I mean, it was bad, but not offensive. Pale pee in color, thin fizzy head. Thin, boring and very macro in flavor. This is probably what philippinos tailgate with.

Clear glass bottle, always a good sign. Not pouring this one out. Corny, sweaty, grains, water, extracty hops and dishwater. Fizzy. Weird lingering industrial aftertaste. Blech.

*Bottle in Thailand. Smooth neutral but refreshing beginning. Easy to drink with a nice watery and slightly sweetish body. No bitterness and not as tasty as the "Tiger Crystal Light".

Bottle poured to pint glass very cold beer Appearance: Light orange, minimal head, a lot of lacing Aroma: scent smell of alcohol, nothing else Taste: not really great Mouth feel: very carbonated Overall: good beer for the hot weather in the Philippines, and to get drunk quickly at the fastest rate and the most inexpensive way

This tastes good probably because it had a line in it. Had at Paddys in Krabi Thailand. White head. Lime and light beer taste.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a golden straw color with a two finger head of pure white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, fading over time to leave a bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew rather nice for a light brew in a clear bottle. While I was expecting tons of skunk, there was none, instead the brews aroma was quite strong of a cereal smell; sorta like cheerios. Along with these smells comes some corn syrup and a bit of caramel as well. Taste – The taste begins with a bready taste mixed with some caramel. As the taste moves on, some of the caramel fades, being replaced by a blend of light fruits and corn syrup sweetness. All the while some hay and grass develop in the middle of the tongue, with them only fading later more toward the end of the taste. With the flavors that are left at the end of the taste, and with a little bit of a cardboard taste that comes at the very end, one is left with a malty, lightly off (cardboard and corn) taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is thin with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. For the somewhat off and lighter abv. of the brew the feel is quite appropriate and makes for a more easy drinking brew overall. Overall – A decent light brew overall. Its aroma was very surprising to me, but its flavor was a bit lacking. Nothing all that hot here, but hey, if you are drinking a light beer looking for tons of flavor, then you are automatically barking up the wrong tree. Also for only 100 calories for the 11.2 fl.oz bottle, this light beer packs more punch then the average light beer so….

330ml Dose. Klar und golden mit minimaler Schaumkrone. Absolut dünn, ohne jeglichen Geschmack.

JorgeLee (1613) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2015
In a bottle in H&J waching Scotland-Samoa. Pale yellow. Water. Slightly corny. No hops to speak of. Pretty terrible, the only redeeming feature being that it doesn’t taste of much!

A nice straw-colored beer. Pleasant fragrance of freshly mown grass, light hop and slightly spicy. Foam is quickly vanishing. Tastes like a light lager. Pleasant light hop bitterness. Surely really nice on a hot summer day, where a lighter beer can be a fine thirst quencher.

gripweed57 (1273) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2015
330 ml bottle. Straw gold color. Small rocky white head. Grainy nose redolent of maize and metal shrapnel. Faint malt flavor is ever so brief, with a hint of hay and saline nasal spray. The 0 rating is spot on.
