Pours golden in color. Smells a little malty. Tastes like watered down corn. Pretty sweet too. Not a whole lot to say about this beer. I like the sweetness, which separates it from US macros, but still not much here.

Light gold in colour with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet and slightly hoppy. Taste is sweet, with a mild bitterness. Ordinary beer.

Nasty stuff... golden in colour with little aroma. Lots of canned corn flavor, along with a disgusting sweetness. Yuck! This is one to avoid!

Not too bad, but not too great either. A drinkable Asian lager better than many of the THai lagers. A little too weak flavoured though.

Brought back by a friend from the Philippines along with 3 others from the "area". Pours yellow with a medium fizzy white head. Aroma is slightly sweetened corn syrup with a splash of hay. Taste is very BMC like to me. Sort of crisp but a very average pale lager, really. Definitely not a pilsener at all. Body is slightly overcarbonated and is thin. However, it is sort of refreshing and not too bad tasting. Finish is sweet with a hint of metal. This is even canned. That does not bode well considering the others he brought back were canned. Ugh.

This also pours yellow with a tall white head. This head seems foamier that the Light version. Aroma is corn, skunky hops and cardboard. Taste is much like the Light version only sweeter and thicker. Typical corn syrupy taste. Finish is sweet also. Again, this isn't bad especially cold on a warm day, it’s just not recommended when they are other cheaper equally as bad beers to buy.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2004
Bottle. Straw body capped with a thick foamy 3 finger head. Nose is soft and malty. Flavors that come out are vinegar, straw, and water. Very mild. Not bad, but probably would be better with food.

RedEft (155) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - AUG 3, 2004
Classic golden color with a decent white head. Fizzy and grassy, decent pale lager taste. Nothing special.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2004
Grassy, malt aroma, pale yellow, pours a large white head, some nice lace too. Corn, adjuncts taste, light bodied, tiny bitterness, ordinary.

Hoppy smell,light golden. Bitter but just. Grassy after taste. May be better ice cold?

GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2004
Gold colour with a moderate fluffy white head. Sweet, grassy aroma. Flavour of sweet malt and a hint of canned corn. Negligible hop profile. Another average international lager.

heemer77 (5355) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 9, 2004
Very large, foamy white head. The body is very light gold with lots of bubbles. The aroma is thin. Hints of urine and a little must. The taste is like flour with a little bit of lime. This is another lame lager.
