I had this at my local Vietnamese restaurant and I enjoyed its flavor. It had a solid amount of carbonation and wasn’t watered-down. It was grassy and somewhat sweet, but it paired well with the Vietnamese dishes, especially the cilantro and bean sprouts.

A pleasant surprise. Golden and malty with no carbonisation.Poured with a small head and had a nice well rounded mouthfeel. Lingering aftertaste. I didn’t expect a lot from this one but really enjoyed drinking it.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2007 bottle: Great pale lager, don’t believe this site which has a mind boggling fear of embracing pale lagers. Has that sweet tamarind/something extra that Kalyani & Neustadt Springs Lager have in the very bottom of the bottle! Very distinct pale lager taste, crossing more into tropical lager. The wankers in love with words or strong flavours (i.e. brainwashed) , will overlook this subtlety and dismiss it. Hidden gem. Upgrade your Budweiser.

bottle: I split this with King of Castle for his 100th beer and I must agree with him.....this beer isn’t that bad and certainly doesn’t deserve to be 4th percentile. Very nice and refreshing pale lager with some interesting malt flavourings. Some spicy and somewhat unidentifiable flavourings help to make this beer distinct from other pale lagers. The rice taste is also evident and enjoyable. This one deserves more unbiased ratings.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - FEB 4, 2010
Pale golden in color with a sprinting head. Mild to nonexistent aromas. Light to medium body with mucho carbonation. This lager has a killer little hop on it. It’s zesty, clean, crisp, very refreshing. The finish is bittered beautifully. Seriously, not bad at all.

Gerbeer (3158) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
355 ml bottle. Pours gold with light head. Aromas of corn syrup, cereal and grass. Flavors are similar with lots of sugar and light toasted rice. Easy to quaff on a hot day and not offensive. Actually under-rated.

Bottle at Pop Up Brixton. Clear apple amber, medium white head. Nose is standard macro lager. Grassy, straw, sweet malt grain, crisp dry lager yeast. Taste as above, body is slightly too watery, but it’s drinkable and better than many big name macro lagers. Curiously made with rice too as some Japanese beers used to be, but I can’t really notice it in the beer.
