Pours a clear pale gold with a 3 finger, frothy white head. Aroma of sweet cereal, corn, grassy and planty hops and a light tree fruit note. Flavor is cereal, light sweet malt, toast, grassy hops, toffee, apple skin and finishes a bit too sweet with an off lightly metallic note. Palate is light bodied, with a dry, though slightly slick feel throughout and a fairly strong, but not too sharp carbonation. Pretty good for the style.

Pours clear golden like a pils should. Froth white head. Aroma is sligtly fruity, cereal and i think hallertauer hops. Taste is clean up front very light fruity flavor good carbonation, some cereal malt taste. Overall i was expecting way worse this isnt that bad.....i thought this was an ok pilsner lager

330ml bottle pours a pale straw color with a finger of white head that settled down to leave no lacing. Aroma is cereal grains and faint hops. Taste is light malty sweetness with a mild hoppy bitterness. Standard macro lager.

330ml bottle pours a pale straw color with a small white head and no lacing. Aroma is mild cereal grains and faint hops. Taste is light malty sweetness and a mild hoppy bitter finish. Light bodied and lively carbonation. Just another average pale lager.

Yellow color with a white head. The aroma is corn and grain like. A little sweet malt up front and some hops in the middle.

A sour grain almost medicine like aroma. Pale yellow with a subtle hint of gold. Sweet corn with a touch sourness in the finish. Not a terrible tasting beer but neither is it that good. It’s drinkable but just barely.

Drank this guy from the bottle. Bleh. Just finished a Belgian, and this was not a good follow up. Very clear, decent head. Aroma is typical of a larger. Flavor is plain, and of rice and maybe corn... Palate is fizzy, so thisi is a fizzy yellow beer. Bleh.

330ml can in Hong Kong. Boring yellow and little head; what is there is that thin stuff that isn’t even appetimizing. Soft aroma of the cardboard from the bottom of a cheap chocolate box. Flavour is a watery mess of grain and alcohol; weak palate. This brew has succeeded at the impossible - making something even worse than the original San Miguel!

Aroma is a stench of cardboard and alcohol, appearance is a boring bright yellow with little head and no lacing. Tastes of bread with a dry finish, okay palate. It would be good on a hot day, but there is little that’s interesting about this one.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2011 Bread in aroma and flavor. A very familiar pale lager, not bad just been there had this.
