Light retention and no lacing. Smells of grass, sweet biscuit and lemon. Tastes of lemon grass and malty grain. Yeasty aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Better than most of EU lager beers. Nice body, nice look, very good taste and aroma, even palate is not so bad as at most of lager beers. Enjoyable beer, it is very fine with the food, because is somehow neutral but tasty.

500ml bottle. Pours light golden amber with a small white head. Aroma is sweet malt, touch of caramel, hay, honey and some lemon. Carbonation rushing up glass. Very smooth. Sweet to taste, malty, leading into a light lemony bitterness and finishing with a nice straw, honey sweetness. I rather like this, for a lager it’s well above the average muck.

Unappealing cloudy light golden pour, but does have a head. Aroma is yeasty, some fruit, sweet. No real flavor, but does have a slightly bitter finish. Might actually be worse than BMC. Couldn’t take a third taste.

22 oz. bottle shared with friends. Pours very pale yellow with fairly large white head. Aroma of pils and rice. Taste is nice and crisp, goes down easy. Much tastier and better than BMC.

This beer has almost no flavor at all. It goes down easy, but seriously, it tastes like rotten water. Pour is piss yellow with a white head.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2007 Light yellow. Felt scratchy as I drank it. The little taste it had died quickly.

bgiamatei (317) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAR 16, 2008
Uma cerveja que agradou. Espuma branca de boa formação. Dourada. Cheiro de cereais, suavemente frutado. Sabor também suavemente frutado, levemente amarga. Densa. Bem maltada.
