1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

Can purchased from the local Ranch 99 -- too lazy to input it as a place just to show distribution in California. Pours clear golden with a medium white head that dissipates slowly with some lacing.. Aroma is corn syrup, grass, cardboard. flowers. Flavor is actually not bad, although with a cardboard note that is annoying. Light sweet, not much actual bitterness, but refreshing.

Jan 2007: from BA. Green bottle, 600ml, claiming to be a Gold Medal Beer, whoever voted for this beer was got at!
Paler than a pale thing, on international pale day, this lager looked like Euro fizz, but even paler, light, no very light, almost a see through watery, urine after a heavy day of drinking Bitburger (you must be pissed if you think I’ve done that).
Taste-less, aroma-less, mouthfeel-less, drinkable-less etc, etc.
If I am stuck in an Island with a dead bloke and a crate of this beer, I would drink rain water before I would open a bottle of Taiwan Beer.

From a bottle. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Aroma of rice and corn. Flavors same. Pretty typical Asian lager.

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!

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.
