fletchfighters (1031) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 27, 2013
clear yellow straw color, persistent white head. Early visible carbonation that stops. Nose is corn, husk, bread, herbal citrus, malt and some spicy hops. A little metallic as well for good measure. Sweet canned corn taste. A little herbal lemon as well but dominated by canned corn and bread. Light and prickly feel. Thin and watery. Sharp metallic hop finish. Never again.

vanvenlo (1191) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - OCT 18, 2013
Bottle (19-Oct-13) Sweet lemonade, light herbal aroma. Light amber colour, decent white head but dies and side lacing. Sweet lemonade cherry flavour. Cherry medicinal metallic finish and light cherry herbal aftertaste. This is ok, for a cheapy, $30 per slab of 24, a good price for Australia.

nazzty (881) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2012
UPDATED: APR 12, 2014 Typical Mediterranean beer. Refreshing and slightly tart with a balanced bitterness and relatively weak fullness.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear yellow with white fizzy head. Aroma of toasted grain, extreme subtle hints of licorice, very low mild hop. Flavor is much the same...light watery body, high carbonation. Overall, forgettable.

marcus (6320) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Pours clear golden with foamy white head and a light floral aroma. There is a standard pale malt flavor with slight hop bitterness. Nothing distinctive about this beer.

bhensonb (10702) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Bottle from Half Time. Pours gold with a frothy white head. Aroma quite bready. Med body. Flavor is bready with not a great deal of hop - but there is some - seems herby. It has also got a grape note towards the finish. Much more drinkable than most pale lagers.

crossovert (6945) - Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Rare 12 oz import, prob because it is for an American company. It pours a clear pale gold with a foamy white head that doesn’t leave much lacing. It just smells wrong, like a milkshake or something. The flavor is equally bad: vomit, vinegar, peppers. Horrible beer.

coldbrewky (1418) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle via Beer World. Less than one dimensional. Watery body with some wierd mustyness. pale golden with hardly a head. Nose of nothing. A mere slice above coors light.

crazyvin (1901) - New York, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Poured a medium yellow color with a half inch white head that had nice retention and decent lace. Aroma had a slightly off putting metallic presence to it, but also mild sweet malt notes and some corn. Flavor was decent and crisp some nice sweet malts and some corn. No hops but there was no metallic note from the aroma. A nice crisp finish. Refreshing. Also good for the style.
