theisti (3219) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - DEC 31, 2012
11.2 oz green bottle gifted to me as part of a World Market beers of the world 9 pack. The pour is a clear yellow golden with a 2 inch white head that breaks down quickly with with thick bubbles. The aroma is cereal grain, lightly sweet, faint and not much going on. The taste is a weird chemical sweetness right away, unpleasant, followed by a flat floral sweet, and then a bit of cardboard in the back. The palate is light to medium bodied, low carbonation level, and the dirty vegetal finish. Flat, watery and flabby, I could only drink a few ounces of this. Gross stuff.

floydian1 (929) - FNQ, Australia, - AUG 30, 2012
Bottle at Night Markets, Hong Kong. It is another typical Asian-style macro lager with barely there aroma and taste of corn syrup, rice, cardboard and a very light hop presence. Light-medium body with a watery texture. Clear straw yellow appearance with transient small white head.

Bottle (330ml):
Straight away the smell of this beer reminded me of Becks but a little sweeter towards the end, there is a clean and crisp aroma with a tinny bit of skunk in there and some grain too. Very much a pale lager with a touch of lager hops and corn with some rice as well.
Quite a pale straw looking beer with a thin, bubbly looking white head that fades to a tiny lacing around the glass after about twenty seconds.
Quite a crisp and very sweet tasting pale lager with a lot of corn and more grain than I would have liked from it. It is light tasting and full of various adjuncts. It is perhaps a little watery right at the end too.
A thin and light bodied lager with not much in the way of substance and slightly too watery for my liking. It does get it right with regards to carbonation though and is easy enough to drink as opposed to being overly gassy as I was fearing.

This wasn’t nearly as bad as I had feared. It is drinkable and has a nice crisp sweetness about it and would be an excellent thirst quencher in a warmer climate.

seymour (1414) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JAN 3, 2012
Tasted from green bottle into standard pint glass. Part of a Beers of the World mix-pack. Poured a straw color, with a fluffy white head, somewhat lasting with a tiny bit of lace. Aromas of grain, grass, extremely faint (noble?) hops. Flavor was almost entirely neutral, just clean, mellow, cereal grain water. Dry finish, no aftertaste at all. Not bad, not very good either.
