UPDATED: JAN 20, 2012 Bottled. Hazyish yellow colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma of maize with hints of bread. Smooth flavour of bready malt, a bit grassiness and bitterish hoppy finish. Maize and hoppy bitterness in aftertaste. Very wellbalanced, but not that special. 6 2 6 3 10
Bottled. Pale yellowish golden colour, mediumsized white head, that leaves slight lace. Aroma is maize, mild grains, some bready malts as well as grass and some mild floral and herbal notes. Flavour is quite similar in a quite nice balance. Quite ok for a "big" lager.

Pretty mild all the way around-aroma, flavor and overall impression. An easy beer to drink, but nothing that stood out. A good lager with medium body.

Thin laced head, crisp, no bitterness. Nothing stands out about this beer, but somewhat refreshing.

Had it on tap with dinner. Straw Yellow in color, thin head, and a bit of carbination. No real noticable aroma. First flavor was that of any other lager..nothing special. However, had a nice bitter finish that was surprising. Too expensive for what you get, and very over-hyped. Not a bad beer, but would not buy again.

golden pour that is attractive in the glass with a thin lacing white head. very light aroma that has a hint of earthiness and straw. taste is light mellow malt with a lemony finish that has very little bitter. rubbery mouthfeel.

Draft in Whistler, Canada. Golden yellow with an average white head. I had expected more, and I don’t know why. Hoppy aroma, but flavor was not overwhelming memorable, and the aftertaste was a bit metallic.

Had several cans of this on British Airways while flying to London (March, 2005). Looks and smells like a low priced American standard. But it doesn’t have that awful overbearing corn sweetness that dominates most American beers. Light bitterness, goes down very smooth with a medium finish. Very refreshing.
