Pale yellow coloring with a brief head. Watery, thin feel; tastes slightly fruity with a metallic edge. Finish is very slightly bitter. Nothing special.

SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2004
Some hops in the aroma, not much. Head collapses quickly. Very clean off the palate no bad aftertaste, Some hops. Pretty lame but at least not offensive.

hershiser2 (1859) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Crisp golden, small head. Grassy in the noce- nothing special. Taste is grassy, thin, and watery- not like I thought it'd be at all (it's so popular in Asian restaurants... but then again, so is Bud Light).

Eructoblaster (3705) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2004
Nice golden and effervescent body. The head is thick but fades within 10 seconds. Fair hoppy aroma but the taste is metallic. Short bitter final. Quite disappointing. At least, the 650ml can looks cool...

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2004
Not offensive, but has no flavour besides grass and metal. Slight haze too which is weird. No good.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 20, 2004
Neat can. Pale straw color with a nice tall frothy white head. Initial skunky aroma. Kind of sweet. A bit weak on flavor.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - MAR 20, 2004
Pours a middle of the road amber color with a big , but quickly dissipating head. Aroma is sweet and organic...like fresh cut grass. Flavor is a lager through and through. Body is watery.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2004
Sweet and grassy aroma. Big white frothy head on golden blonde. Very active carbonation - lots o' little bubbles. Very dry simple flavour with a decent bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and slightly sticky which drastically lowers the score for me as I find it too sticky to be a warm weather refresher and not quite flavourful enough to be anything but. Can.
