Had a bottle of this at a bar in Ho Chi Minh served by the nice beer girl in a tiny San Miguel dress. From notes.

A - Poured slightly darker than gold. Bright with a one finger white head that left spotty lace and a film of retention.

S - A little corny with sweet grain. Feel like I've written that far too often lately. Pretty typical Asian lager.

T - Not bad. Sweet grain and lot's of light sweet malt. A touch of corn, but nothing too bad.

M - Good carbonation, a light body, and a sweet clean finish. Smooth.

O/D - Not terrible. Standard and acceptable. Fairly smooth flavour made this go down well, but I certainly didn't think too highly of it.

A - Pours a very murky yellow with a masive white head. Left a decent amount of lacing.

S - Lots and lots ot grains and skunk. And that's about it.

T - Loads of grain up front, along with some skunk and unrippened apple, along with a tart sweet finish.

M - Medium bodied with heavy carbonation.

O - Overall, it was just another German Pilsner.

This is a pale yellow clear liquid of some sort. It as no special color. No special smell. It comes from the islands. Taste is of a cheap massed produced copy-paste beer. There is nothing ere. Nothing different. Hints of canned corn and no hops. I do not see anything going anywhere wit this, the name is deceiving as it is for marketing and that is all.

A thin head on a clear, bright golden colored body.
The aroma is non-existent; the mildest grain.
The taste is mildly bitter and then watery middle to end.
A crisp texture, high carbonation and light body.
A lot going against this beer: smell, no taste and high carbonation coming up at the top of the list.
