JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2004
Pale golden wth thick, fluffy white head. Light citrus aroma, a bit of spice. Flavour is very clean, light malt. Finish has a touch of paper/cardboard. No bitterness/hops at all. Pretty standard.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2004
Bottle. Pale Yellow pour. Skunky aroma, almost sour wine like. Syrupy corn taste. Thank you LCBO discount bin. And thanks to Jercraigs for helping me get through this.

Bottle. Crisp pale yellow with a smallish film of a head. Grainy slightly grassy hop notes in the aroma with a mildly skunky undercurrent. Tiny bit of bitterness can’t help this thin boring beer. Thanks for sharing Tupalev, hopefully the homebrew turns out better than this did!

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2004
Definitely brewed in the style of American mass-market pale lagers (with crack corn and rice) but with slightly better malt flavor. Okay to drink on a hot, humid day.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - SEP 5, 2004
Guam SwillFest 2004: Pours light yellow with a thin white head. Slightly skunky aroma with hints of coffee and light hops. Streaming carbonation. Light fruit flavor-apple and grape. Finishes slightly bitter with more coffee taste.

Kinz (3737) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2004
Medium yellow, fizzy head slowly fades off totally. Aroma is of corn and a cobweb dusty note. Malt profile is corn dominated, reminiscent of the High Life. There is a smattering of bittering hops on the finish. Not a fantastic beer by any means, but a leg up on most international lagers.

mjg74 (3015) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 17, 2004
Pours golden in color. Smells a little malty. Tastes like watered down corn. Pretty sweet too. Not a whole lot to say about this beer. I like the sweetness, which separates it from US macros, but still not much here.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2004
Light gold in colour with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet and slightly hoppy. Taste is sweet, with a mild bitterness. Ordinary beer.

piscator34 (2341) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 10, 2004
Nasty stuff... golden in colour with little aroma. Lots of canned corn flavor, along with a disgusting sweetness. Yuck! This is one to avoid!

Not too bad, but not too great either. A drinkable Asian lager better than many of the THai lagers. A little too weak flavoured though.
