3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can given to me from England. Aroma was little metalic but that may be due to the fact it was warm for awhile duing transport then re-refrigerated. Yellow body with big foamy head. Left lots of lacing and had some bubble action in the body of beer. Flavor would compare to most domestics in the states, but this one was not bitter or watery. Taste was smooth and at 111 degrees today a good refresher.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Actually very mild in all respects. Very muted nose, though a bit skunky. Pale yellow, with a very large head, and extremely carbonated. Flavor is not nearly as macro as I expected, with a bigger hop profile than I anticipated. Washes down fairly well, but leaves you with a feeling of emptiness, especially since it’s so thin.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Medim yellow with a ring of bubbles. Nose is slightly skunky and sweet. Taste is very average and tastes like a sweet macro. The sweetness is a little over the top and does not mix well with the slight hop presence. Not offensive in anyway, but not great. This would probably improve considerably if I were eating with it.

On Tap at Kahootz: Pretty light in flavor with relatively little carbonation. No strong hops or malts present. It had a sour grape aftertaste. This isn’t one that I would go for again.

Very easy drinking lagerwhich with the strong marketing it has recieved is the reason it is so popular not a lot of taste but a good everyday drinking beer

had this on tap in toronto. i could detect no aroma, but the golden color, and thick head were inviting. the flavor was very mild with only the slightest hint of a bitter aftertaste. overall, i found nothing exciting about this inoffesive brew.

I finally tried this the other day. I was not that impressed, but it was the only thing on tap that appealed to me. Nice glass though.

Not very aromatic , but the taste is rather good. Stronger than most lagers with a slight touch of bitterness. Propably one of the best mainstream beers that you can find practically everywhere (at least here)

my friend said that this was really good, but i tried it and wasn’t too impressed. rather common taste, maybe, mabye a bit of spice. Not worth paying more for this.
