2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Best before end of 7/05. Poured a medium sized white head with fine-small sized bubbles, lacing was sparse, carbonated, transparent, and a pale yellow hue. Aroma was malty. Period. Flavor was malty and hops. Tingly palate. Medium body.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Zurich - Gold in color, kind of hop/wheat nose with a follow in the taste then it breaks off and loses the flavor for a nice smooth ending.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale straw yellow with moderate head, malty nose. Basic and boring, on par with most mass-marketed North American lagers. Nothing exciting here, but nothing offensive either.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(bottle) Clear golden colour with a medium foamy white head. Corny malty aroma. Sweet flavour and a malty beginning, quite balanced slightly dry and bitter finish. Surprisingly good. Sorry for my bad expectations.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Yellow coloured with a small white head.
Aroma of malts with noppy notes.
Thin watery flavour with notes of malts and hops.
One of the most tasteless beers Iíve had.

Bleh... another strong corn pale lager from the far east. This beer is best with lemon and only when eating a huge spicy meal. Not much going on beyond the corn flavour and aroma. It does give off a huge white foamy head on its bright golden colour.

This is quite a nice bottle, thats aboput it really. There is some sort of carbonated liquid that has alcohol inside but it doesnt taste of anything so im not sure what it is.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Itís funny how some of the lowest rating beers in the world seem to win more awards than all other far superior ones, take Hahn Premium for example (shocker!) racing away with the AIBA award, each and every year itís presented. This is another of the conundrums questionably scooping up awards at festivals but failing miserably on RateBeer (where it seems to matter most). Now I know itís in poor spirits to attack a beer, but sometimes the lines need to be drawn. Tasted from the bottle and poured into a pilsner glass. Clear gold body with high carbonation shooting up to a short loose, bubbly white head. Aroma had an initial bite to it but lapsed into wafts of íDMSí vegeí water, egg yolks and freshly mowed grass. A little better in the mouth, cleaner and quite dry with a high amount of corn and plastic flavours coming through and a little grapefruit and cantaloupe. Highly carbonated, not bitingly, and very light bodied. Finishes off with a husky and gassy forgettable swallow. Quite a boring, one dimensional lager that has taken me years to try, and minutes to forget!!!

I canít say anything too offensive about this pale lager, because thereís simply not that much here. Pale yellow with pale sweet malt aroma and pale sweet malt flavor and yes, a pale watery finish, thereís nothing really bad about it. Except that itís too watered down and flavorless to be a real beer.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours a pale yellow with a frothy white head that quickly dissipates to nothing. Smells lightly grassy and a bit sour, astringent.
Taste is grassy, watery and oddly sweet. Probably the corn I am tasting. Not much here at all and not very pleasant. Thin mouth. Not that drinkable. Will take the sting out of spicy Thai food. There I said something nice.
