle picked up in Erbil, Iraq and shared carpejugulm. Clear, light brown orange body with a a short lasting fizzy white head. Aroma is grassy hops grains aroma and above all corn with light fruity straw. Fruity straw hops flavor has a lot of hay. Palate is offensive and unworthy. Fairly bad beer, but barely drinkable.

maley1 (1116) - Calgary, CANADA - DEC 28, 2011
Light yellow pour with small white head. Aroma of corn and hay. Taste of corn, wet hay and slightly skunky. Higher carbonation, nice and crisp though. Not good at all.

nearbeer (4827) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 21, 2012
12 oz. Clear golden with a lasting creamy disc. Nose is sourish dry grass and honey with a hint of skunk. Not much taste, maybe some dry grass and bland white toast with a touch of honey. Light body is balanced with a crisp dry finish, and is a bit too fizzy.

Very poor beer not worth a review. Tastes like bitter water bright gold in color with no head. Was told it sucked by JimMack should have listened.
