First had: bottle from some friend's cooler

First beer I ever had. Good thing I kept trying.

Pours a clear straw color with a small, white head that fizzles out rather quickly. Not much in the smell other than skunk and some light malts. About the same in the taste: stale malts and lots of skunk. Fizzy and weak, light bodied, and none to drinkable. Please avoid.

Holy skunk, Batman! Usually the first thing I comment on id the appearance, but I didn’t even get it out of the bottle before this NASTY wave of skunk hit me. Didn’t get any better when I pour it into the glass. Let’s let it sit for a bit and see if the stink subsides a bit. It’s a pale gold brew with a small, white, rapidly diminishing, fizzy head. OK, the stink did go away a bit, but it’s still not pleasing. Now I can pick up a corny, grainy, adjunct smell with a little floral hop to it. Taste is vegetable-like, with a skunk kick. Even my belch is skunky. This is just wrong, and it’s going down the drain. I remember back in the day, I used to like this stuff. Maybe it’s a bad bottle, but looking at the past few reviews, I’m thinking it’s just a crappy beer. Avoid.

[Eyes] Clean Yellow Brillant looking with a respectable head.

[Nouse] Some hops in there, very light Like a German pils.

[MOuth] Tastes like water with a little touch of alcohol: crisp and clean with absolutely no respectable flavor, is fresh like a comercial Comun pale lager

Serving type: bottle

Nose of metal, and cats pee (for those of who that don’t know cats pee is a legitimate smell description often used by winos.) Taste is watery, grainy and rather sweet. A cloying sweetness with faint hints of artificial grape flavor is present instead of bittering. This is a nasty beer. It seems so innocuous, and I have never encountered any American macros I simply could not handle, but this one will go down as the first. I gave this one to my roommate. Puke

Funky skunk taste, watery, weak, and a waste of money for what you pay for, $16 Aussie dollars a sixer( around $8US), tastes like evry other mass produced lager ever made, quite sweet, very one dimensional mass market style lager. zzzzzzzz............

A traditional mass produced Canadian beer. It pours light golden, with a faint aroma, and a medium white foamy head. It has a light lager taste, that leaves your palate dry and somewhat unquenched. It does have hints of cereal, wheat, and grassy flavors. They are easy to drink and filling, leaving you feeling kind of bloated. I was able to procure this beer at Feldman's Market in McAllen, Texas.
