Pours a watery yellow with no head whatsoever...looks dead. Aroma of hay and faint alcohol. Flavor is also like hay. Mouthfeel is watery up front but shockingly gets a little lively at the finish which is abrupt (thankfully). This beer truly sucks.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 21, 2010
Yellow colored with vanishing white head. Sweet and grainy aroma with some grassy-lemony note, some cardboard also comes up. Thin to medium bodied. More cardboard in start of flavor, lemon and sweetness last in aftertaste.

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.

Well, it is not as bad as I feared. Bottle pours clear yellow with almost no head. Musty metallic like scent. Taste is lightly sweet with a dry cornish? finish.

12oz bottle, courtesy of argo0. Thanks, Aaron! Pours a clear, pale golden color; thin off-white head with patchy lacing. Light aroma, with lots of skunkiness and light sugar; not terribly offensive, but not good. Light-to-medium mouthfeel: candy sugar, light skunkiness following through from the aroma; reasonably drinkable and crisp, but kind of grainy and stale overall. Not exceptional. Medium finish: sugars, grainy malts, and a touch of mineral bitterness.

12oz bottle. Pretty much your standard Asian Pale Lager. Pours a clear pale yellow with a 2 finger thick off white head. Nose of grain, skunk, and a touch of herbal hops. Not bad with Chinese take out.

Can’t say I know where to get it, because their distributor was a sponsor of a trivia bowl I was in, put on by the Asian American Journalists Association. At least I can say a light lager does indeed go well with spicy Asian food. Pours a decent lager yellow color. An okay beer at first seems like there are malts in the front. Taste is on the sugary side, but still close to style. At least it cools me after some chili chicken and bao rolls.

Bottle from BevMo. Light yellow in color. Aroma is skunky cardboard. Flavor is of corn and paper. Not a good combo. Pretty much garbage.
