Being a pale larger, it had a nice clear pale and inviting look to it. I'd honestly give this a 3 mostly because it stopped being so lively not long after hitting the glass.
It has a malty smell with a hint of hops to follow. Having a strong dark roast with citrus as an afterthought.
Up until recently, I've been drinking Coors Light so the flavour of this made my night. While Coors is quite weak in flavour, this had a nice burnt flavour with a lovely sweet and slightly bitter after taste. From what I can tell, something generally expected from pale lagers.
The mouthfeel was a let down as it does go flat quite quickly. When drank at the start, it felt crisp, light and carbonated. But after a while, it felt slightly oily over my tongue and cheeks. Overall, this does come quite high in my favourite beers up to date with an overall experience of 3.25 as the look and feel let me down more than the smell and taste was enjoyable.

Purchased as a single at the LCBO. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass.

A- Opens well and pours a 1" head that is gone in less than 30sec. Clear and light gold color. Like a Heineken.

S- Very similar to a Heineken. Almost the same.

T- A bit like a Heineken but less hops and malt. It's a light Heineken

M- Dry and light. Very north American like.

O- Very much a Heineken that has been watered down a bit. Not one I will buy again.

Food Pairing

This ok beer went well with...... Anything a Heineken is good with such as light BBQ meats like a hot dog or mild sausage.

Format: a pretty awful-looking 500mL macro can.

Appearance: pours out a strong yellow with moderate visible carbonation. A limited head fritters away quickly to a scrappy film.

Aroma: a very light aroma of some sweet grains and an off floral of some kind.

Taste: again a light flavour of off florals and sweet but cheap grains. Not terribly impressive.

Aftertaste: the flavours drop away pretty quickly, which suits me fine.

Mouth feel: light to medium in weight, but still a bit flaccid due to the moderate carbonation. Mediocre.

Overall: definitely not one of the best lagers I have ever had. Pretty ordinary in aroma, flavour and feel. I don't think I'll bother with this one again.

I hated, hated, hated this beer. The worst possible combination of watery and distasteful. Plain horrendous. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

Disclaimer: Drunk from a bottle in Sweden. I'll give it the benefit of a doubt and assume its better on tap in the Philippines.
