Golden colour. Head is white and fluffy with good lacing. Aroma is grainy with a light touch of honey and glue. Dry, grainy flavour followed by a somewhat harsh bitterness. A standard Euro-lager.
A notch above Heineken, which isn’t saying a whole lot...no flavor or aftertaste instead of no flavor and bad aftertaste. grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 7, 2003
Sweet, lightly malty, and weak. Huge pile of billowy white head on top of straw liquid. Malt flavors were quite decent but the hops were nowhere to be found. Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - MAR 27, 2003
Golden colour, clean appereance, good bubbly head, even if not really persistent. The flavour is quite malty and very watery. Not enough hoppy to be considered a decent pilsener. hopshead (24) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2003
Commercially speaking, not in the same league as a Heineken, or a Becks. Monetarilly speaking, a cheap alternative. Pretty good hoppy taste for a small price. If your short of cash, this one will do in a pinch.

This one pours a clear, typically golden yellow lager color with a small, bubbly white head. The head dissipates and the beer has a big skunk aroma at first, but the skunkiness recedes revealing some mild hop floral notes and a bit of malty sweetness. It has a light body with moderate carbonation. The flavor is slightly hoppy up front, but everything is lost in the bland, watery finish. It has some slightly sweet corn notes against the traditional malt notes. Mediocre at best. hershiser2 (3242) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 29, 2004
Paid 99 cents for a 12-oz single. Green bottle, some sort of undecypherable freshness code on back.
Yellow. No head, even with a hard pour.
Very Heiniken smelling- grassiness, slight skunk, nothing nice.
Taste isn't bad- but it's not very good. Tastes like a combination of an American macro and Heiniken... a little grassy, nothing much else.
I wouldn't recommend this beer to anyone. For 99 cents, it was worth it, I suppose, for trial purposes. TBone (17532) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2004

Typical lager outfit: yellow golden with foamy white head. Grassy aroma. Plain and simple with grassy hops and malty backbone.
Bottle: Skunky malt aroma. Pours a pale yellow without much of a head. Sweet up front. Finishes lightly sweet, lightly bitter, and lightly skunked. Just a light flavored beer all the way around.
