Bottle drank at the Trump Hotel in Las Vegas. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. The aroma is a very fruity malt. The taste was a smooth fruit filled malt body with a good mouthfeel. A cool bottle too. Drinkable.

Brought back from Peru from my friend: pours a clear watery yellow colour, small amount of carbonation, and heavy on the malts. dry mouthfeel, very full, but not a lot of flavor. it was fun to try it anyway, thanks alyssa:)

spikester (606) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUL 18, 2008
Deep gold with a modest white head. Good amount of lacings for such a minimal head. Aroma is sweet malts. Nice flavor for a pale lager. Malty not too sweet with some lingering hop bitterness. Crisp, clean, refreshing warm weather beer. Better than average for the style.

Tasting at Three Cellars Milwaukee. Clear and refreashing. Slight nuttyness with the malt. A very enjoyable Pale Lager.

esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Golden yellow. Aroma of grassy hops, corn and some sweet malt. Taste is more of the same wrapped up in an astringent body. Better than corona, but what isn’t?

12oz bottle served in a lager glass. Pours sparkling gold with almost no head. Smells of wet husky grains and green apple. Sweet grainy flavor with a touch or caramel. Not great, but it went alright with my burrito.

Had in Peru on vacation. This was my favorite of the very small selection I had to choose from. It was a darker gold color than Pilsen and Cristal with a stronger malt flavor.
