Had from the bottle that was purchased in Monterrey, Mexico. It pours a clear yellow with a nice fluffy head. It smells of corn and malt with a slight hint of hops. It is smooth but earthy and malty and not generally pleasing. I imagine on a hot day it would be OK.

The bottle I got from the store was much cooler than the one pictured on the right. The aroma is standard for the type: a mix of malts, hops, grass, adjuncts. Common straw color with white head, strong carbonation. Flavor is corn, sweet malts, salt, cereal, light hops. The finish has a light hoppiness which is reasonably ok. Somewhat salty throughout. (Must be the water they use). In a disparaged beer category, this one is not bad for the type.

oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2008
Picked up at Maruhn Getränke in Darmstadt. Pours a medium golden yellow color. Aromas of hops, grains, and a touch of something fruity. Flavor has a nice hop action going for it, with a cheerios like taste.

Fukito (1064) - Santiago, CHILE - OCT 16, 2008
Can, october 08. Clear, golden color with fizzy carbonatation and a small, disappearing white head. Flavor is not that ba for a pale lager. Chilled, but with an almost perceptible malt backbone and decent bittersweetness. A bit of skunk and a salty finish. Aroma is a bit of skunk and the faintest touch of herbal hopiness. Palate is a little bit fuller than most pale lagers, firm too. Almost a bit of flavor while remaining refreshing. King among leppers.

I just returned from Peru and had a number of these on my trip. It doesn’t have a lot of flavor or body, but is easy enough to drink. It is rather booring to drunk, but other than that I have no real complaints.

ChainGangGuy (4941) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 19, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, light gold body with six to seven lazy, disinterested bubbles floating around. Smell: Pale malts with some light cereal notes. Taste: Palt maltiness, a touch cereal, but not overly sweet. Not much in the way of hop character. More of the same till the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A good beer? Heavens, no! It’s weak and watery. But at least there are no foul or offensive flavors running loose in here. I guess that’s a fair trade.

2.1
Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Dankole. Pours a clear gold with a huge 4 finger white head and decent lacing. Nose is light grassy hops and sweet corn. Taste is malt, grain and honey with a minimal bitter hops finish. Light-to-medium mouth feel. Drinkable.
