Format: a standard 330mL brown bottle with a pretty ordinary macro label.

Appearance: pours out pale yellow in colour with a mass of carbonation. A flaccid head pops up to a fluffing finger before frittering away to virtually nothing. Not a good sign.

Aroma: not much here at all - there are some corn adjuncts and a touch of awkward hops. Not brilliant.

Taste: again those corn adjuncts without much backing it up at all. It's drinkable, but that's about it.

Aftertaste: awkward bitterness from the corn and hops. Not a great beer.

Mouth feel: light in body with a chunky carbonation that somehow manages not to bring any decent flavours forward. I think this beer is simply too adjunct-forward.

Overall: not a great lager at all. Way too adjunct-forward without much to back it up at all. I'll avoid this one in the future.

Experienced in : Manila
Appealing to me : smooth texture
Less appealing to me : less foam and a little sweet

I am neutral on this beer.
