Nutty. A distinct pale lager, but still not good at all. Very, very nutty. Maybe it comes from the rice, but it is a peanut butter aftertaste, but not in a good way and that is mixed with metallic flavors.

Thin. Little in the way of smell. Kind of sweet, I think. My negative opinion ould have something to do with the fact that I tried to bottom-open the can and it blew up all over me.

Bottled. Aroma is grassy and malty. Taste is sweety and malty. Simple pale lager. A bit watery

Delirium (663) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2007 Can. Pours pale-lager yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma is actually somewhat interesting, with a lot of unusual graininess that I assume is from the rice, some fruity apple notes, and a bit of hops. Flavor isnt quite as interesting, and somewhat marred by an off taste, but this is still interesting for a pale lager, with more of a rice-grain character than most Asian rice lagers. Mind you this isnt a great beer by normal standards, but its good for the style and region---at least it tastes like *something*, even if that something is more cider than beer. Much better than expected, anyway.

EKGoldings (659) - Radford, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 15, 2008 An overcarbonated, nondescript beer in the vein of the $1.99 6-pak beers available in the US. Heavy on adjunct, light on hops, as others point out, only drinkable when ice cold. In bottles when Im eating hot food Ive begun ti like this one.

Engelsmann (651) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2005
Bottled. Pours a clear golden, with a white head. Aroma is malty and hoppy. Staste is sweet, with just a tad hoppy bitterness. A rather bland beer.

envane (570) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2004 20 oz bottle which doesn't have the rad 60s euro stylin' lable artwork that the cans have. Otherwise, ok lager. Adjuncty but clean, maybe a few hops

This beer wasn’t as bad as many asian lagers I have had. It was at least drinkable, and was a nice chance from other similar beers that leave my mouth feeling a little scuzzy.

One look at the can and I was in love. The can design gives this beer its character, nothing comes from the taste. Taste is your usual cheap, thin beer. Id like to decorate my apartment in the same style as the can though...
