JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Clear yellow, frothy fading head. Faint stale corny aroma. Stale, slightly hoppy paper taste. Could be worse.

tiggmtl (4545) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2004
Mild, sweet, clean and inoffensive in both aroma and flavour. Clear, golden coloured with decent white head that recedes to lasting cover. Light body is somewhat watery but has nice engaging carbonation without being overly gassy. Bottle.

Oakes (17093) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 12, 2004
Dark gold colour. Aroma is unclean - fruity, phenolic (medicinal). Body is light, flavour watery. But still its phenolic. Mercifully quick finish.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - DEC 2, 2004
Bottle pored yellow with no head a bit of malt in the aroma with a plain grassy flavor . Ok on a hot day when you want to drink a lot of beer ...but then so is keystone.. but not bad at all.

When fresh this is an excellent beer. However, in the Philippines this beer is normally stored improperly. Due to that, the flavor and aroma are drastically affected. The export version and the local version are totally different. My rating applies only to the bottled local beer sold in the Philippines.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 16, 2004
Pours a pale yellow with a smallish white head. Aromas of......uh......ummm...o.k. so not so much in the aroma department. Tastes of bubbles, water,......kinda beerish I guess. Not a top tener.

bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 10, 2004
Colour was good and the head wasnt bad with some touches of lacing also. Initial skunky aroma which disappeared quickly to a faint grainy aroma. Taste was fairly bland and uninspiring, a little metallic, light malt and not enough bite for me.

hopdog (12208) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 23, 2004
Poured a light yellow with a smaller white head. Not much to the aroma and taste. Kinda of skunky. Little sweet flavor. Pass

Eructoblaster (4135) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2004
Nice golden body topped with a thin bubbly head. Average malty aroma with various hints of herbs, hops and biscuit. Without being impressive, taste is well-balanced. Mouthfeel ends with a short hoppy finish. I was expecting another tasteless asian lager, but this one was very drinkable.
