1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. 5.3% though, not 4.3%. Pretty weak, and watery. Skunky, and well all together not great.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle from a pretty chill Latin American food market located next to Mekong. The pour’s extremely light gold, champagne-like in appearance. The nose certainly can’t be confused for champagne. Loads of paper and creamed corn. Unmistakable developing-world pale lager notes. The taste is pretty skunky. Not fun. Sugared bread. Bizzarely thick. Cardboard on the finish. Pretty nasty. Light body, weirdly oily. Super fizzy. Overall, extremely poor.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured a very pale yellow color with an effervesent body and small white head. Sweet fruity malt and corn make up the aroma. Flavor sadly matches the aroma with malt and corn. Thin watery body.

The aroma is dusty and corn like with almost no hops. The appearance is pale god with a nice but average head. The flavor is like the aroma and blah. The palate is thin. It’s not gross it’s just not that good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
32oz (1Qt.) bottle. clear pale yellow. Tall foamy white head. This is what I remember Bud looking like when I was a kid. Fruity aroma with a very nice skunk. Lots of skunk, which I have learned to love in a lager. Very nice malt with some grass. Flavor is very light malt. Not much corn, impressive. A nice sweet grain, some straw. Very well balanced. Nice hop flavors in the finish. Light bodied. This is one of the better Pale Lagers I have had. Very refreshing. I thing I have found my new lawn mowing beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
910ml bottle pours a clear pale golden color with a 2 finger foamy white head that settles down to a hint of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light malts and hops. Taste is moderate malty sweetness with a clean hoppy bitter finish. One of the better beers that this style has to offer.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
For months, the quart-size Regia bottles sat in a remote corner of the grocery store cooler. They whispered to me -- ’Hey, xenophobe, we’re exotic, we’re untried, we’re $2.19/qt.’ I thought better of purchasing beer from a country whose president regularly dresses like Michael Jackson (not the beer one.) Don’t drink the water... isn’t the beer *MADE* with the water?!?! I finally succumbed. No fear though, this was the single most unremarkable beer I’ve ever had. Clean and totally neutered. I agree with Yamamoto -- great homebrew quart bottles.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. White small head that mostly diminished, poor lacing, fast-rising carbonation, transparent, and a pale yellow hue. Nose was some malt, corn and notes of paint. Flavor was some malt, corn and somewhat heavy tasting. Somewhat reminded me of a malt liquor. Very tingly mouthfeel. Medium body. Not one that I’ll want to have in the future.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
32 oz bottle, thats right a whole quart bitches, purchased at Spirits RB. Pours a clear golden straw color with slight effervescence rising from the center and an average size foamy head that leaves some thick piles of lace on my glass and some large dollops of lasting head. Aroma is dusty overall with some sweet corny notes and cardboard. Flavor is no worse then any other macro lager, corn and metallic notes to form a base of sweetness with a very slight bitter finish. The palate on this one helps out alot and is actually not half bad with a medium body and light, but very much there carboantion, and a creamy finish. If you can get past the flavor this one is drinkable.
