2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear Golden color with a quickly disappearing head. Very light malty aroma and taste with virtually no aftertaste. An avarage mass produced lager. Watery like the most of them.

Gee, this wasn’t that good. Offputting monkey urine smell. It tasted slightly better than it smelled, but as the beer warmed it became almost undrinkable.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Purchased at Stanlee’s in Tumon, Guam. Pours very pale, clear yellow, with almost no head. Aroma is typical lager. A little cat piss, a few hops and malt. Flavor was kinda skunky, and even though I just pulled the bottle from a container of ice, it seemed warm. I can’t see drinking another one of these.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle BB 11/10/07) Malty and slightly fruity aroma with a hint of maize (corn). Pale golden colour, clear and small, white, more or less fully diminishing head with a hint of lacing. Slightly acidic, fruity and rather heavily malty flavour. Medium-bodied, slightly alcoholic and lively carbonated palate. 28/12/06

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale golden body with thin, though lasting, white head. Aroma of grass, grain and a hint of sugar. Medium bodied, not as watery as most pale lagers. Quite a bit of carbonation though. Started off sweet, had a bitter finish. Nicer than most of these faux exotic beers but still not great.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear yellow with a thin, white head. It has a fresh, slightly hoppy aroma with some malt. The taste is of fresh, crisp malt with a nice hop profile. This is definitely a good pilsner.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at thai restaurant. Pours an appetizing golden yellow whin thin, white head. Not much flavor at all. Rather neutral taste, with a rather hoppy finish with distinctive bitterness and notable alcohol. Goes well with food, probably doesn’t hold up too well on its own.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Straw yellow, no head. Aroma is a little spicy and herbal. Taste is typical lager, nothing really stands out. Way too watery. Good to knock down some of the heat of my pad thai, but not much else.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I have to give this one minor props since it was one of my old girl’s favorites. Some hoppiness initially that finishes slightly bitter. Not remarkable in any area other than obviously more interesting than American standards. Here’s an idea - try it with Thai food!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The colour is yellow; the semi-compact foam builds a quite high head.
The smell is dry-bitter, fresh and rather neutral.
The bitterness is surprisingly large; it is almost like drinking a German pilsner. There are some notes of dry malt, some white bread and a fine citric touch. The aftertaste is a bit bitter sour with notes of lemon/lime. It is rather long and dry.
Mouthfeel is quite strong and pleasant with lots of big bubbles.
A good lager with more flavour than I had expected, and it works very well with spicy food.
