Not particularly impressed by the bottled stuff, pretty bland and watery, brings to mind fresh iceberg lettuce (still better than Asahi though). Had a much nicer experience with an unfiltered draft though at Juju in Kings Cross.

650 ml can from Biggie Wine & Liquor into a Guinness glass. Clear yellow-gold appearance with a big, lingering white head and sticky lacing. Aroma of pale malts, light floral notes, rice, bread, corn and a touch of citrus. Similar flavor, pretty bland with mild sweetness and minimal bitterness. Light to medium body with a soft, creamy feel and a light malty sweet finish.

DSG (6229) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle shared at a tasting at Vovaís place. Thanks mom for this bottle! Clear straw-golden with a white head. Aroma of grains, a corny note and a grassy note. Dry-ish flavor with light sweetness, grains, mild bitterness and a light grassy note. Light-bodied. Quite drinkable when served cold.

Graham77 (255) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 4, 2014
650ml can. Above average 5% lager. Maltier than most in terms of flavour and quite satisfying. Unfortunately it has that familiar cereal aroma I associate with cheap lager m7xed with some fruit aromas. A robust lager.

Fairly strong aroma of hops. Pours clear golden colour but with no head. Taste is medium sweet with floral hops flavours. Medium bodied for the style with average carbonation. Overall, nothing spectacular but not a bad been, My scores may be a little generous as I drank this cold on a hot day.

22 ounce can. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear straw gold color with a half inch white head that stuck around a little while. Thereís also a decent amount of lacing. Not much to the aroma, the brew smells like sweet malt and some light breadiness. I think the taste is pretty much like the aroma, itís sweet and bready, but also has a bit of bitterness in the finish. Also has a flavor that reminds me of Budweiser. Not sure if itís from the rice, but thereís just something similar about it to me. Mouthfeel/body is light, it has a good amount of carbonation and itís easy enough to drink. For what it is, itís not a bad brew at all. Iíd just have to be in a certain mood to drink this again, itís certainly not an every day beer for me. Itís worth a try if youíve never had it before.

slowrunner77 (6016) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 15, 2014
"a little on the dry side, which works a little with the tight carbonation to improve the mouthfeel. otherwise, typical lager. goes pretty well with food, and isnít nasty. 10/09-not quite as nice canned, or maybe it was a fluke..."

RafeAU (176) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - OCT 15, 2014
Free bottle in australia - made under license (Singapore? China? australia? ) boring lager, but at least has more body and malt flavour than many.

eduardovl (914) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
650ml can poured in a chalice. A: Yellow to orange color with a huge and fluffy white head S: Not impressive. Smells like a bad Euro Lager. Like those that smells corn. Also malt and a bit of hops T: Not impressive. Rice and cereals, basically. The only point in favor is its reasonable bitter end M: Very light body and high carbonation D: Not bad. A light beer to drink very cold when itís very hot :) [ BA Review @ 7/2/2010 ]
