330ml brown bottle.

Pours a very pale yellow, very light of body and clear and fluid in the glass. Head is white, quite fine and pretty solid, fed by stacks of carbonation. In reality it's perhaps a little overly fizzy. Specks of lace. Looks decent enough.

Despite the colour of the bottle, I get a distinct light-struck green bottle skunk to it. Some grainy characters and a slight estery sugar fermentation character. Some corn or other adjunct grain comes through. Mostly though, it's pretty light, rounded a little with a touch of metal. It's not bad.

Taste is very light and dry. It has a slightly rounded sweetness on the back but very little else—it gives it the slight after taste of sweet pea water. One thing in its favour is that it's actually quite hard to taste the booze: it comes across a little bit like just a pale lager.

Feel is very light as well. Again, it's doing a surprisingly good job at hiding the higher alcohol content.

Unfortunately, though, that's it's main benefit. It actually comes across as a pretty bland, if drinkable lager. So the hidden booze is just a trap or a benefit, depending on your preference.

Pours a two finger white head that vanishes quickly leaving no lace. Crystal clear light amber color. Light-medium carbonation and light-medium bodied. Sweet grain nose and flavor is malty sweet with a light hop finish. Boring, barely a lawnmower beer. 330ml bottle, from Gift Specialists Oceanside, California.

For a month in the Philippines, this and negra were standbys.

Pours a brilliant light golden straw with a half inch white head that dissipates fairly quickly, leaving modest lacing.

Corn, grain, butter, fruity esters, and light floral hops form the aroma.

Flavor reveals more diacetyl, with corn and grain at the backbone, fruity esters throughout, and a slight bitterness at the finish.

Body is moderate, with carbonation a tad high, and slight alcohol warmth.

Much more diacetyl than I recall, and the fruity esters are offputting, as well as the alcohol heat.
