Frothy white head. Very fine bubble carbonation.Perfumy, slightly sweet, slightly hoppy,watery flavor. Some salt taste.Very pale yellow color. Nice heavy can.This doesn't seem to taste the same as when I had it in the early eighties,seems more watered down. I really liked the small keg cans then, too.

Golden Amber color, poured correctly to a small cream head. Mild taste that went well with Hibachi Dinner.

Huge frothy head that laces nicely. Nose is basically nothing. I had to stick my honker in the foam to smell the skunky hops. Taste is faint with hints of hops and malt. Finish is flat and dry.

Ah.. the 2 liter can with it's own plastic handle and screw-on cap!!! Did I mention kareoke? Good taste, a bit sweet, but with old hop taste - similar to Heineken.

For some reason the "can" version sucks. Slighlty better taste than your average light beer but still very watery. I am not sure it was worth importing this all the way across the ocean. I can't think of a circumstance why I would buy it again.

Occasionally, I would get the 2L cans when I was a student. I actually wrote quite detailed notes on it (take with grain of salt because they're five years old and more than once this beer has really sucked): soft body hidden beneath the mainstream carbonation, and a buttery, perfumy, fruity, hoppy character, with a grassier, maltier finish, with fruitiness in the end.

Tasted like something G. Heileman should brew. Very cheap tasting. It was also very watery. Way to expensive for what you get. You could buy a 6 pack of Pabst for what one of these cost and have the same damn thing.

(2Feb2003--633mL bottle) This beer boasts a beautiful head. Thick, even, persistent, and attractively lacy. Aside from this, the beer is a "macro-swill". What hops? What malt? How do you spell rice? Not too bad with sushi; at least it was dry enough to keep my palate clean for the food.

Nice golden color, but from here its all down hill, watery and bland, bugger all flavour, one thing good about this was the size of the can.
