Mora2000 (5695) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2011
The beer pours a light clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is exactly what I expected from an imported beer in a green bottle: skunked grain and nothing else. I am holding it against the brewer in my rating since it was their choice to use a green bottle. The flavor has some light skunk notes as well as some grass and grain. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

thirdeye11 (5544) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2011
(330ml bottle thanks to the ever-reliable pale lager provider, Fratto) clear pale yellow with soapy white bubbles. Nose is stinky, skunky, and some toasty grain. Taste of old grain, paper, skunky, and just bad. Grainy linger.

PorterPounder (5540) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Jacksonville, Fl. - Total Wine - 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a sparkling light golden with almost no head. Grainy aroma with hints of honey. Flavor has a sweet bent to it with some honey, some kids cereal - not altogether unappealing. Finishes with a bit of a grassy back end. Mouthfeel is on the thin side. Overall, though, thirst quenching and hit the spot after a long drive on a hot day.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2007
This looks like most of the BMC fizzy yellow brews, pale yellow with a smallish head. After the initial skunk wafts away, there’s a very light sweet malt aroma. No hops. (No lead either, I hope.) Light and highly carbonated, it has a damp bread flavor with a mild sugary sweetness and a soft bitterness that turns somewhat sour in the finish. Once was enough.

jredmond (5330) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 9, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2010 12 oz bottle split with pwn3d. I thought this was better than the original despite the rating, and lower alcohol. The body is very clear yellow. The aroma is really nothing at all. The taste is pretty smooth, nothing really offensive.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - AUG 24, 2009
How can it be pure draft out of a bottle? Dark gold body with a bright white head. The nose is slightly skunky with lots of corn and husky grain notes. The taste is very light with corn and bread crust. There is also some almond shell and club soda in the finish. A decent light brew.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 24, 2007
Straw color with an ultra white foamy head of bubbles. LIght toasted white bread aromas with whiffs of herb, somewhat minty. Quite sweet with a light caramel start followed by some light metallic parts and a hint of not quite ripe raspberries. Really does seem to need some food pairing. Certainly not a stand alone brew.
