Well I have not reviewed a real adjunct lager in a while. Poured from a bottle.

A thin layer of white head caps a fizzy "well-hydrated person's urine" yellow body. The head disappears in record time.

Smells a little like a skunk splashed with PBR. Actually there is a sweet corn aroma that dominates and it really isn't so bad.

Light malty flavors of corn, rice, and barley paired with a generic "hop" flavor (not like actual hop flowers, but rather a bitter shadow of them). Every bit as complex as the usual American examples of this style.

The mouthfeel is fizzy and light. Light body.

Conclusion: Reminds me of Heineken more than MGD or Bud. Not terrible but nothing different than the usual. I really enjoy beers like this from time to time actually. No major flaws, nothing to differentiate it from the next adjunct lager.

The pour is the appropriate pale yellow color with a short lived, but voluminous white head. An extremely powerful skunk aroma to this. A fair amount of grass along with some lemon, yeast, and sulfur. The flavor is mostly just sweet cereal notes with a bit of rice. Quite a bit of grass, lemon, and tons of skunkiness to go along with it all.

Enjoyed a 11.5 FL. OZ. - 340 ML bottle of this @ a friend’s house in Yakima, WA. Poured from the Blue/White Glazier labeled bottle into a 16oz Pint Glass. Has F05G21 on the front of the label (hardly visible) but doesn’t seem like a sign of a best by date...

Aroma- Almost no aroma present... Only thing I found was a sweet, watered down malt character. Below average for the style but should be some other things here!

Appearance- Pours a .5 finger head that dies quick. Has a pale straw colored body with great clarity. Leaves a bit of lacing behind.

Flavor- Very dry and has a sweet malty taste all the way through. No bitterness or hop, very average.

Mouthfeel- Light Bodied, High Carbonation, Corn, and this is all...

Overall Impression- A decent adjunct, but nothing special. Its always fun comparing different lagers from other countries and this one fell a bit below average. Give it a try yourself!
