355 ml clear bottle bought at ParkNShop SuperStore in Fanling.

Clear pale golden amber colour; Half-finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 20 seconds; Moderate sticky lacing with notable small carbonation; Sweet and slightly pungent aroma of light malt, with corn syrup, light floral, light wet paper, soggy bread and thin grass; Very light sweet taste of thin malt, with strong grains, rice, light wet cardboard, thin syrup, light bread, very light lemon and shades of grass; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is American macro Pale, with thin body but fair light-weight malt and lots of adjunct grains. Restrained light sweetness, light wet paper is tolerable. Fair light bread and very low hops. Not as bad as I feared… Hoppiness is thin grass nose, lemon and grass notes in taste. No bitterness, just thin malt and wet paper non-finish; Wet after taste. Very easy to mouth.

Comments: This one may have a bad rep, but I think it’s quite a so-so macro, which is slightly better than Budweiser and definitely better than Dos Equis XX - malt is light but it’s there, adjunct and wet paper taste is low and tolerable, and very low sweet (that’s what I like). Without the hops, maybe a wedge of lime may actually do this one some justice. Borderline drinkable.

Nothing special. Summer day thirst quencher but nothing more. Clean finish. Bland overall.

Pours a clear straw. Smell is a stale malt and the taste has a hint of crispness but not much else.

Refreshing but I don’t like the taste and hard to call it a beer. I prefer Corona.
