thirdeye11 (6071) - 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.

Aroma is mildly skunkiness and grains. The flavor is grains, mild sweetness and a slightly tart finish.

JPDIPSO (5667) - 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.

Cornfield (5570) - 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.

jaghana (5522) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle 33cl, A clear yellow beer with medium head. Nose is typical lager like, aroma is very low, low hops, low malt, very boring, nice label but nothing more except poor wet paper on aftertaste.

heemer77 (5295) - 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.

ChainGangGuy (4808) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, pale yellow body with a small, white head. Smell: Fresh, clean rice aroma with a waft of water-soaked grasses. Taste: Not much to go on here, folks. Some puffed rice, some clean water, a medium sweetness, and a very slight grassy hop character. Clean, sudden finish. Just like life, it’s over before you know it. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Again, there’s not alot going on here. It’s okay, perhaps, if you’re looking for something tremendously light, but then the optimal choice would be: water.

luttonm (4721) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2010
Liter bottle from asian market in Seattle. Palest pour on a beer I’ve ever seen, minimal white head, looks like pale ginger ale. Nose is whiff of vinegar and grain/corn. Taste has some honey-like sweetness but otherwise fizzy corny malting. Sweetness is nice, works to cut spicy asian food, but pretty terrible otherwise. Serves its purpose.

nick76 (4379) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2008
The aroma is full of adjuncts and rather malty with a grassy hop. The appearance is pale gold with a small head. The flavor is water like with rice and grass. The palate is watery. Better than the regular with no funk but nothing great.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2009
Green 330mL bottle, clear faint yellow. Skunk aroma. Typical. Crisp refreshing rice flavor. Finish with a light floral. I would definitely drink this again. It’ll do in a pinch.
