2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Greeny gold in colour with practically no head. Some malt on the palate, and a lightly lingering finish, but overall, a bit of a disappointment. Have had this in the past and seem to remember enjoying it...but not that much tonight!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
33 cl bottle. Pale golden colour with a nice white head. Aroma of hops and notes of maize and malt. Malty flavour with a dry finish with some crisp, ends up with a metalic unpleasant finish. But overall very common and average.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
355ml bottle. Pale golden colour. No head very little lacing. Aroma is rather offensive. The only flavour I’m getting from it is malt. I guess thats what they were trying for but its not for me.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
my sample was very skunked. I realize this affects my rating, but I feel I need to review it anyways. The aroma was roughly skunk and rotting vegetable matter. Not very nice. Appearance was pale yellow, perhaps urine color? Taste was watered down with cardboard and corn flavor. This was horrible. Ugh.
If I can get a fresher sample, I will revisit this, but I can’t say I’m looking forward to it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured a deep gold yellow color with a small amount of bubbly white head. Aroma was cornish and sweet. Flavor pretty watery and light, but a little more substantiated than most lagers. Overall, not bad with a good spicey thai meal.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (330ml). Poured very pale clear bubbly yellow with a large fizzy-foamy-rocky semi-lasting white head. Aroma is "premium ass" - vegetal, dungy, skunky, foul corn and alcohol. Taste is pretty inoffensive, sweet stale malt, fresh hay, quick off the tongue - fairly sugary mouthfeel, lightish body - apart from the smell, this isn’t bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at the Solomon Cutler, Birmingham. Pretty good Lager here, with a nibble of strength in the backbone to keep the interest. A tinge of salt and bitterness and some prickly malt. Firm.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gotta agree with curvedbeer -- this is one of the best Asian mass-brews (IF you can find a fresh bottle, which can be tough in the States), though Kiuchi’s Hitachino Nest line has some gems as well. Clear light straw-colored liquid produces a constant stream of vigorous bubbles that form a thin white head. Sharp hop aroma with some malt showing as well. Flavor starts with the same hop kick and then settles into a pleasant, surprisingly sweet light malt character. Medium, creamy palate. This simple, refreshing thirst-quencher hits one right down the middle, being neither boring and watery or overly complex. Criminally underrated here in my opinion. Fair enough -- guess that means more for me.
