Joined trade with tderoeck / obtained from Rubin77. Thanks to both! 330 ml. bottle sampled @ RBBWG VI (2017). Extremely pale golden. Nose is vegetables, chemical, industrial, faint vegetable stock. Taste is herbal, vegetabel, corn, mileder than int the nose, overall quite watery, approaching flavorless. Bland for its own good, there is much worse.

330ml bottle pours out almost like water. Nose is light grain and corn. Taste is light grain and that’s about all.

Can. Aroma horribly fruity and corny, hint of sharp alcohol. Not so bad in flavour - slightly minerally, otherwise completely watery. Drinkable.

Quite a surprising package. Nice simple lager with minimal bitterness. This is not a beer to sit and savour, this is simply a nice drink on a hot day to quench the thirst and refresh. No lingering finish - just a clean crisp lager finish. Definitely at its best when fresh in PNG. Appearance is just what you expect from a mass produced lager - yellow and minimal head - if you were expecting something else you didn’t read the label. But the flavour is nice with no chemical aftertaste - just simple lager beer done reasonably well. Safer than the water too.

From bottle in shaker. Pale golden with lively CO2. There’s a bit of European influence in this lager but it falls a bit short.
