Lubiere (13548) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2010
A pale straw lager with a thick lacing white head. A rather chalky corn adjunct aroma, with light boiled vegetables. In mouth, an unpleasant chalky lager with loads of solvent notes, off flavours, some metallic hops, not very good. Bought at Bishops Cellar, Oct. 2009.

gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2010
Very standard pale ale. Lots of taste of corn and not much else. Very comparable to other American pales like rolling rock. *I see it is made by heineken which makes sense because this is what i thought it tasted like but was trying to relate it to American Pales...is heineken considered american these days?

fidelis83 (2359) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 6, 2010
Pours pale gold with a 1 finger creamy white head that has good retention. Aroma is corn, grass, toasted cereal grain, skunk and some sweet straw. Flavor is very watery... an overtone of mineral water and metal over the whole thing with some corn, cereal grain, grass and skunk coming and going as they please. Palate is light bodied with an alkaline dryness throughout and a light carbonation. Not the worst pale lager in the world, but definitely not worth it.

I knew what this piss was gonna taste like before I even opened the bottle. Corn, malt and stank. Just plain awful.
