Bottle in trade from Solidfunk, thanks for the country! Slightly hazy light golden color with a thin wisp of a white head. Light skunk, pilsner and a touch of floral earth and faint metal. Better than I expected really.

A pleasant aroma upon opening but after that its all down hill.A strange mouthfeel with a lingering dryness.It claims to have won gold medals but were? Reminds me of Heineken-yes its that poor.

Bottle. Nice golden colour with champagne-like bubbles. Very thin white head that dissipated almost immediately. Musty smell, like apples in the cellar. Tastes of fermented apples, with a sweet lingering after-taste. Very cider-like taste. Heavy carbonation gives quite a sharp bite; again, palate is very cider-like. Overall, the beer was quite a pleasant surprise. I expected a flavourless Asian lager, but got something with very unique character.

Salmoniform (1272) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Poured from bottle to glass. Golden hue with creamy white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is cereal, corn, straw. Mouthfeel is nice with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry with a slight sulphur finish. Overall this is a decent Pilsner type brew.

ALLOVATE (3048) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 20, 2015
My favourite beer in Taiwan as it ’s easy to drink, available everywhere including nestled in the fishmongers ice displays at night markets, and it’s dirt cheap. Produces up a clear, yellow gold with a silky white foam that holds. Slightly weedy and herbal, green tea nose. Soft, almost creamy mouthfeel. Watery and drawn for flavour. Soft leafiness to the back with a medial bitterness. Clean with not much going on. Dry, powdered grain midpalate. A turn your brain off and drink kind of beer. (64cL bottle & 33cL can)

From old tasting notes. Clear gold color. Foamy white head. Yeasty tart malt aroma. Rather sweetish grainy malt flavor. Lingering toasted malt midtaste. Very faint hop finish and aftertaste.m

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAY 22, 2004
Golden orange color witha small white head, some cloudiness...resembles a belgian white. Smells clean, light and fruity. Starts lemony with peach and soda water on palate. Not much else, finishes crisply. Tasty beer that far exceeds its metal can pedigree. Purchased in a 12 oz can at Beers of the World in Rochester, NY.

thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2011
Can. Clear yellow with a big white head. Malty aroma, hints of citrus. Bready flavours, some citrus. Not bad for an industrial lager.

The flavor of the grains comes through. It's pleasant. Slightly bitter aftertaste.
