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.

I’m not entirely convinced that this beer isn’t actually a mix of crappy beer, corn syrup and some type of urine, either human or animal. I’m awaiting the lab results. For some reason I also thought it would be fun to review two "classic" Pilsners back to back, one a true classic (Pilsner Urquell), the other one...this.Then I also thought it would be a good idea to drink the Urquell first. It wasn’t. I should’ve started with this travesty instead. Thank god I have another Urquell in the fridge. To be fair, if the lab results don’t actually contain urine, I may bump my review up to a 2.

Another adjunct lager. Low on flavors and aromas, light bodied and slightly astringent. Nothing noteworthy.

330ml tinnie consumed on a Hong Kong stopover. A below average pale lager with sweet corn malts and a low hop bitterness. Typical mass produced affair. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

330 ml bottle. Pale straw gold color. Large foamy white head. Light grainy malt nose redolent of corn. Sweet malt flavor with more corn. Light body and flavor. Just a whisp of dry hops in finish. Not much going on here.

Zarkam (398) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2014
330ml bottle from a supermarket in Tallinn, clear gold colour, medium fizzy mostly lasting white head, fair lacing. Moderately malty aroma of grain, hay and corn, light spicy hops. Taste is initially slightly sweet and not much else, turning into a mildly bitter finish with a slightly alcoholic feel. Light body, dry texture, lively carbonation. A fairly boring and uninteresting below-average lager.

Bottle from a karaoke bar in Quezon City, Philippines. Color of transparent gold with foamy white head. Aroma of malts and funk. Taste of malts, funk and corn. Probably one of the worst beers I’ve had, but it was semi-cold on a stifling hot July night.

JaKeAFC (517) - ITALY - JUL 8, 2014
33 cl bottle as "San Miguel Premium Pale Pilsen" from a supermarket in HK, 18.90 HK$, quite expensive, made in New Territories, HK. Yellow color, big bubbly white head. Subtle nose of grains. Aroma: at first was "yuck!", but then mild grains, corn, glucose. After a while a lagery tone wakes up, cornflakes, alcohol already noticeable. Taste is uncertain, flat. Quite unrefined and average, light bodied, slick feel, carbonated, anonymous finish. Not really worth the price

AgentAle (628) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 7, 2014
Aroma is a skunky dry maltiness withight sweetness. Light graininess and partial sulphur notes. Taste is light crystal malt character with slight bland dry malt finish. Appearance is a clear gold with a thin pearl head that retains poorly
