500 ml can with wrapping on top (!) bought at 7-Eleven on Lock Road, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Clear light golden colour; Three finger head with crumpety white foam which lasts for 3 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with fizzy carbonation; Pungent aroma of full Lager malt, with tartness, honey, strong floral, malt sugar, strong bread, lemon and grass; Close to light sweet taste of very light Lager malt, with floral, molasses notes, light bread, thin lemon and very light bitter grassy hops; Light body. Thin and slightly slick palate; Mouth Feel is thin Lager maltyness in a watery background, very wishy washy, close to drinking water. Light floral with only sweet notes, Light bread with thin lemon to round. Pretty vacant!... Hoppiness is strong floral, lemon and grass in nose, same in taste but a lot weaker; Bitterness is faint for an abrupt, very low astringent light malt finish; Slightly dry after taste. Watery and very easy to mouth.

Comments: Beyond the good looks and head, this one is simply a dud - slightly annoying tart aroma, with very thin malty and non existing hops as if this is a squeaking clean Happoshu, but for goodness sake this is supposed to be a full Lager. What’s the point to have a beer water like this. A big NO!

Clear golden beer with little white head vanished quickly. Aroma is sweet malty and hints of hops. Taste has some sweetness and little bitterness, watery. Dry crisp finish. Drinkable refreshing beer, little bit boring maybe.

33 cl can. Pours light golden colour with a nice white head. Aroma is quite sweet and malty. Flavour is dull, corn and malty, with a very harsch finish. No thanks.

Pours pale golden with a creamy white head. Aroma of pale malts, grain and slight hops. Taste is crisp, sweet corn, grain and a little hay. Smooth mouthfeel. Mild carbonation.

Vissa öl dricker man, om jag förstått reklmarna rätt, för att få vara sig själv en stund. A. Le Coq Premium dricker man för att förneka sig själv. Se det som ett tillfälle att träna upp den inre styrkan för att orka bära besvikelser. Detta är rena spenaten för själen - och ungefär detsamma för gommen.

Aroma of grains. Taste is grain and bit strawy. Some faint lemon. Quite smooth mouth-feel. It is fine.

Pours with a good amount of white and fluffy foam. Color is light orange, typical lager color, but still nice. Carbonation seems inviting. Aroma is a bit dirty having some sink or sewer aromas, but also faint malt notes and weak hoppy aromas. The aroma is not anything special. Palate on the other hand is pretty well balanced and sharp, like in this kind of "thirst quencher" lager it should be. It’s a bit watery, but in this case I don’t consider it a bad feature. Taste is also slightly watery and has typical "bulk lager" tastes, mainly that of malt and hops. There’s an okay amount of bitterness and the taste is refreshing. Especially I like about this beer that it doesn’t have that metallic taste that bulk lagers usually have. Therefore I consider this beer to be "better" of the bulk lagers. This is a refreshing beer, but nothing exceptional. However, when I desire the "bulk lager" taste, then I tend to grab this beer, because of its neutral and non-metallic taste. It’s not a special beer, but in its own genre I find it quite good and think that the score for this is a bit of an understatement, considering the "genre" this beer belongs to. I find nothing to complain in the taste of this beer, even if it’s nothing special.

500ml bottle. Clear golden colour, medium white head. Nose is malty, bit corny. Malty, somehow tart, boring taste. Watery finish. Light to medium bodied, average carbo. Not the worst one, but still weak and boring.
