Clear, light yellow color. Weak malty aroma and flavor. Only saving grace might be cool it'sbottle.

The metallic tinge was for me a turn off. It looks and smells good (it smells of dough or yeast), but the flavour and palate are lacking - causing me not to like it.

Looks like Heineken, tastes like Heineken. A very smooth lager, but little to enjoy.

Way too adjuncty. Is there any actual malted barley in this stuff? An excessive sweetness makes it taste like it isn't quite done. Between the weak body, corny flavor, sweetness and lack of discernable hops flavor, this is like some kind of 'training beer' appropriate for little girls and Yankees fans.

The best, hands down. Extra points for looking like a cheap ass beer in that weird bottle. Wish it didn't cost so much so I could drink it more often.

Thanks to my Jamaican co-worker for this one. Much better than the typical American standard but still lacks any character. Would be good on a hot summer day for quenching your thirst. Extra points for the unusual bottle.

Just an ordinary (and boring as hell!) international lager!! Weak malty aroma and flavor and thats about it... A little bitter/dry finish!

12 oz. bottle: totally transparent light gold. . . a winey malt aroma that doesn't make the head turn. There is a good floral hop presence, which may be why I am enjoying it. . . nothing exciting, but intersting when macros are the only other alternative.

Standard lager with no outstanding qualities. Drinkable none the less if there's nothing decent to choose!

hershiser2 (3667) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2004
EXTREMELY average. Sparkly golden, with a decent head. Has a decent beer smell, nothing extraordinary by any means. Tastes like a lager, but with a bit of florality to it. Average mouthfeel and drinkability. For an import, which costs more than domestics most bars have, it's not worth it.
