1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Canned. Very pale yellow colour. White, medium sized and soapy head is fast diminishing. Aroma is sweet, lightly malty and has a hint of grassy hops. Flavor is medium sweet, light malty and dries up towards the very light bitterness in the finish. Palate is light bodied, fizzy and int finish certainly not fresh. A very basic bulk lager.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500 ml can. Pale golden colour, medium-sized white head. Simple, a bit sweet malty aroma. Watery. Mild malty flavour, a little metallic. Boring.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2008 Medium gold with a crisp white froth. Oat bread underpinnings; floral, pear and banana accents add a sense of delicacy. A gentle, taffy sweetness before a soft, flowery finish; restrained acidity. Almost creamy and a bit dense with subtle carbonation.
Quaffable brew --oddly reminiscent of a Belgian ale at times-- that could handle more brightness and carbonation.
50cl can, best before 14 November 2008.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2012 Golden colour, medium-sized fluffy head. Sweet malty aroma, buttery notes, grassy hops, a hint of fruits. Light mouthfeel but not a watery one. Quite good.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2011 500ml bottle (3:2:4:2:5=1.6)
Cold. No aroma. Rich yellow, brief white head. Bland lagery taste, mass-produced, quite chemical hops. Fizzy palate. Blah. Bleh.
4 Almost nothing. Vague milky light grains, very bland. Later a bit of honey.
2 Pale and fizzy
3 Simple light grain maltiness, again vague.
2+ Waterry and fizzy. Finish at least has real hops, with a pleasant bitter bite, and even seems to be whole hops rather than extract.
8 Very clean, no noticeable flaws at all. I didn’t mind chugging this, which I guess is what the brewer intended. (Unless he accidentally pressed the ’add hops’ button.)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. A little bit sweet for a mass-market export lager. Not as bad as the reviews here would indicate - Not sure why people have such high expectations for such a thing.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
.5L bottle best before 12/28/07, poured into a lager glass. Light gold in color with a large dense white head. Smells of husky grains and grassy hops. Though the flavor isn’t over the top it is a pleasant grassy flavor. It finishes dry with a lingering grassiness. I can’t believe that i am drinking the same beer as everyone else here because I don’t think this stuff is half bad even though it is past its prime a bit.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I tried this beer on May 8, 2008 after purchasing a couple of bottles from the Queens Quay LCBO outlet (one was given to lenusik). The beer poured a very pale golden yellow with a bubbly white head that quickly disappeared. The aroma was very sick grainy malt with a slight hoppy hint. The mouthfeel was medium bodied. The flavour was very grassy.
