12oz bottle. Pours an effervescent clear pale amber with a solid but fleeting head. Aroma is sweet and earthy, with aromas of hops, yeast, straw, and a twinge of malt. Taste is light and crisp, with a slight hoppy-yeasty flavor quickly overpowered by a sour and unpleasant rubbery aftertaste somewhat muted by further drinking. Probably a tolerable companion to spicy food, but there are much better lagers to be had for session drinking.

Not the worst macro in Japan - it does has some taste, but you wouldnt drink it more than once.

I didn't think this was too bad. I looked at the date at the bottom of the can and it was brewed in August 02 (last year) inspite of that, and to my surpriise that it is an Anheirser Bush product, it was actually an OK beer. I'd certainly drink it again as a nice thirst quencher on a hot day. The 24 oz can I had poured with ample carbonation. Light straw yellow which looked weaker than it tasted. Nice head at first which quickly dissapaited with not much lacing. I hate to admit this about any AB product, but I'd definitely drink this again.

I wanted to like this one. It was malty but tasted overdone to me. I found it unspectacular and would not buy again.

Childrens beer, nothing to remark upon just plane-jane light beer. Some bitterness, sweetness and dryness. Meh.

ATOmemphis (200) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - MAR 16, 2006
Cool ass logo, relatively lame beer. Sweetish smell (hardly there) came from this golden headless beer. Very little carbonation. screw on caps are bad omens usually. The taste has a light (i mean i only imagined it after swallowing) taste of honey. Really pretty bland. Inoffensive is a good word, because it wasnt bad. then again, neat-o logo, half deer, half dragon thing.

Golden yellow color with a very faint white head. Barely any noticeable smell and tastes much like drinking Bud.

On tap. Dark clear Amber color, small white head with no lacing. Unmemorable taste.
