When the style is "premium beer" you know you have problems.. A: Light aroma. Lager yeastiness. A hint of lemon and malt. A: Looks... cheap? Head retention is nothing. Color is a light yellow orange. T: Tastes light. Like water. A hint of maltiness. A hint of yeastiness and lemon citrus. P: Light... like soda water. Overall not the worst macro Iíve had but not the best. And itís still a macro.

Coming in a very distinctive shiny silver can, it certainly stands out in the off licence. Appearance: The appearance was of a lovely clean looking golden yellow colour, with a pretty good white frothy head on pour Head does die a little, no real lacing Nice carbonation, bubbling along throughout. Is definitely a nice looking beer, even if the head is non existent. Aroma: Not trying to be funny but thought it smelt of shite, ha ha, now I know thatís obviously the sweet rice mixed around with the hops, grains and sweet malts. but Jesus I didnít like the smell one bit at all, very stinky smell, bit of a generic beer smell too, Japanese style, but not very appealing. Faint initial taste of the malts , not much to saviour, but very clean and smooth, very easy to drink Taste only really kicks in at the back end, with the rice and the grassy hops kicking in Has a slight kick to it alright, can definitely feel the alcohol, sweet and bitter, but not overbearing. Ok beer, not a bad beer, nothing offensive, not much taste, but very smooth and easy to drink, but it would be nice to actually taste some real flavours.......something......anything at all....come on! And not just a bland generic taste of nothingness

Headbanger (3748) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2016
22oz can 5/5/16 (Jewel-Osco Clearance Rack)-40į in Mug-Pours clear golden with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of sweetness, corn and slight malt. Taste of the same. This light bodied brew is not bad as I was expecting worse.

Poured from the bottle. A rather malty smelling and tasting beer. Not good, not bad, mediocre beer.

CanIHave4Beers (3899) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - APR 25, 2016
Can, shared by me... in the library... just now.
Pours a pale golden color, perfectly clear with lots of little bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass, itís got a very well retained and attractive fluffy white head.

The aroma is a little tinny and mostly sweet & doughy with a little bit of herbal character to it.

The flavor is fine, I mean it tastes like a above average industrial lager. Itís got a nice bit of herbal bitterness and a pretty defined rice flavor, itís a touch sweet... but not horribly so, itís also got a mild fruitiness to it. Honestly the hop character here really carries this beer, itís pleasant and bitter and just mutes some of the less desirable flavors a touch.

A nice big can without information about the hops and malts. A golden clear beer without character with a nice white head, the body is thin, light bitter, no smell, no finish, (I have a 0.65l can with batch 0127 and best-before date 16OCT16.)

Pleasant surprise, if I was gonna drink a lager this would be a perfect choice. From a large can, perfect carbonation and head, a bit of bitterness. Just nice.
