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.

This one is really bad. Smells like a urinal.

Tastes like skunky Miller Lite. I bought it for the cool bottle. A very poor beer.

The bottle is awesome, but the beer within is skunky and not so good. Buy it, pour it out. And use the bottle for something else.

From an interesting green, Buddha-shaped bottle, this beer is pale yellow with no real head. The aroma is sulfur and grain. The taste is slightly salty, and sweet. No real malt or hop character. Not appealing at all.

This beer smells like someone put roadkill in a bathroom. There is no aftertaste. I think it's trying to be a peroni but it doesn't live up to that

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.

S- Skunky, light malts and grains. Grassy.

T- Grass, golden malts, wheat.

M- Super light with overcarbonation.

O- Smell sucks, taste is meh.

Ugh, was it Bobby or Patrick that shared this beast? Either way, you suck.

A: The beer is a pale straw color with a short lived white head.

S: A distinct aroma of cigarettes and skunk. It's quite vegetal with plenty of corn. There's a bit of garbage water to it which only makes things better. Strangely, some grapes and corn syrup.

T: At least the flavor isn't quite as atrocious. Straw and corn are the biggest contributors. Not much in the way of cigarettes, though there still is some old vegetable smell to it. It's also sort of watery.

M: Very light in body with a medium level of carbonation.

O: Yeah, the bottle might be cool, but this beer is not good at all.

Nice looking bottle. However, taste is bland. There is no aftertaste whatsoever.
Would rather has a Heineken

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.

Horrible beer. Gifted to me at Christmas. The smell alone told me that I'd be pouring it down the drain. Took one sip and moved on

A: Poured a clear, very pale straw color, nearly no head, very small amount of lacing

S: skunk

T: A skunky fuller Bud with some diacteyl

M: light, carbonation could be a bit higher

D: Little bit sweet, very skunky, not something I would ever buy again, mainly got it for the bottle

look: 1.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.75

Pours a pale honey color with a quickly receding white, fizzy head. No retention, no lace.
Smell is slightly sweet, hops, malt and a floral note.
Taste is tortilla chips, hops, malt and a sweet note. Balance is decent.
Weak bodied, watery, under-carbonated, slightly drying. This is basically a somewhat more flavorful version of any megabrew light adjunct lager. Nothing to recommend it.
