2.25/5  rDev -13.5%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Pours a typical clear golden color, topped with an average white foamy head that immediately settles down.
The aroma is easily picked up, some malts and lots of grain.
The taste is sweet at first, slightly bland - lacks some bubbles. Balanced body with a tiny amount of bitterness in the finish.
Drinkable, but that's it.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

330ml bottle poured into pint glass 18/3/14

A pale yellow with lots of big bubbles feeding a finger of foam that's gone in seconds and leaves several patches of random lace

S sweet grains, cardboard, floral hops are faint but there, not skunked but has a chemical thing going on that doesn't work that well, smells like a corona or something similar

T doesn't stray far from the smell, not overly offensive but not exactly pleasant to drink, tastes like cardboard

M thin and watery, bubbles foam it up and its flat in seconds, vegetal aftertaste leaves something to be desired

O not quite awful but undesirable, tastes like so many other crappy warm climate macro lagers I'd pass if given a second chance

I didn't buy this one because I thought it would be good I bought it for the country tic. One of those beers that you could drink on a hot beach if you had to but I'm not on a hot beach in Indo

look: 2 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Pours gold with a quickly fading head.
Nose shows grassy hops, banana, vegetable notes, sweet cereal and cardboard.
More vegetable notes as a flavours along with lemon characters and cereal/cardboard notes again.
Could use more carbonation, seems a little flat.

Bottle at Pelangi, Amsterdam, Netherlands

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high head that has good retention properties and only died down a bit.
S: Light to moderate aromas of adjunct malts are present in the nose-corn stands out in particular.
T: Like the smell, the taste is a little sweet and has flavors of corn and adjunct malts along with a very slight amount of bitterness from the hops.
M: It feels light-bodied and a little smooth on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but isn't very flavorful and seems a little bland.
