UPDATED: JUL 8, 2012 Had on 7/4/12. Not much to say about this average lager besides the good carbonation and lacing I?m assuming from the pure cane. Good to try once but wouldn?t drink again.

Rated from memory, but I drank a lot of these on Hawaii. Routine lager, but fresh and cheap.

(draft @ Burger Bar - Las Vegas, NV) Clear gold color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is lightly sweet with some corn and hops. Flavor is also sweet with the same corn and hop note along with some cookie dough and light malts. Refreshing and went well with my burger.

robforbes (2074) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - APR 2, 2010
pours a very pale yellow with a thin white head that dissipates rapidly, not much of a lacing. smell is of corn, pale malt, and grain. taste crisp, grain, malt, a few hops, and a little funky ending.

Drank this from the bottle watching some kids play baseball in the dark. This almost tastes of nothing! But I like the way it feels!

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.
