"The beer appears golden in colour with a solid amount of foam. Standard lager taste that dies out seconds after entering the mouth. No aftertaste whatsoever. Tastes dangerously like water." - beersoftheworldproject.wordpress.com

330ml bottle Pale gold with slight head. Sweet, bland with a vague bitterness in there somewhere. Oy hum.....

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2017 330mL bottle into glass at Niños Lamesita, Adelaide. In a funky bottle and it pours very clear, pale yellow and creates a nice head that doesn't last very long. It has quite a 'beery' aroma and a fairly inoffensive flavor. Not as dull as cheap American or Australian lagers but not a high quality beer. It's fun to drink with Filipino food but once you've tried it, there's no need to get it again.

Bottle from Asia shop in Frankfurt. Standard Lager, pretty mediocre, really nothing special. Drinkable, but I don’t see a point in importing it.

TedE (1535) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 20, 2017
330ml bottle into pint glass. Amber beer with frothy white head. Low carbonation. Sweet plasticine nose, some grain. Light taste of toasted grain. Finish is long with a little grain. Drinkable.

All the panache, flavor and presence of wilted iceberg lettuce on a hot day. A cold swallow refreshes briefly but is then followed by a slightly foul aftertaste. I will never buy this beer again.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2017 One of many, but first time I've rated this. On tap at B.A.T.S., Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta on 19-Sep-2017. Clear golden amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet crystal malt and grain. Light to medium body and carbonation. Taste of sweet malt, grain, funk and citrus. Lightly hopped and bittersweet.

KeefOz (1951) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - SEP 15, 2017
BB 07 04 18. Poured a perfect crystal clear amber with a one-finger white foamy head that diminished quickly and laced poorly. Aroma sweet with malt and grain and a hint of metal; no obvious hops. Taste of sweet grainy malt with a bit of tartness; no real hops. Light body with a very thin mouthfeel. Crisp and slightly dry with quite a sweet finish that lingers a bit. Another pale lager.

Juks (1199) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 10, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours clear golden, bubbly white head, doesn’t stay. Weak corny, lagery aroma, grainy. Taste of wet paper, grain, butter. Greasy finish. Light bodied, average carbo. Not the worst one, but still..
