40oz (181) - Newport Beach, California, USA - OCT 22, 2001
Slight hop and malt aroma. Medium modied, crisp, mildly bitter with solvent like chemical taste that lingers in mouth after swollowing. At 99 cents for a 22oz bottle, it gets the job done.

I like the fact that this is honoured worldwide and I am the 29th person to rate this. I had it in Taipei which is only to say that the contents of the can were fresher than most. Nothing more to be said that itiis a lager that has rice as an adjunct, meaning more alcohol with less body and flavour.

So I got the can at Beers of the World. I hope it is a bottle conditioned can because I got a ton of floaties in here. The beer pours a murky golden with the floaties and a thin white head. Sweet yeasty nose of candi sugar and pears. The initial sensation is water, but there is a lot of funky sweetness in it. Spoiled orange juice, white sugar, copper penny and aluminum can. It does have an almost Belgian sweetness to it, but it just tastes clumsy.

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.

FatPhil (14896) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 10, 2008
350ml can - thanks to a friendly nun!
Pale gold, large but brief fizzy head. Orangy or lemony sharp fruity aroma, a touch of whole maize. Slightly fizzy palate, a little watery. Very papery taste, dry, ever so brief spicy ginger hint, some other dodgy tanginess, and tingly hop extract sensation for a finish. Improves as it flattens and warms, becomes more malty. Better than many a macro lager.

Not that good. Only ever drink it if the 7-11 or family mart is out of the gold medal brew. The aftertaste verges on foul without completely ever crossing the line.
