I actually knda liked this one, for what it was. Copper, thin ring of foam. Mildly sweet, with a dryis note in the finish. A little bit of grainy flavors, too. Pretty refreshing, actually.

Bottle. Poured clear pale yellow with thin fast dissipating head. Sweet aroma with many sugary notes. Sweet candy and malt flavour. Sugary finish, no bitterness. Too sweet to drink again.

Barreras (1000) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Pours a golden yellow with aroma of corn. Taste of corn and slight metallic. A very dry aftertaste. Tasted like a typical mass produced lager, then I learned it was made by Miller. I wouldn’t but this again, once is enough for me.

Wunder_beer (2) - Oregon, USA - JUL 19, 2010 does not count
The best thing about htis beer is it’s beautiful pale golden color. Light, gritty underflavor like sandy or dust. Can taste a little exotic fruit in the aroma, but all-in-all it’s rather bland. As others have said, just one short step up from the industrial pale lagers like Budweiser. Slakes thirst, does not quench appetite for a quality drinking experience.

Clear golden with a medium off white head. Malty aroma with hints of grassy hops. Flavour came out fairly dry with grassy hops and malty notes. Finished dry mild bitter. Clean.

Bomber shared with kim johansen after some unsuccessful late night drinking. Pours gold nice tan head. Nice lagery nose. Taste is light and refreshing and all in all not half bad.

Overall, this beer was terrible, it was about as vile a beer as they come. I’ll avoid it like the plague form now on.

Bottle. Pours yellow with a white head...Aroma is pale lager with hint of pepper and citrus. Flavor is like a light lager but no gross aftertaste. This is what it is...better than macro pale lagers.
