pours a pale yellow color with a large bubbly head that is snow white. taste and the aroma are pretty much the standard main stream lager. nothing fancy here or great, but it's drinkable

    pours a clear medium gold in color with a white head with moderate retention. See a little lacing. The aroma is corn, faint grains and a metallic twang. The taste starts off with some corn sweetness and some grains in the background. A slight hop bitterness through the middle. A clean finish with no lingering aftertaste. The mouthfeel has a clean h feel and has crisp carbonation.

    Slightly more bitter than the average international style lager, and that is what this is. "Premium" lager.... o well. Grass, straw and highly carbonated.

    Just another in a long line of less than stellar, overpriced pale lagers. Vitually no aroma and what there was was grassy/corn. Clear pale golden with no head - no lacing. Thin on the pallette. Weak flavor of... almost nothing.

    Bottle: Poured a golden color lager with a medium size bubbly head with average retention for the style. Aroma of light adjunct with sweet notes is more or less pleasant. Taste is very similar to most cheap lager out there with loads of corn and other adjunct which provide a sweet malt backbone. Not worth drinking on a regular basis.

    fairly typical pale lager. maybe some cereal type grain in the flavor and texture. almost nothing on the nose. not too bad, but not really worth the $$$ either.

    Poured a bright yellow colour with lots of sudsy white head. The lacing was poor, as was the retention. A citrus aroma arises from the glass, with some slight hints of light malts. The flavour has some slight citrus tones and a minor hoppy taste. Light bodied and slightly carbonated with a smooth finish with no aftertaste. Standard stuff here. I didn't expect much, and got more than what I originally expected.

    Pours a medium yellow body, good carbonation gives a decent white head, and a little bite. The aroma of corn and straw. Taste of grain, its a little sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Not a bad beer, but glad i got a single instead of the six pack.

    This is a typical pale lager. The beer is a clear gold colour with a huge frothy white head. The aroma is grainy and malty, a little hop presence. The flavour is grainy as well, nothing to write home about.

    Poured a nice golden color with a weak head. Had a slightly skunky aroma, but not too bad. Flavor was nice and grainy with a little hops to balance it out. Went down nice and smooth.

    Ubiquitous pale yellow appearance. Friendly attitude. Medium carbonation. Good example of a well mannered pale lager. Passable finish and it does not offend. Not as good as their dark brew.
