No real colour, pours to a white head that falls off to nothing in a second flat. No lacing. Low malt notes if any. Bitter but not from hops almost artificial flavour. This beer is bloating and needs to be chilled to near zero to reduce to high carbonation. I am not sure why this one gets accolades as it is just another pale lager brewed from heavy use of corn sugar or similar adjunct. .

Butelka. Piwo wypite i wyprodukowane w Hong Kongu ale przez RB zaliczana do Filipin , więc tutaj oceniam. Kolor złoty, typowy lager może trochę poniżej innych lagerów. Na upały.

JorgeLee (1511) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle, sampled all over Manila. Light golden yellow. Sweetish. Lacking hop definition. Fairly standard inoffensive hot country lager.

Kolor: jasno ?ó?ty, s?omkowy, czysty, klarowny. Piana koloru bia?ego, do?? obfita i ca?kiem d?ugo pozostaje na powierzchni piwa. Aromat zaraz po otwarciu butelki pojawi?y si? s?odkawe nuty malinowe, troch? nut s?odowych, mydlanych z odrobin? metalu. Smak: no có? tylko metal i nic wiecej. Goryczki nie czu?em, wysycenie wysokie a alkohol nie wyczuwalny.

Drjohnrock (592) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 11, 2015
Poured from an 11.2 ounce bottle at Christine’s Casual Dining on Harrison Avenue in Dent. Medium gold hue, aroma graded leniently due to my sinus condition, bittersweet flavor with a slight sour note, a little more heft than a typical US macro. Slightly above average pale lager.
