Pale beer, the medium head disappeared quite quickly. Aroma of grass and malt, not very pleasant however. Hopes are hardly distinguishable. Roses are red, their spikes are green, the taste is so bitter, the body is thin.

330 ml bottle @ North China Buffet. The fact that I ordered this at a Chinese buffet was definitely an indicator of what I was about to experience. Pours a clear pale yellow with lively carbonation and a big but short-lived white head. Aromas are sweet grainy malts and grain. Tastes are light malts, adjunct (corn? rice? Don't know) and light grain. Thin, lively carbonation, virtually nil finish. Inoffensive offering but very sessionable, I could drink eleven teen of these. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

12 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a clear gold color with a white head of foam. Aroma is corny and grainy with a bright sweetness to it. Reminds me of rhe beer I drank in the carribbean. Subtle grass and skunk character to it. Light in body and easy drinking.

Bottle with 4,5%. Pours a clear yellow golden color, topped with a frothy white head. Standard malty aroma with slightly smelly grains. Taste is sweet at start, watery and light body, minimal bitterness in finish. Passable when ice cold, otherwise piss.

Atom (2172) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Bottle pours an effervescent pale golden with a large quickly dissipating white head. Pizza aroma, oh that’s the oven. Stall corn, mild chemical and wall paper paste. taste is mildly sweet, kinda like drinking a wet noodle really, grain with yeast, paper. Glad I’ve been drinking most of the night. Tastes like communism.
