long lost bad notes from when had this in Fiji last year. In a can. Even better. Yellow straw color. fast fading white head. Light straw and malt. Some corn sweetness but not much really. Sweet taste. Lots of corn sweetness with sweet malt. After a week in Fiji I thought this was the second best beer I had drank all week long. Much better than the Fiji range that was local. Must have been the can

Botella de 33 cl, adquirida en un supermercado de Wakayama, Japon. Color dorado. Sabor ligeramente a malta, aguado. Mala lager comercial.

Pours a pale straw color with a foamy white head. Aroma of cirtus, malt sweetness and grain. Taste od citrus, light malt sweetness and grainy. Decent bitterness and a fairly clean finish. Light body with a Euro Lager feel. Beer goes quite well with the tropical climate. When in Rome........

Bottle. This is a pretty bad beer but one of only 3 that are regularly available in PNG. When in Rome...

Bottle courtesy of Cantabrian, thank you sir! Pours crystal clear golden yellow, fluffy white headwith good retention. Aroma of white pepper and straw. Taste is plain and lager-like. No real faults. Not a bad developing country lager.

Many grateful thanks to Cantabrian for this beer. I stuck my nose over the glass and for all money, it could have been Becks or Heineken, Beineken or Hecs. It has that self-same international lager aroma (so at least it traveled okay). The flavour was the same as the afore mentioned other lagers. I have to say, for a beer from the back of beyond, it could have been miles worse.

ttoadee (1010) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Straw pours, no real head. Little skunky in the nose, light malt there too. Thin across the tongue, but oddly sweet. Not much finish. I remember this being better in years past.

My biggest complaint when I had it was consistency. Namely that there wasn’t any. I had bottles that I would have rated in the high threes and a couple I threw out with most in between. I looks and pours nicely, aroma seemed off which is not all that uncommon. As others have said it’s cold wet refreshing but unlikely to win any medals. Hopefully Heineken has dealt with the consistency issues

Cold, wet. with essence of beer but on a hot day beggars can’t be choosers.

Pours yellow and fizzy. Smells and tastes like a skunky version of Heineken. Some appley splashes on the finish. Nothing going on.
