MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2004
Pale yellow body with a fizzy white head. Lots of carbonation present. Looks like an amber soda!!! Aroma is corn, slight hops, and sweetness, but a chemically sweetness at that. Taste is watery, corny, can, and sweet hops. Watery mouthfeel. Good for hot summer days when you have nothing else.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2004
Bottle: Pale gold with a short rocky white head. Slight hops aroma with very faint malt and what I can only assume was rice. Flavour was interesting but thin and watery. The adjuncts (rice?) give a very smooth feel to the flavour. Slightly sweet and mildly bitter. Nice for a hot day.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - AUG 23, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 [12 oz. bottle] Poured a pale straw color with a thick and bubbly white head. Bitter and hoppy aroma with touches of corn. Bitter and malty flavor with strong hints of corn. Good lawnmower beer.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - AUG 23, 2004
Not bad for a pale lager, saved mostly by the hoppy finish. Pours a clear golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is predominantly malt and corn. Flavor is much the same, with the unexpectedly pleasant addition of the aforementioned bitter hop finish. Decent beer.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 21, 2004
NSLC Beer Gala. Can. Pale golden colour with a fizzy white head. Mostly corn aroma, slight toasted notes. Corn and wheat flavours, slight acidic/astringent finish. Light to medium bodied, slightly watery mouthfeel.

A decent tasting lager, not too much taste however. Okay tasting, had it in Sakura in Maryland

TBone (16116) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2004
Bottled, alc. 4.7%, label said Premium Lager, brewed in EU
Golden color, good steady white head. Sweet, a bit even an ale-like nose. Quite plain simple mouthfeel, sweetish rice flavor.

mjg74 (2975) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 9, 2004
Pours gold in color with a big foamy white head. Tastes like a decent pale lager. A little grainy, a little sour. Not too bad, but is nothing to get excited about.

mongkut4 (132) - Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Not much to say. Not much flavor. Sour, but not in a good lambic way. A Japanese macro alla Bud.
