A: Transparent yellow with whit foam and bubbles

S: Grassy, sweet, grain, weirdly metallic, just strange.

T: Grassy, cloying, grassy, adjunct flavors of corn and rice syrup… just plain bad. Horrid. It's like... rotten or something (and no I don't mean to imply the beer has gone bad, I think this is how it was meant to be). It literally is making me cringe with every sip. I think I need a doctor.

M: Bubbly and coating yet somehow thin at the same time. Feels like drinking fermented high fructose corn syrup.

O: No. Don’t do it. Don’t be fooled by the cool bottle. Want an Asian beer, get some Asahi or Tsingtao or Tiger. Thing is, I've had adjunct lagers that were drinkable (such as Mickey's) but this garbage is just unbearable. Ugh, it's coating my mouth like some kind of undissolvable oil.

I picked a six pack up at World Market, mainly because the bottle is cool! It is your typical greenbottle lightstruck lager from Asia. Weak and watery with a slightly skunky smell. It probably would go perfect with a #36 at your local Chinese takeaway. The alcohol is a whopping 4.8. Not sweet and easy to drink. A forgettable beer. Nice bottle though!

Bottle: Poured super light bright yellow lager with a small pure white foamy head with light retention. Aroma of adjunct and fusel alcohol is not very enticing. Taste is also dominated by adjunct with light fusel alcohol notes. Body is light with medium carbonation. Not just bland but actually quite bad.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Pale saffron-coloured with medium-sized head, quite a fair amount of lacing. Lots of carbonation. Looks decent but not great.

A lot of unpleasant yeast and pride of ringworm on the nose. Light and ricey malt. Ever-so-slight hint of spice. That's either a mistake though, by me probably but if it's there, by the brewer. I can't imagine it being intentional.

A lot of malt and sticky yeast on the palate. Yuck, indeed. I could tell from the nose that this taste would be poor and sadly, I was correct. A lot of sticky bready yeast and a horrible adjunct flavour, palate is short but with a lingering unpleasant hang, and mouthfeel is viscous yet watery with nothing to recommend it.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from an 11.16 oz. anthropomorphic green glass bottle into a Westbrook pint glass.

A: Clear and straw-colored with a small white head and modest visible carbonation.

S: A very strong sulfur up front, maybe a bit skunked, with some grainy and pilsner malts underneath. Honestly smells quite unpleasant.

T: Light pilsner malts and corn adjunct sweetness. It is less sulfurous and skunky than the smell, just overall pretty tasteless. It does have an undesirable metallic aftertaste after the swallow.

M: Light, watery body. Low alcohol presence, and adequate carbonation.

O: Poor, very poor. I wouldn't recommend this to even a macro lager drinker. Avoid.
