Poured a tall 500 ml can into a pint glass. "Why am I drinking this?" crosses my mind. A bright yellow hue with a crazy amount of beige foam ... Looks a lot like ginger ale. Smell is almost non-existent with the exception of a corn sugar sweetness accompanied by a twinge of wet grain. Tastes like vodka-harsh boiled grains, chalky grape juice or sour hard candy, and anemic grassy hops. Less sweet and perhaps just a smidgen more refined than American malt liquors but the same basic idea. A notable industrial alcohol warmth emerges and I am thinking that this is reminiscent of a very low-rent imperial pilsener. Watery body is coupled with the expected aggressive carbonation, and there's a hint of peppery spice that you don't get in North American brewed cheap beers. Finishes crisp but with more residual sweetness than a Euro pale lager, grainy with an echo of saccharine fruitiness. Basically the intent of such a beer is to provide a cheap intoxicant, a la North American malt liquors. It probably suits this purpose admirably and tastes marginally better than its New World cousins. That's the best that can be said.

Pours amber with a quickly fading head.
Nose shows hay, sweet clean malt, spicy hops, vegetal notes. Some industrial booze too.
Similar flavours, quite sweet with some booze and vegetal notes. Not much going on.
Needs more carbonation.
Could be worse...

Golden color with an one finger head with low retention but leaving some laces. Light aroma of pale malt, bread and vanilla. Malty flavor with notes of apple juice. Hints of minerals, vodka and syrup. Light body with good carbonation. Relatively smooth body given wheat addition and 7.9% ABV is surprisingly well hidden. I was expecting a blunt Malt Liquor with unpleasant flavors, but although plain and lacking hops, it is relatively decent for the style.
