Bottle. This is pretty much a perfect storm of a bad beer. There are no redeeming aspects. It is terrible in every way.

Hazy golden colour, thin head. Aroma is lightly appley over a pale malt base. Flavour is weird with some light chemically flavour and also with a distinct apple flavour that isn’t so great. Light pale malt, but it’s really poor. Meh.

Pretty simple, easy to drink beer especially cold. Nothing to make you scratch your head and look for flavors, because this is about as simple as they come. Subtle malt notes, a touch skunky...something else odd....kinda chemical like in chlorine or something. Tasted rather corn-like with a mildewy grass-clippings-sitting-in-a-bag-too-long kinda flavor. Hard to finish this one.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2008
Bottle, Imlee restaurant. Cheesy Kama Sutra label. Ultra pale with hardly any head. Solvent-silly aroma. Smells like jewelery cleaner. Thin palate. Sweet flavors. Tastes a little like fermented coconut water housed in an old gasoline container. Gross!

I only wish I knew what was wrong with this beer. Weird phenols, rotting fruits...totally funky. Old?? Didnt taste it. Skunked? Probably, but there was more. Analyzing this is a job for the brewing scientist, not me.

Bottle. Not a ton of aroma. Slightly hazy yellow with nothing for a head. The palate isnt bad, crisp and served cold. The flavor was off, with kind of a sour taste. Also corny. This isnt a tasteless lager, its a bad tasting one. I did buy this on sale for <$1 so maybe it wasnt fresh.

blipp (9007) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 23, 2008
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is very light and strange. Like a sourish malt. Thin body, horrible taste. I took three sips and dumped the rest.

bhensonb (14978) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 11, 2008
650 ml bottle at wine frig temperature. Definite grassy aroma. Pale lemon gold color with a fizzy white head that went away. Slightly biting carbonation with a near medium body. The flavor is lightly sweet and balanced with hop bitter. Its got enough bitter to head towards some pilsners, but there is a floral/fruit hop character beyond grass. the finish is mildly sweet, but remains balanced. Like other Yuksom brews it is worth drinking and better than many pale lagers.

355ml bottle I had with dinner at an Indian restauraunt. pours pale golden with little head, had an aroma almost like wine, the flavor was sweet, lightly malty with some hops, and a strange fruit flavor that i cant quite make out.

hopdog (12208) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2007
640ml bottle. Poured a medium and clear golden color with a small sized white head. Aromas of corn, grains, grass and sweet malts. Tastes of grass, corn and had a honey sweetness to it. Thinner body. Not overly offensive, but why...
