You can drink it if you are very thirsty, for example eating spicy food on a hot summer night. Otherwise, choose something else.

Looks alright but is unbalanced and horrible if not cold. I prefer the gold.

Very light colour, very active beer. Strong hoppy aroma and flavour. A better beer than I was expecting, this was probably due to its adequate chilling.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light yellow with big white head. Newmown hay, herbs, malt and a little bit of minerals in the nose. Very fruity taste (strawberry and tutti-frutti), alcoholic and sweet not really hoppy finish. Perfect with spicy asian food. I like this one.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sweet malt to start with but aroma soon disappears leaving a trace of hop notes. Slightly syrupy fruit and malt with spicy hop in the mouth with some hoppiness reappearing in the aftertaste only to be overpowered by an alcoholic backdraft

As a premium american lager- not bad. Straw color with a fluffy head. Sweet malt with noble ísweetí hops to add bitterness.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2005 OK, this wins the prize for the most horrifically overrated beer in my ratings: either itís got a lot worse or my tastes have got a lot more refined - probably neither. Anyways, itís sweet in a turnip/parsnip kind of way, has next to no discernible hop character, and has flabby raw alcohol in the finish that the beer canít contain, like diarrhoea spilling out the sides of a babyís nappy.rer8: this isnít THAT bad in fact itís perfectly serviceable in a kind of becksy way. some noble hops in flavour even if not very bitter, grainy malt, dry, extremely light body. gets a few marks for the fact that itís not adjuncty and DMSy like most other asian lagers.
