Bottle. Pale yellow pour, with a small, bubbly, white head. The aroma is rice, pine, tangerines, and apples. Very sweet, with some fruity esters. Light body, a little effervescent, and silky. Overall, this is a surprisingly flavorful, light, and fruity lager.

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 (1882) - 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.

shrubber85 (9325) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle. Sour barley malt and hay aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet barley malt and lightly bitter hay flavor. Not horrible and surprisingly an import beer in a green bottle that was only slightly skunked.

Canmoore (332) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
Pours a clear straw color, with a pillowy white head. Aroma includes notes of tart apples, sweet pear, and some crackery malts. Tasting notes include apple, pear, tannins, soapy, and a sweet finish.

Not as bad as I expected sweet bamboo like flavor mouth carbonated a bit over the top. Almost like a gin. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
