Poured from a novelty Buddha bottle into a pint glass.

Clear pale yellow, no head to speak of.

Smells like a skunk. Hey, it's a green bottle light lager. I'd be stunned if it smelled any other way, to be honest. One builds up an odd anticipation of that skunked, lightstruck aroma, and it would be disappointing to not get it from a green bottle.

The taste is just about what one would expect. Very Heinekenesque, yet a bit creamier and not as crisp. It isn't awful by any means. It's just a simple light lager from a green bottle. Again, no surprise.

Mouthfeel is strangely creamy for the style, but not overly so. Otherwise it fits exactly what one would expect.

Overall, this isn't terrible. There are much better examples of the light lager style, hence the rating. It's made in China, so I suppose I have to hope there isn't some additive that will kill my dog the second I breathe on him, but otherwise it is decent. The novelty bottle is cute, and certainly an eye catcher on the shelf. Otherwise, worth trying once, but I can't see many going back for more.

I came across this at local sushi place. Pleasant summertime beer. Reminds me of a light Mexican beer. It is presented in a fun bottle referred to as a Bhudda Bottle for its shape.

[I am copying these notes over from RateBeer ... it does not require as long of review. I tasted this some time ago so I can't add anything.]

Sampled tonight on 3/12/14. Had this one before back in August, 2012. One of the coolest bottles out there that is embossed. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner flute glass (poolball 'Green 6').

Pours a straw-yellow in color with a very thin white head. Some light spotty lacing was seen. The aroma is of some sweet corn and maybe rice grains but that is about it. Slight 'skunky' as is super common for beers in a green bottle for some reason. The taste is actually more complex though light-bodied with a light sweetness from the corn and rice grains. No bitter or harsh aftertaste to speak of. Perfect carbonation. Overall, the cool embossed bottle is a keeper and worth that extra half a point higher rating I gave this one which was included in the rating. :)

Pours a light straw yellow color with a white, short lived frothy head. A bit of lace is left on the glass. Aroma of creamed corn, husk and clean, euro like malts. The taste is much the same. Bready, corn flake flavor and scarce leafy hop. Light, sugary body and real sweet. Overall, not too bad, not good either.

Pale Golden Color, with White head and Thin Lacing.

Coolest looking bottle I've seen with Buddha.

Detecting sweet notes of corn, wheat and possible rice grains.

Smooth Light body with average carbonation and no lingering after taste.

All around this beer was okay for me. I would drink it again if the price is right.

I would recommend this to people that like a mild tasting beer, one that goes well with food.
