Gold colour with off white head. Grainy aroma, wet bar towel aroma. Grainy flavour with a thickish palate. Interesting flavour. JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2008
Bottle. Medium-gold. Vague aroma of sugar water, faint whiff of grain… nothing much. Palate is surprisingly gritty, plus a welcome richness. Flavour features a good balance between malt and hop elements, and a nice woody finish. Better than expected and quite refreshing. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2008
Picked up at Maruhn Getränke in Darmstadt. Bottle - Pours a clear golden yellow color, with almost no head. Aromas of grass, corn, and a little skunk. Flavor has a mild hop taste, with grains and a crisp finish. MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2008
Bottle- Pale pale yellow with a frothy but short lived white cap. The nose here is a blast of corn with wet paper, some grains, a bit of hay. Weak. Tastes of sweet grains, corn, some pale malts...quite watery, thin, over carbonated. Not for me. GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2008
Bottle from the LCBO. Clear light golden with a small white head that disappears lickety-split. Mild aroma of sweet malt (hint of icing sugar), faint grassy hops, a bit of sweet corn. Quite heavily carbonated at first, but about halfway through, it starts to flatten and gets a bit sticky. Flavour starts quite sweet with very obvious influence from the adjuncts, but the finish is actually somewhat decent, with a nice herbal/grassy hoppiness. Too sweet to be the refreshing lager it intends to be, but it could be much worse.

Decants clear gold into the glass with a smallish rocky white cap that dissipates fast. poor lacing. Fizzy carbonation.
Aroma is lightly grainy with s dextrose sweetness, light grassy hopping.
Weak mouth feel thin body, feeble malting with adjunct sweetness, slightly drying in the finish as some hops and the rice dry the taste out.
Weak, sweet, slighty vegetal and thin...not even good to slam on a hot say because of the excessive glucose...crappy adjunct beer. JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2008 330mL bottle from the LCBO, who else. Pours a pale gold with a large white, frothy head. Aroma is, meh, corn, or for needless differentiation sake, ’maize’, barley, lemon, leafy hops, everything in insanely little quantities and qualities. Flavour is basically what you would expect, corny, grassy skunk that isn’t completely aweful but you’ve had 460596954645 times now, but, OH, the finish, how bizarre. Real hops? Like, really, serious hops? Huh? Wow. Impressive, I guess. "World’s most celebrated lager", hmm, interesting claim. I may have to look into this............ robinvboyer (4750) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 11, 2008
thin grassy, grainy, and well, not very good. Flavor leaves an odd sweet corniness in my mouth, Yuck. bottle says extra smooth, i’m thinking more along the lines of extra shitty. I can’t seem to find a reason to finish my glass. wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - OCT 9, 2008
Celebrated all over the world?? Are you kidding me, man, that is depressing. The aroma, is thin and grassy. The flavour is equally as thin, with hay, grass, and sour industrial finish. This beer has some mighty weak game, but its atleast drinkable. KneeDeep (7) - sdfsd, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2008 does not count
An Indian beer that accompanies a chicken vindaloo or phaal particularlty well. Normally I don’t care what drink to enjoy my curry with as long as I have raging dysentry and rectal bleeding the following morning. It is particularly satisfying to shit out an Indian curry whilst pissing out an Indian beer although the reverse can often apply.
