Fatehunter's rating

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
Fatehunter (2517) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 30, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. Light straw color with a half inch of head that quickly disappeared to just covering the surface. Fairly fragrant for its style. Lots of honeysuckle... actually only honeysuckle, but still nice. The taste is hard to pin down. Smooth with a slight honey flavor midway through. The taste is "refreshing" without any bite. Light towards medium body with moderate carbonation. Crisp and clean. One of the top beers for its style. Smooth and easy drinking, plus it smells good.

mathieuc (3867) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2017
Pours a very clear shiny golden with no head to speak of and certainly no lacing. Lots of bubbles so surely it is highly carbonated. Nose is pretty tame, really, and pretty much corn exclusive. Taste has a slight acidic edge and is pretty corn-heavy as well. It is dry, though. Body is very light and carbonation pretty high. Watery... Just a weak macro "pilsner".

Again, tried it, done. Nothing much to a very common beer, below average quality.

I used to hate this beer before I really got into craft beer. Now that almost all I drink is craft beer, this is my go to light beer. Something u can drink a lot of and doesn’t taste like water like similar priced beer.

PilsnerDoctor32 (156) - madrid, SPAIN - MAR 25, 2017
Botella 35,5 cl. Color dorado clarito. Espuma? En seguida desaparece. Aroma,sabor... Pasada. Contiene 2 (dos) "E". Gases. A ver, cuando se pone en la calle + 40ºC y tomar esta maravilla quimica, cambiare mi opinion.

Acaro (116) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 21, 2017
Aroma: Subtle grass/cereal notes Appearance: Light golden color with clear liquid and a minimal white head. Taste: Light sweet notes behind a medium sourness. Palate: Light body with thin liquid and average carbonation. Subtle bitter finish. Overall: The black (and I think original) vesion is Negra Modelo and it is already soft, so a pale lager version was not surprise to be so bland.

Sven1973 (404) - GERMANY - MAR 18, 2017
Dose in einer Bar in Tampa. Sehr viel Kohlensäure, Aroma und Geschmack nach süßlichen Malz. Letztendlich aber trinkbar.

Go to beer on a hot sunny day! A posh Corona for sure but very much a fantastic session beer.

Mindwarp (271) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 6, 2017
Pours gold with a thin white head. Aroma is of malt and yes, grapes. Flavor is of malt and water. No aftertaste which isn’t surprising since there isn’t much taste anyway.

DocJitsu (1928) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2017
Pours a crystal clear golden with a very short white head. Corn and green grape on the nose. Full body and a crispness on the back of the tongue. Corn flavor with ample bitterness at the finish.
