look: 2 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

A: Clear golden color. The white head is really small and rather light, sinks instantly. No lace.

S: Lots of corn. Bitter hops is mild as is the malt. Some faint nettles and grass.

T: Bready malt, sadly infested with corn. Bitter hops. Buttery. Mild citric.

M: Short aftertaste, medium body and rich carbonation - no surprises there...

O: A thirst-quencher - but so is water...

2.53/5  rDev -13.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.5

A - Clear Amber colour, white foamy head that dissipates quickly.

S - 100% pure malt, so on the nose is pure malt, slight breadiness and a hint of sour lemon which must be from the hops.

T - Sweetness from the malts, with no lingering hoppy bitterness.

M - Gentle carbonation, leading to a slightly drying finish

O - As south american pale lagers go, it is the best of a bad bunch, the only saving grace is that their are no unnecessary adjuncts in it.

Best before 4/13/13.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt and some slight fruity and grassy aromas. Taste is much the same with a mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty poor beer that has a better smell than taste in my opinion.

330ml twist off bottle served in a Weizen glass.

A: Pours a clear golden yellow color forming a small fizzy bubbled white head. Low retention and only few lacings left

S: Sweet malts, adjunct malts (mainly corn), Lager yeasts and some almost imperceptible notes of hops in the end

T: As the nose. Sweet upfront. Sweet caramel malts, adjunct malts, bready Lager yeasts, very ligh bitterness in the end. In overall a slightly sweet beer with a strange faint hoppy bitterness

M: Very light and watery body and medium to low carbonation. Aftertaste is a bit annoying, a mix of cardboard and weird bitterness (I'm asking myself what type of hops do they used here...)

O: Average drinkability. A bit annoying, actually. A beer that I won't try again...
