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. .

Can 330 mL. Golden colour with quickly disappearing head. Aroma is bad - totally cat piss, some notes of floor cleaning liquid as well. Taste isn’t so bad as aroma gives - some notes of malts, hay, cereals. Very carbonated. I really don’t like the aroma - no thanks!

Bottle poured to pint glass very cold beer Appearance: Light orange, minimal head, a lot of lacing Aroma: Strong scent smell of alcohol, nothing else Taste: not really great Mouth feel: very carbonated Overall: good beer for the hot weather in the Philippines, and to get drunk quickly at the fastest rate and the most inexpensive way

nazzty (1156) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2016
Surprisingly tasty and much better than the Spanish version of this beer. This one is much more balanced between hops and malt to give a refreshing and crispy taste.

trapped (1773) - New York, TURKEY - NOV 28, 2015
Bottle thanks to a friend. Clear pale yellow with smallish foamy white head, sweetish doughy aroma, high carbonation, somewhat crisp malt taste, abrupt finish. Not too bad for a generic lager.

Manslow (749) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 12, 2015
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.
