Real a dissapointment. Had heard rumours about some hoppiness, but it was a just watery beer to my vietnamese nem (springrolls). turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2006
Pale yellow lager. Had it cold with a 10-course chinese dinner for which it fitted perfectly, which explains why I’ve upped the Overall score a bit :) jonno (2756) - JAPAN - DEC 26, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2007 Definitely a bit of a surprise with its crisp tart taste and refreshing finish TrojanMan (43) - USA - DEC 11, 2006
Tastes like a US macro at a premium price. If you close your eyes you’ll think its a Bud. taunusmies (357) - FINLAND - DEC 8, 2006
Looks clear and pale golden in the glass. Light and a bit sparkling mouthfeel. A quite common lager. OK, but not a unforgettable one.

This offering had no head or lacing. Color was the palest of yellow. Aroma was that of a rice lager. Mouthfeel was light to medium and fizzy. Slightly resinous palate. Crisp, light taste, quite nice for a lager actually. I’d revisit this one; especially if I were out to retire some replicants... Panzerfaust (848) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - DEC 5, 2006

Pours a clear light golden color. Head is big white and frothy but dissolves fast. It leaves a tiny ring.
Aroma is lightly hoppy with german lager hops giving herbal and soft citrusy notes. Decent malty presence showing hints of cereal and fruits. Wait...now a little warmer I get fruits like banana...Belgian yeast? weird and unexpected.
Flavor is surprisingly decent. Soft and fruity. Sweet without bitter counterbalance. Touches of vanilla, banana and fresh herbs. I expected much worse. This doesn’t taste like a cheap swill lager at all.
Light body, watery texture. Low carbonation. Finish is short. Lagerish veggie aftertaste. Much better than I thought and went well with the chinese food (Chap Suey and Chaufan Rice)
Pretty boring beer. Taste is nothing special. Metallic palate in the mouth. Bit watery, won’t drink this again in Holland. Maybe if I’m in China and there isn’t anything else. GuilTTy (733) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2006
Clear light golden pour under a very thin white head an no lacing. Modest citus notes in an otherwise weak aroma. Standard lager flavor profile with little to distinguish itself from other mass produced brews save for a tad more hops than most. Watery texture and no finish to speak of. If you’re looking for a mostly tasteless lager for your Chinese take out, this is a better choice than any of the American macros, but its still a weak beer.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2006 The beer had a gold color and a small white head. Decent carbonation. Good clean crisp, but lacking in the taste department
