Bottle at RBWG 2014, thanks! Pours a clear yellow with a bubbly white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of earthy sweet grains with a bit of corn and sweet bread notes. Flavor has more sweet corn with some earthy sweet grains as well.

chinchill (1364) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 13, 2014
A rather run of the mill lager Its strong point is the aroma, which is a decent light malt with lightly spicy and floral aspects. On the weak side, the light body is watery. The flavor is unremarkable for a mass produced pale lager.

DrSilverworm (5016) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Taster at RBWG 2014 grand tasting - thanks to the person who shared this! Out of a styrofoam cup... Mostly clear amber. Clear amber bready, kind of caramel malty aroma. Thin khaki head. Good thicker lace on this whale oil glass. Dots, ropes, sheets. Mmm.. Interesting bready, biscuity aroma up front. A light funky bite comes out in the finish. Smooth, soft, crisp, lighter carbonation. Smooth, soft, lighter carbonation. Light to medium body. Lightly dry finish. Suprisingly good macro lager.. Especially considering the not ideal temperature and amount of time I know it’s been sitting around for. Gotta respect. Would session, if it fit my budget. ($2)

shrubber85 (6975) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle. Perfume and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with minimal head. Lemon and very light barley malt flavor. Unless I go to India and the choice is this or dysentery, don’t think I be drinking this again.

Patrickctenchi (3075) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle: Pours clear, bubbled gold with a small white head. Wet cardboard, wet old grain. Corn syrup, cardboard, paper, mushy grain taste. Watery and just plain awful. 2.5 million cases a year, eh?...that’s just.....sad.

Royal Challenge is a bland beer. The carbonation is soft, the hops light, the body malty but light. There is a subtle ginger flavor to it and it is exceptionally smooth. Not something I would choose to revisit but not bad.
