Bootle. Pours pale yellow with a medium foam subsiding average slow to a ring. Scent is pale lager and light notes of apple. Finish is like water. Good.

Blonde claire limpide, une lager quelconque comme on en voit partout, légères notes de malts et légère douceur, elle a le mérite de ne pas être désagréable. Bouteille 33cl bu au restaurant El Chalan, Paris, France, le 22/12/2016.

Bottle shared by BuckeyeBoy Light sweet maltiness..very litle hop bitterness. Pale and bland. Slick and not as dry and crisp as its pale lager brethren this evening

stevoj (5043) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Buckeyeboy. True to the South American style, tons of corn sweetness, sticky feel, pale golden body with small foamy head. Not horrible, just kind of bland, and a bit on the sweet side.

BuckeyeBoy (7680) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 14, 2016
Bottle pours out a pale straw topped with a white head. Nose is grain corn and grass. Taste is more of the grain and corn.

Homer321 (5071) - Melboring, Florida, USA - OCT 6, 2016
Bottle from Nassau on a cruise. Nose is malty sweet. Sort of honey, light bread. Soft floral hop notes. Perfectly clear with minimal white head. Taste is lightly sweet up from with a slight carbonic bite. Pretty malty and bland sweetness but otherwise non offensives.

Maits (479) - ESTONIA - SEP 4, 2016
Light golden lager with small white head. Aroma is little bit bready. Taste is metallic, watery. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Not much to cheer about it, but drinkable.

biir (1361) - Berlin, - AUG 24, 2016
Bottle - I dont know what happened but I liked it. Bready, doughy, a bit sweet. A drinkable Pale Lager.

Splitenz (370) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2016
Typical beer from a large brewer in a hot country. There’s very little taste to speak of, this is a beer you drink to drink something cold in a bar that offers little else, or the local water would actually kill you. Pretty bottle and hey, I’ve had a beer from Peru!

wombat23 (1419) - Texas, USA - JUL 20, 2016
11.2 oz. bottle. Pale yellow with an initially aggressive fizzy white head. Carbonation quickly dies out. Corn, metallic notes, watery finish.
