Straight hot weather lager brew. Pours yellow with a thick white head. Corn and light adjunct aroma. Taste is crisp smooth malt, not offensive. A good thirst quencher, but don’t expect more.

330ml bottle. I found this very similar to Mexican and Spanish beer, maybe a little bit better than Corona or Sol. The bottle I had was a stubby bottle, which is cooler than the tall thin Corona bottles, at least.

I had this in Manila and was annoyed because they have a virtual monopoly there and I could never get much else. Now in Thailand I appreciate it much more than the local competition.... no bad aftertaste, a bit a weird tang that last a half second but it isn’t necessarily unpleasant. Smell’s not horrible, promises more than the beer delivers

flying_pig (1150) - SCOTLAND - JUL 15, 2011
Bottle (320ml)
Corn with only hints of grain. It’s pretty light on the nose & quite sweet along with some vegetable adjuncts.
Straw colour with a pinky-sized bubbly, white head with poor retention. Crystal clear.
A clean tasting beer. There is some corn & sweet grain along with a little bread. The finish is bitter-sweet & every so slightly skunky.
Light bodied & quite gassy with a bit of fizz in there too. It has an grain like feel to it & the fizz stays with you a while after the sip.

Not a good beer at all & one that certainly doesn’t justify it’s price. Not one area of the beer that I actually enjoyed.

Bleh, pours as expected. Pale straw yellow with one finger of white head. Skunky with lots of wet hay and bread.

ClubGonzo (4724) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2011
Can from Thai supermarket. Pours the typical lager looks. Smell and taste is fairly decent; some dusty hops in the finish but otherwise low on characteristics. Not bad, just boring.

Pales when compared to a dunkel or doppelbock. Piss-colored beers just aren’t my thing, anymore. Nothing special here.
