stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - MAY 5, 2009
Bottle, 35,5cl. Pours a clear yellow/golden beer with a white head. The aroma is weak, but with a little caramel. The flavor is caramel. The palate leaves a little bitterness. Overall a non-interesting beer.

blankboy (6920) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2009
Bottle (355ml) courtesy of garthicus. Beer #3 of "Crappy to mediocre beer rating night". Oh good, a Pale Lager...sigh. Pours a very pale clear yellow-gold with an average size fluffy white head. Aroma is skunky and vegetal along with grain and corn. Watery flavour of grain, corn, grass and sugary sweet malt. Harsh bitter finish. Average bodied. In short: Crap.

Strangebrewer (1067) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2009
bottle. Poured clear pale gold with receding white head. Mild sweet malty corn aroma. Light bodied. Malty with honey sweetness. Light bitterness in the finish. Not bad.

Quinten (1055) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2009
At an toko in zaandam, golden, full fluffy head, in the first time i thougt,,not bad but than i did read the ingrediens,, i never seen so much "helping" ingrediens,.... o.k. here it comeís in german: antioxidansmittel (natriumdisulfit) e223, natriumisoascorbad e316, sauerungsmittel (milchsaure) e270, sauerregulator (calciumchloric e509) Itís very poor that you need those ingredients to brew a beer. I rather eat dogs an katís on the street i.p.o. finish thise one.

Todd1976 (2) - USA - MAR 9, 2009 does not count
I saw this on special at the store for 3.99 so I said what the hell. Definitely a taste that I didnít expect. I was thinking Asian beer = something like Sapporo Beer. I would say that this is worth the bargain price it got. Either I need to acquire a taste for this or it just sucks. Buy something else. Lingering aftertaste that almost seems to stick to your tongue. Pass.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2009
355 ml bottle at a Vietnamese restaurant in Antwerp. Big near-white head. Pure golden colored body. Clean and sweetish malt aroma. Hints of metal and hay. The same for the flavor; clean, sweet malts. Minimal hopbitterness. Oily texture. Malty ending. Not bad, certainly not exciting either.

sirPino (883) - Zawiercie/Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAR 1, 2009
No 700
Rated: 27.02.2009
Bottle brown, 355 ml
Appearance: Pours very pale yellowish, shiny with sediments floating in the body texture, carbonation of the body is moderate, head is initially medium, quickly decreasing to very small, leaving faint lacing, fizzy to foamy in texture, white in colour.
Aroma: Kind of thin, papery, cardboard, accidic, rusty, some thin astringently, considerable note of rice, non - beer aroma in general, domination of adjuncts, washing powder, some artificial perfumy notes.
Flavour: Very nice aspect of hoppyness, herbal and aromatic, kind of oriental origin hops, sourness, accidity, some bitterness but on the other hand some stickyness from rice malt, chlorine, very strange, rather dry but in fact becoming sour and salty towards the end.
Palate: Body is light, texture is wattery to dry, carbonation on palate is lively, finish feel is kind of chalky but also metalic and gently salty, sour and astringent, again with too influencial alcoholic aspect as for 4.9% vol.

bradlyc77 (226) - Sebastopol, California, USA - FEB 14, 2009
Bottle in Vietnam. Couldnít really tell the difference between this and the standard lager (green label). Very typical asian lager, grass/straw, pale color, lots of rice adjunct. Refreshing yet bland.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 9, 2009
pours a flat yellow. aroma of fruity wheat, almost apple, like an artificially flavored soda. carbonation and lack of head matches that as well. Overly tannic taste.
