Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 26, 2009
Pours pale yellow with a thin white head. Smells of crisp pilsner malt and some stray hops. Tastes watery but refreshing. Good for what it is.

330ml bottle. Middle of the road pale lager. Clear and straw in colour with a white head and good carbonation. Aroma of hops - not too bad. Didnt realise this brew was still around.

The last time I drank this was in 1974 it was cheap but everybody liked it,a lot sweeter than xxxx bitter,aroma was is sugary,malty.Flavour well sweet,a bit of a pick up taste,there was another one,in a different bottle not as good.This one sugary,malt,slight tang at the end and sweet finish,bitter was not high.Yes it was a fairly well accepted drink,quenched the thirst.Medium head to start back to lace,fair carbonation,light gold colour.

StevieT (1884) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2014
From a bottle. Aroma is not that flash, pours a clear pale yellow with almost no head. Tastes quite bland, is smooth though, I doubt Ill drink it again.

floydian1 (1414) - FNQ, Australia, - DEC 16, 2009
330ml bottle (4.5% ABV). It is a bland run-of-the mill tropical lager and I wasnt expecting it to be anything else. Pours clear straw yellow with a negligible white head. Aroma of very sweet honey lager malts and little else. Tastes syrupy sweet with a medium-bodied fizzy palate. No hop presence to speak of. May be just about passable if accompanied by spicy Asian foods.

Butelka, dzięki Sylvia.Kolor jasnosłomkowy, piana znika bardzo szybko. Aromat trawy, lekko słodowe.Smak lekko słodko-gorzki. Piwo tylko z nazwy raczej woda ze słodem, słabe.
