Pour from can, this beer is light gold in color. Adequate head but flattens fast. Smell a little bit citrus and taste a bit corn and bitter. Overall, drinkable and better than I expected.

Really like this kind of stubby bottle. Its perfect island beer. Not bad but not particularly special. A mild malt taste with some carbonation and not much bitterness. Its kind of thin refreshing beer you would have in summer time. Its pretty smooth, and doesnt have over whelmping or skanky after taste.

smells like a sweet Pilsner, tastes like one too...sweetness lasts on the palette for a while, light and refreshing besides that...maltier than other pilsners...smooth and good..gets a bit worse with warmth

Blonde claire, effervescence moyenne, col blanc moyen. Au niveau des arômes et du goût: une pils vraiment pas top...

bunget (498) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear golden body, small white head with average retention for a lager. Aroma sweet malt, corn, herbs, metallic notes, a little skunky. Taste of sour-sweet mash, herbs, strongly metallic and mineral. Nasty!

Very happy when I saw this one in a shop, but was slightly disapointed. Nothing wrong with the appearance - clear and golden with medium white head which quickly settles down. The aroma is very mild, only a bit of hops and dusty grains. The taste is nothing special - not bitter nor sweet, quite hoppy and almost too grainy. Also lacks a bit of bubbles to make it more refreshing. All in all, not very pleasant.

Pours a clear golden with a big white head. Aroma of... what aroma? There’s a bit of grain and hay, but that’s about it. Very watery.

Patrickctenchi (3390) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle: Pours light gold with a frothy white head. Grainy, cardboard aroma. Taste is bitter, grainy malt. Grassy, stale bitter. Not good.
