I detest this beer, my friend and I kept passing the glass to try and make the other finish it. Typical crap lager if you ask me. Pale yellow, too carbonated, bland, fizzy taste, stale hops, sour bite to it. rather have a heineken and i dont like heineken either.

Thereís more to this beer than just a funny little bottle. Very little bitterness, nice and malty with no after taste. A smooth and easy brew, if somewhat bland. Best enjoyed in hot weather. Good and certainly worth a try.

Too expensive for what you get. Itís a neat little bottle though, and like Grolsch, the bottle makes it a big seller. Itís decent, but not for the price. Too bland, but certainly not bad.

A half-decent beer that can be exploited by hot weather.Light, crisp with the malt body. Leaves a slight tang on after taste. Lacks depth and hops but works with grilled tropical fare. Value is not there at $ 9 US in NYC so better alternatives to be found for the premium price

Very bland flavor. Better than fizzy yellow American beers, but Iíd only drink a whole one if I had to to save my life.

This beer is way too carbonated. It reminds me of heineken, but it isnít as crisp. It seems like a beer that should be in a green bottle, though, if that makes any sense.
