This is a sleeper . . . really nice on the palate and not too watery for a macro brew. Has some nice mild sweetness to it - low-average carbonation - goes down smooth and easy. Nice session beer and nice to have a 12p on hand at all times. Way better than most macro beers but its not a big flavor or aroma bomb. Better than most in the inexpensive lager cat. Worth the price

16oz can. Pours a sparkling straw color with small, white, rapidly evaporating head. Aroma of grain and corn and some skunkiness. Flavor is mostly sweet malt with grain notes and a bit of skunk. Light bodied. Typical macro.

Kultige Flaschenform. Sehr helles und leichtes Bier, kaum Schaum. Getreide und Hopfen in der Nase. Geschmack auch getreidig und leicht säuerlich. Sehr eindimensional.

Een pilsbier dat ik gekocht heb in het tankstation rillex in Puerto Plata. De smaak is anders dan een gewone pils, er zit iets vreemds aan maar ik weet niet wat. Niet slecht maar ook niet top.

From a tin at Basford United FC so can only guess what it looks like. Nose is sweet, lots of cane sugar and grassiness coming through. Taste seems to make this appear stronger than it is, rather syrupy and sweet. Overall not bad, wish I knew what it looked like.

Bottle in LA. Has malt sweetness and more malt character than many pale lagers. It’s certainly not a particularly dry lager. this added to it. Clean. Not too bad.

Pours a pissy colored straw from a bottle. Slight skunk. Just another pale lager, not horrible, must have had a relatively fresh bottle. Who knows if you or I will have the same experience the next time we have one?
