Not too many chemicals but smells of pissy lager. It’s ok, drinkable and a funtop.

Beergeek23322 (2162) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2013
June 2010. Bottle. Malty and hoppy aromas with some floral notes. Flavor is the same. Poured golden yellow with a white head. Not a bad beer.

maekchu (1973) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 12, 2013
Bottle from Asahiya. Nice pils Saaz aroma. Very light and pretty champagne color, crystal clear, not head. Grainy, cookies, a bit of harshness in final. Thin body, but more than many pils. Not bad. I don’t like the green bottle or the weird wire loop on the cap (which broke when I tried to open the bottle).

floydian1 (902) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 10, 2013
330ml green bottle. A decent crisp German-style pilsner with a buttery sweet golden malt backbone balanced by a dry hop bitterness that lingers. Sessionable and refreshing. Pours clear bright golden with moderate white head and lacing.

Hot weather excellence. Doesn’t smell like much! Taste is lean too but in hot weather it’s very quenching. Good one

lesifflebiere (1207) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 5, 2013
D’un doré très cru, elle est couronnée d’une petite quantité de mousse. Parfaitement limpide, mi-mince. Au nez, mouffette et bois. En fouillant un peu, on retrouve du sucre et du houblon, enfouis. Très boisée et houblonnée, avec un sucré genre mélasse. Fort côté salé, mais avec une effervescence trop faible pour parler d’un effet "Perrier". La bouteille verte rajoute un défaut à une bière qui aurait pu bien s’en tirer ; la mouffette, dûe à la lumière qui atteint le breuvage, domine le nez, avant de révéler des flaveurs houblonnées un peu flétries. Sinon, elle est bien goûteuse et assez correcte.

andrewturba (950) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 27, 2013
Pours a clear straw/gold colour with a small creamy white head with some lace. Aromas of spicy floral hops, and pale malts. Flavours of light spicy hops that don’t last into the after taste, some sweet malt and med-high carbonation.

Emeister84 (867) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Biscuits and floral hops on the nose, some faint nutty tones. Clear, pale gold with a fairly lasting white head. Snappy, spicy bitterness up front that mellows into a clean, bready finish. A light and refreshing lager with a brilliant hop spice, lifted by lively carbonation, that stings the tongue. The finish is very clean and abrupt.
