01.11.05 Cool 22oz can. Can cracks with a woosh and a waft of stink. Ugh. Looks nice for a pale yellow lager. Not so fizzy and has an ample head that laces in sheets on the glass. Aroma is lightly malty and dusty(?). Flavor is sweet up front, wet, metallic finish; mild all around. Not good - I was hoping for better for some reason and now I have to taste the Reserve.

Deuce-Deuce can. Poured kind of haggard yellow. Medium lasting head that laced down. Smelled like beer...I suppose. Tasted...not so good. Really kind of weird strong alcohol taste despite not being strong at all. Overall not very good..

Tessic (1111) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2005
This one poured a nice yellow with a really nice white head. Although the scent of it smelled like the can...Metallic! Very boring as far as the scents went, typical white bread beer smell. First taste was very smooth with minimal carbonation. Although watery. Finish was typical and the palate was slightly bitter. Not too bad but I probably wont be bothered with another.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2007 As expected this one has a rice malt flavor with light hops that go well with oriental foods. Just a little too thin. The one I had did not seem as weak as some of the others listed here but still way too thin to say it had any character.

Clear yellow beer with small white head. Malty aroma with notes of hops. The flavour is dominated by hops. Nice with japanese food.

Thin, light yellow, ricey lager, gentle (if any) hops. Best enjoyed with sushi, as the crispy flavorlessness is not designed to be consumed on its own. Enjoyed chilled in the 22 oz bomber can at Fuji-Ya in Minneapolis.

In a bottle from a "Lagers of Europe" Christmas Present. Mine was 4.7% (but cant find one of that strenght listed so ll go for this one). Pale golden yellow colour. Very fizzy, very bland. Not very good beer :(

Bog standard look ans smell: light amber / gold with larger / faint malty notes on the nose. Veyr high fizz in the mouth, and as per usual with these mainstream guys the refreshing zest makes it very tough to pick any clear flavour characters. Actually bugger all happening flavour wise although it does quench the thirst quite well. Makes Asahi look very good.

Bottle. This is not the first time that my bottle was somewhat different from the one in the photo. Mine says Premium Beer, where the photo says Draft Beer But this is the closest one so I will go with it. Bland, pale yellow, no head to speak of. When I studied the label carefully, I noticed this was actually brewed in Canada. In any case this is not as good as Bud, and that is saying a lot (in the sense of not saying much). Dont bother. Tap water is better.

Not a very good beer. I remember this one having like no taste or carbonation. It goes down easy, but that is all you can really say about it. Not very impressive.
