2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Alright, I took a bunch of crap from Per and everyone else about this beer, so here goes another CAN. I bought it from the same store, most likely from the same batch, so we'll see how it goes. Cloudy orange tinted golden colour which really does look like a witbier and contains a dense white head. A little worse aroma than the first can, showing some green apples, slight citrus, but also some off aromas. Light-bodied; Mild flavour of apples, mixed with metal and stale hops. Aftertaste missing some of the twang in the aroma, but left fairly clean and refreshed. Overall, this is a bit worse than the first can, but I still feel that it is above average for the style. The appearance and aroma definately make it better than 99% of the other American Standards. I bought this twelve ounce can from Beers of the World in Rochester, New York again. Scores for this rating: 7,5,5,2,11

Kind of a joke for me, I found the can of it and it looks exactly how it is pictured on the left. Funny to see, but let's see how it is: The pour is wierd...especially out of a can. Very hazy orangey golden colour with a thin white head. I can't believe i'm saying this, but a GREAT smelling beer. Smells like Unibroue Ephemere only better: Green apples and lemons are the big factors, but it is actually really nice. Light to Medium-bodied; The taste is fairly mild, but some of the fruityness gets in the taste. A bit of the malt is tasted, but not too much. Aftertaste is also fairly mute with a bit of the sweetness and fruityness showing, but not much. This beer was very fresh, and I can't believe i'm saying this, but it was pretty decent beer. By far the best American Standard i've ever had. I am going to buy a six pack of this and give it to all my friends so they can laugh at me, but when they taste it...they'll realise that it's better than any BMC/MolBatt prodcut!

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pop the can and get a sweet aroma. A closer inspection produces a Belgian yeast-like scent, perhaps Huyghe. Light chill haze. Light gold with a good thick head (Becks 0,3l glass). Taste like artificial sweetner and poor hops. Can best be compared to a non-alcohol beer taste.

Everything about this beer is just okay. The smell is okay, and the flavor. It’s mostly dominated by hops and the finish is a little coating.

From a can. Slight and light fruit flavour. Not bad other than the gross "floaties" that came from the can. I hope they get that water filter working again!

Not that good. Only ever drink it if the 7-11 or family mart is out of the gold medal brew. The aftertaste verges on foul without completely ever crossing the line.
