look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - gold with a thin lacing of soft, loose head that has no retention

S - very skunky, musty, grainy

T - grassy, light grains, faint earthiness

M - smooth, well carbonated, light to medium bodied

This started as just another import; skunky and unpleasant. The flavor, however, is much different. The flavor has a light malt character and a moderate, grassy hop character. The drinkability is great. Crisp, clean, refreshing. This is definitely one of the better adjunct lagers out there.

Transparent yellow in body with white bubbly head that fades fast. Aroma of most adjunct lagers: light grain and hops. Tastes of light grains, hop bitterness, a bit grassy and some sweetness. Light bodied with mild carbonation. Such an easy drinker that doesn't gross me out.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: thin white head an no lace on a clear straw yellow body.

S: musty and bittering hops and some light grain.

T: sweeter than expected from the aroma. Mosty grain and sweet corn.

M/: light body and moderate carbonation with a quick drop off in feel at the end. Smooth as oppose to crisp which is surprising.

Overall: some surprises with this one. Actually a decent beer for the genre.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

appearance: Crystal clear gold look, with a little white head
smell: Mild sweet aroma. This beer just don't have enough aromas.
Taste: Like smell, this beer don't have strong taste. Just mild wheat taste and very weak sense of alcohol.
Overall: Regardless of that mild smell and taste, this beer perfectly goes with light chinese meal. I've drank it in chinese restaurant.

Serving type: bottle
