Light yellow, good head. Taste like another pilsener / lager with a bit of a citrus or light pine hit to it. Ok, but not great.

Pours a pale yellow color with a small white foamy head. Smells of malts and skunk. Tastes of malts. Light and crisp. Better than expected!

Bottle. Poured light golden amber colour, with a thin head, but retention was very poor and thin. The aroma at first is all citrus but no hops are prominant. The taste does not have much malt character at all, the bitterness was slightly dull just a lot of citrus flavours going on here although quite crisp its very watered down with not much flavour.

dEnk (3834) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2010
Bottle. Golden pour, medium head. Aroma is faint malt and hop. Flavour is refreshing balance between bitter and sweet, hints of corn syrup, grains. Definite lawnmower, but walking around here in the Philippines is too much effort already so it’s nice every time. Nice silk screened bottle.

It’s golden with a white head. The aroma is weak with light notes of malt and fruit. The flavour is mild/thin with light notes of malt, fruit and citrus and the finish is slightly spicy.

fullers (253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2010
Bottle. Somewhere in Hong Kong. Awful. Negligible aroma. Does not deliver on pleasant appearance - golden with substantial white head. Flavour extremely off-putting. Never again.

GKillian (525) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 4, 2010
Pours clear pale yellow with white head and some lacing. Faint hop aroma. Faint beer taste. The best you can say is that it is wet.

Bierkrug (2133) - - JUN 15, 2010
640 ML bottle in Thailand. A usual macro lager taste and aroma. Nothing special or commendable about it. I suppose my perception would changed since I was drinking it under the hot sun on a beach. Inoffensive and better than some of the other macro lagers out there.

Odyn (266) - New York, USA - JUN 8, 2010
Got no aroma off this. It is alright: not good, not bad, just sort of there. About what a pale lager would be. Better on a hot day, not as drinkable as some in the class, but better than Genny!

nhamilton (103) - Cibolo, Texas, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Pours golden to a medium bodied white head. Has a faint fruity aroma to it and is smooth on the palate. Doesn’t have an unpleasant aftertaste. Not a bad beer.
