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.

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.

Looks much better than it tastes. Grassy aroma followed by a predictable, simple taste. Quite bitter, which I usually like, but it just didn’t quite hit the mark for me.
