Aroma as expected - lager. Bottle and drink looks excellent for summer and cafe. Taste is fresh. A little hop, and a little sweetness. Ends sweet. Palate is fresh and watery. Great for summer and cafe. Purchased at IDAs harbour cafe.

From a bottle found at the Costa Rican version of Wal-Mart. OK. Seriously green skunked nose, light-struck from an insufficiently dark green bottle. And a sneaking suspicion that that skunkiness will supply most of this beer’s character. Smells like a Corona. Bit of sweet corn and some cereals underneath. Mild bitterness though, and an actual malty center. Maybe a touch flat but that’s OK. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Better than expected and possibly halfway decet when fresh.

Very clear amber watery pour. Taste is water and malt. Nose is malt with little hint of caramel.

33 cl bottle. Pale gold. White head. Sweet, lightly malty aroma. Light body. Sweet malt flavour w/ very little bitterness.

Clear yellow pour tiny white head. Typical earthy grassy scent. Taste is bready, little hop and dry finish. Typical for the style.

Draught at 28 Erbe, Genova. Golden with thin white head. Faint nose of malt and citrus. Flavour is malt and citrusy hops. Rather one dimensional all round but it does taste pretty clean. Refreshing if nothing else.

Bottle from Italy. Pours a very bright pale yellow color, with a frothy white head, that actually partially sticks around. Aroma is of grains, slight amount of grassy and citrussy hops, but overall fairly weak. Flavour is grainy with some grassy and citrussy notes. I get a slightly foral notes aswell, but it is very faint. Body is light and watery. Overall a refreshing beer, that would be good for quenching your thirst on a hot summers day. Not anything special, but average.

fidelis83 (2535) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 6, 2010
Pours a slightly amber pale gold with a fluffy, 1 finger, white head that has good retention and leaves some lacing. Aroma is sweet corn, sweet cereal grain, and the dusty aroma of corn being harvested. Flavor is lightly grassy, somewhat floral and corny with a grassy and mineral finish. Palate is light bodied and dry with a light carbonation. Realy not very good, the fruity notes absolutely do not fit well.

BillKismet (4165) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 4, 2010
Pale, sickly blond color with very foamy, etiolated head. Crisp Euro-hop (Saaz?) aroma with a light graininess translates into a similarly crisp hop and mild grain body. Pretty clean and not bad for the style. Quenching and vacuous.

Upon opening an obvious skunk character bursts out of my pint glass. Appears clear and filtered, with a short-lasting thin head and minor lacing. Upon closer inspection, the green bottle obviously did not help prevent any skunking, and who knows how long this particular specimen had been waiting in the fridge, just waiting for its latest victim. Getting past the skunky aroma, slight DMS; a definite cooked corn flavor perhaps evidence of high adjunct brewing. Body is very light, thin, crisp finish....a bit tart. Oh, if Europe had a Hamm’s...this would be it!
