22oz bottle - First, I have to admit that I did not drink this entire thing. It just didnt keep me interested enough to consume the whole bottle. But what I did have, wasnt horrible but reminded me of a pretty typical Euro strong lager. Very grainy, corny sweetness, smooth mouthfeel with no complexity and a clean finish...when cold. I imagine its pretty gnarly when warmed up, so why wait for something bad to happen when you know its going to happen? The one thing that was pretty bad about this beer...when I poured it into my glass....there was no head. Zero. Zip. Nada. There was carbonation on the palate, but in my glass? Looked like apple juice. Very weird.

A: The beer pours a clear golden orange color with a short lived white head. S: Definitely get some butter up front with a bit of grass, straw, and metal. Light malt character with plenty of corn and a bit of table sugar. Maybe a touch of honey and overcooked grain. T: Tastes very much like candy corn. Very sweet and sugary, a strong corn flavor as well and a slight buttery creaminess. Hints of straw and grass as well, with almost no bitterness. M: Light to medium in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Really a weird flavor. Certainly not all that good, but the candy corn flavor was sort of interesting.

This beer looked golden yellow and had a snow white head that vanished instantly. The smell of skunk hits you the second you open up the bottle, it also has a sweet malty sent, wow this stuff smells strong at least the skunk mostly went away after a few minuets. The brew not surprisingly has a bit of a skunky taste combined with lots of grass. The 7% alcohol is very noticeable in this beer, but I dont mind it, it gives the beer taste a slight edge. The after taste is very sweet and bready reminds me of apple turnovers. I got to say this was way better then I thought it would be, served ice cold this beer is drinkable but if you let it get warm the alc. taste get very harsh. Im probably rating this beer higher then I should due to the fact I just got back from rugby practice and any piss warm yellow liquid would have been great.

First - the summary: Truly horrible I took one look at this bottle of "special export" beer and knew right off the top what i was getting and i was still suprised at how brutal this stuff was. At 7%, what could you expect? Yeti smells like a bottle of virtually any type of 40oz widemouth strong beer and has the same dirty gold colour and the same eyewatering high-octane fumes. Poured into my glass with almost zero head accompanied by a handful of minescule bubbles and an unsavoury odour. The main flavor was alcohol - sign of an extremely low quality beverage. After a couple of swigs, even my must finish the beer cause i bought it pride disapeared, and it disappeared down the drain. One of maybe 5 or 6 beers that ive had to pour out. Positives: 1)Nice shiny holographic label for your bottle collection, 2)Claims to be "brewed from the finest malted barley".

is less more??? pours a very clear, very pale with a very thin white head, with very light carbonation, and just a little lacing. smell is very faint, of fruit, some grain, and a touch of perfume. taste is somewhat flat, sticky, light, grain, corn, and some malt, ends with a little hop in the back. overall doesnt taste bad, just doesnt taste much.

Bottle shared with DuffmanSW. This is bottled piss. Pours clear gold with a foamy white ring. Aroma is metallic with lots of wet dog and raw vegetables. Flavor is terrible. Cardboard, dog, and piss. Palate is thin under-carbonated water. One thing its got going for it...hides the 7% well. Drain pour.

Bottle from Bevmo thanks to Mspinders random beer buying kick....Pours clear golden with no head no carbonation.. Mike said it smelt like wet dog, I said cucumbers.. Tasted like the Bud Light of India with hints of cardboard.. Palate is thin and watery.. I will say I didnt know it was 7% till now

650ml bottle. Pale yellow with very little head. Kind of a dried grass aroma, light and a little sweet. Sweet malt taste and not much else.

A classic Asian pale lager. Not worth standing on its own, but works well to cool the palate while eating spicy foods. Subtle spicy bite in the finish to compliment the clear golden color and thin frothy head.
