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.

Grainy flavour. Bitter aftertaste, with a light taste. Not a bad beer, better than I expected.

IslandHaole (1229) - Misawa, JAPAN - APR 28, 2005
Bottle-Typical Asian Lager look, clear light/medium Gold. White head. Scent of wet cardboard, some sweetness. Vegetal, sweet, papery. Medium body, a lower end of the scale brew, even by Asian standards.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2006
Bottle: Very pale yellow with a dinkus white head. Although not listed in the ingredients, I picked of a whiff of corn syrup sweetness in the faint aroma. Mayhaps a touch of floral hops. Not in the taste, though. It was more reminiscent of the aroma belched out from the Argo plant outside of the city (Chicago), corn byproducts, a hit of starch. It finishes on a watery, sweet note with a dash of metallica.

BrideOfFrankenkitty (44) - Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2006 Got no aromas from this pale yellow brew with filmy oil slick of a head. Its flavor was soapy with lemon. It wants to be bitter, but cant quite make it there.

asedzie (807) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 26, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2006 600 ml. bottle. Feel like I should rate the local brew. This is actually the variety I prefer from Taiwan Tobacco and Liquor (TTL), I avoid the "Gold Label" Taiwan Beer, as it is a piss poor beer and is only marketed to compete for the younger market with foreign brands like Heineken. Taiwan Beer pours yellow with lasting foam head. Flavor is extremely heavy corn, blandness with a background of rotting vegetables. Some relatively pleasant bitterness and generic hop flavor along with a slight taste of alcohol. Aftertaste is more rotting vegetables and some lingering bitterness. I actually notice a lot less sweetness than other kinds of Taiwan Beer (i.e. Gold Medal Taiwan Beer), and perhaps that is why I actually consider it drinkable. Very carbonated. Best if consumed very cold, in large quantities in a park in Taiwan on uneventful night. Oh yeah, be aware that this beer has a tendency to produce awful hangovers.

500ml green bottle at Kaohsiung restaurant. Clear light gold color, slight hop bitterness character, dry/grainy flavor. Overall, weak flavors.

Can. Clear yellow. Minimal head. Minimal taste. Your standard industrial lager in an advertising free can.

Definitely not the worst cheap lager Ive had but certainly not the best either. Pretty forgettable all around. Easy to drink and refreshing I guess.

(bottle - 330 ml) Clear gold. No head. Grass and corn aroma, seems to be a theme with the imports weve been having lately. Flavor isnt much. Grass, dead hops and stale corn.
