ben4321 (5071) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Location: Tried this from a mini can (or a few mini cans) in Aruba, 9/16/14

Aroma: The nose of this beer is pretty light with some grassy hops and sweet malt notes
Appearance: The pour is a clear golden color with a somewhat fizzy head on it
Flavor: The taste is much the same as the nose, sweet malts and a bit of light grassy hop bitterness
Palate: The body of this one is light and a little watery, but not as watery as some in the style
Overall Impression: As far as mediocre generic lagers go, I thought this one was pretty decent. I don’t mean that as to say this is a good beer, just to say this it is better than some of the many terrible examples of this style out there.

Drake (11116) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2014
12 ounce bottle courtesy of Hugo Chavez (kidding!) at the DC Summer Saison & Sour Tasting, 7/12/14. Pours a clear golden with a thin white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of corn, cardboard, cereal grain, clue. The taste is sweet cereal grains, corn, mild hops. Not terrible, might be solid when fresh at the source.

Gewoon prima , niet bijzonder. Flesje is te klein, omdat het ook een goed doordrinkbaar biertje is..

Had a couple of these flown in from Miami courtesy of my favorite cuaima. Thanks Maigua! Enjoyed on the ghetto roof of my patio. Not as bad as some and not as good as many. Bottle.

Bottle courtesy of solidfunk, thank you sir! Clear pale yellow color. Aroma of light paper and straw. Taste is light lemon, some cardboard. Needs work.

hman43 (738) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bought in bottle in Curacao. There was a hint of grasses and sweet aromas, not strong. Little hard and pale yellow in color. Taste was sweet, but otherwise bland.

Marcius (360) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Appearance with pale golden color and low head. Aroma very weak (malty). A very simle beer, aiming to refresh.

BlackHaddock (5188) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2014
222ml Bottle bought in Willemstad, Curacao and drank at home on 25th June 2014. Poured into a ’La Chouffe’ glass. Very pale golden body with a weak and thin white wispy head. Malts rule the nose and taste, light and grainy though. Nasty metallic feel to the whole beer: ice cold and on a boiling hot day it might be OK, but on a UK evening it doesn’t impress. Not a good beer, even by South American/Caribbean standards and although I get a Venezuela tick it will not be remembered for the right reasons.

mile (3572) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle. Light golden, small and fully diminishing head. Light, malty - some corn and lightly sweetish aroma. Body is very light, malty - some corn and lightly sweetish flavor. Finish is short, malty - light corn and lightly sweetish, faint corn. Tastes really cheap. Is this beer?
