This is one of those shitty lagers you need to eat spicy foods with to mask the taste...on the upper end of the shittiness scale though...not too offensive. The skunky smell....my god!

Just a 10/20 beer, between a bad beer and a good beer.

Smells like a beauty salon. Strange and funky hair product aromas. The palate is cooked and very bland. No malt or hops to found in this brew. My guess would be around 35% to 40% of the mash is rice.

Smells skunky before you even drink it, which is wierd from a brown bottle. Very malty in flavor, with a light metallic finish. Not really a dreat beer, but I can see where it might be good for working outside or something similar. But not really my cup of tea. Or beer as the case may be.

Decent lager although rather watery. Once again this is a beer good with a side of encilada sauce.

Another one that is best after going without for a number of weeks. Gotta be ice cold or don’t bother!
Earlier Rating: 3/2/2002 Total Score: 3.5
Probably not as good as my memories of it, but after a few weeks at sea, it is wonderful!

Slight aroma of malt, head is frothy although it is minimal. Almost clear pour. Taste is very plain, so much so that it does not differentiate itself from many other middle of the road light lagers. However, it is crisp and clean thus making it very drinkable. Overall not too bad.
