Head is way too frothy. Palate is marked, but dissappears quickly. Also losses carbonation quickly. Poor flavour, like a poor mans Singha Gold.

Golden color with a good frothy head (didnt last long though) was what I poured into my glass, smelled the aroma of hops and then there wasnt much more,easy to drink but not my cup of tea er beer.

This is the first beer i've ever had out of a can in my life. nice can though. reminds me back when Volgon and i were kids we used to have a pretty big beer can collection. i have no idea what happened to it...i guess our parents threw them out. anyways...i digress. this beer had a pungent wafting aroma. i could almost smell the damaged rice/Bud-ness in this one. piss-yellow color. kinda fizzy and it just tastes yellow. is it horrible? no, not entirely. would i have it again? nope, not a chance.

djbuddha (90) - Many, Louisiana, USA - JUL 15, 2003
Poured out an extremely light yellow with a large head. The aroma was good, but not great. Lots of carbonation, and goes down extremely smooth. This is an average beer, I don't think I'd buy it again unless I find it cheaper.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2003
Color is a pale clear yellow with a white head of foam that faded fast, leaving some smallish bubbly lacing. Smells faintly of sweetish malt and grain of bread or cornbread with barely a hop in the back. Taste is crisp and grainy with a slight sweet cornbread taste thats smooth and easy. There's a little hop in the back, but hardly noticeable unless a big swig is taken from your glass. This is a OK drinker, nothing outstanding, a bit airy and watery, thinned out and could use some body and flavor.

WabashMan (1017) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JUL 13, 2003
Assuming this is the correct beer, since mine's in a most interesting can, I have to start off by saying the look of the beer is better than I expected, with a large white head and pale/medium golden color. Nose is fairly light and a little bitter. Not much here, though. The flavor is a little earthy and pretty watery. Again, not much to comment on...

surfahoy (1) - USA - JUL 11, 2003 does not count
Since taste is a subjective affair, here's my opinion. Simply the best! Beats all after a surf session, or with any kind of food (ok, Singha maybe better with Thai ordered extra hot)!

Cashazza (217) - Morganville, Maryland, USA - JUL 2, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2003 Good summer beer; yellow lager, lots of carbonation, head quickly dissipates, weak flavor -- though pleasant -- watery, faintly hoppy, and very sweet. Could definitely use some more umph.

TChrome (1447) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUL 2, 2003
Rather bland but drinkable Japanese brew. Aroma is lightly hoppy with a bit of hay aroma. Beer pours yellow, though not fizzy with a moderate head that is retained. Flavor is light hops and maybe just a tiny bit skunky. OK.

Nice color, but that's where it ends; the taste resembles Heineken, but it is only a faint resemblance - there's a really bad aftertaste
