[Eyes] Strange botle design looks like a mexican cooler bottle, Brillant yellow color, the head is white and cool in the principle but not creamy. [Nouse] Good malty aroma but where is the hop? [Mouth] Fresh, good carbonation the flavor is smooth.

Bready-hay aroma-tones..... wait.... wait.... also a doughy presence. (Kinda sour-doughy). This brew has a somewhat cloudy golden appearance, accompanied by a quasi-lacey-white head that calms to a thin carpet at the surface of the liquid. The taste is rather interesting.... A slight hint of (light) sweetness, coupled with a medium-bitter flavor. Along with this combination, there is a undertone of sourness that I associate with a fine sourdough bread. Maybe there is even a slight saltiness present. Medium-bodied beer with a creamy texture. Soft carbonation followed by a somewhat long, bitter finish makes this beer a unique experience. Nothing spectacular, but I would drink this if it was the only thing around.

Bottle. Metallic, mega lager. For an import, this tastes remarkably like Crown lager or something. Cheap though..

andreic (53) - IRELAND - OCT 30, 2008
Pale, yellow, clear. Slighty grainy/malty aroma with hint of hops. Tastes slightly malty with a reasonably bitter finish. Body is light. This is a great beer for 2.8%, and would easily fulfil the requirements for a summer session beer.

rjplumer (1007) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 9, 2014
It has a mild hazy appearance with slin film for a head. Almost no aroma which has hints of corn and malt. Some bitterness with a glimpse of maltiness. Clean finish. On the refreshing light side. Good for a quick drink or session if your not looking for much.

SkyCop32 (287) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 20, 2008
This poured clear to yellow with a little grassy aroma. Too much carbonation and not enough hops.

Linnet (1686) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2010
Golden colour, medium white head and actually some lacing. Aroma of malts, corn and some faint hops, no bad chemical notes. Flavour of corn, malts, rather sweet also some grasy hops, again no bad chemical notes. Mouthfeel is average and actually rather full for ABV. T: this is a drinkable beer and in its category a rather good example.

Tmoney99 (13600) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 10, 2010
Bomber Bottle. Poured a clear amber color with an average to large frothy white head that lasted with good lacing. Light grass aroma. Light body with thin texture and soft carbonation. Ligt bitter flavor with a light bitter finish of short duration. Worth trying once.

Generic slosh, but not the worst. I *could* drink this all night, but I’d never remember the taste.. because it has none. Just a watery generic slight bitter sweetness. Robots made this beer.
