Pours yellow with a generous white head. Smells skunky. Tastes of dry malt and corn. Very inoffensive.

On of those steel cans brought back from Taiwan thanks to Wayne. Thanks a ton man! Pours a clear golden color with a tiny white head. The aroma is sweet malts, rice and grainy notes. The taste is smooth; lots of rice and grainy flavors, some light earth malts, light hops and a very clean and light flavor. Very quaffable and clean. Not bad at all. My first Taiwanese beer! Thanks Wayne.

[Canned. Thx gnoff] Pale golden with a brief, white head. Sourish aroma with sugary notes. Dry, grassy, cereal flavour. Low bitterness.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Bottle: Very pale yellow with a dinkus white head. Although not listed in the ingredients, I picked of a whiff of corn syrup sweetness in the faint aroma. Mayhaps a touch of floral hops. Not in the taste, though. It was more reminiscent of the aroma belched out from the Argo plant outside of the city (Chicago), corn byproducts, a hit of starch. It finishes on a watery, sweet note with a dash of metallica.

<i>Can (33 cl), thanks gnoff and his friend</i>. Pale golden, medium white head. Bready malt aroma with some fudge and dusty hops. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. Medium to low bitterness, quite dry. Bland.

12 oz can. Light orange gold color. Small head. Aroma is malt and rice, touch of grain and grass. A medium bodied pale lager. Malts are slightly sweet with a touch of corn and rice. Mild hops. Kind of sweet and thin tasting, buy not bad for an Asian pale lager. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

SaintMatty (5257) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2009
330ml Can (Thanks FatPhil) - Pale golden with a white head. Grassy aroma with straw and hints of corn and lemon. Buttery and malty taste with corn, malt and some buttery sweetness. Rather odd, but drinkable.
