Finhead (1147) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2013 A clear golden pour with a large, white head. It has a sweet cereal grain aroma with slight skunk. The light body has a lively carbonation and sweet taste with a clean finish. Plus, it has a great name.

Pale yellow with a spritzy head that reduces swiftly. Smells of dusty malt droppings. Medium nectar with a ample effer pushing spritz. Decent balance. Nothing offensive and not bad actually on a hot January day.

KyotoLefty (6145) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 1, 2011
Aroma of skunk and crackers, plus some grass and citrus. nice golden color without much of a head. Fruity, sweet flavor with honey and grains. Clean and refshing, but eith little bitterness. drinkable, and probably ok for a day at the beach. ok.

Clear yellow body with decent head. Some corn in the aroma as well as wet cardboard. The taste is pretty much the same, a little watery, pretty much as expected.

Of all the lagers I had tonight, this was easily the best and I believe underrated. Refreshing, a light bite, but continuous. Some dry hops in the finish.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2010 Either a brilliant inside joke, or a terrible translation. Good beer through, don’t doubt yourself.

smells kinda what beer used to smell like when i was 6. Not sure what that means exactly. some toasty smell. little banana. toasted banana. pour is really light yello like a coors light almost. has a salty kind of heineken feel with a little fruity banana at the end. like a burnt ripe banana with bubbles. not bad. I would pay 15 cents a piece for these and sit under a straw umbrella for at least 9 hours. Probably wont buy it again for 5.99 at Trader Joes. If warm is bad for beer why does trader joes refuse to put it in the fridge!?!? If skunked is a real thing, this beer is skunked to hell.

33 cl bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a crystal clear light golden color with a good size white head. Very light lacing. Aroma is light grain and herbal hops with a touch of soap. Flavor is lightly sweetened grain and some carboard. Light to medium body. Worth a tick I guess.

urchased this beer so that I could try a beer from Thailand. I came into it not expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. Pours a clear yellow and looks about like a BMC beer. There is no head. The aroma is also similar to a BMC with some corn and yeast. No hops are present in the aroma and not much in the flavor. The flavor is corn with a little bit of grass. Basically your basic, macro flavor. Very light mouthfeel. Not a great beer, but better than I was expecting.

Bottle 33cl. @ Chriso’s pre GBBF Shindig ’09.
Clear medium yellow color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, grain, cabbage water, cardboard. Flavor is moderate sweet with a average duration. Body is light to medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. [20090801]
