Fun bottle. Freaks folks out at first glimpse. Beer was fine, but, it may have been through a couple of temperature variations before it made my beer frig. Impacted overall taste.

I picked this "little" Buddha up today and it was pretty good not the best but not the worst. Its head is white and quite big and fluffy. The aroma is a nice light hoppyness and vague citrus. The taste is nice and light. And color is pale yellow. Overall this is a beer more for decoration than anything but still is a so so beer.

Bought a single bottle, and poured it in my ceramic beer mug. It's a very pale straw color with a fluffy white head that dissipates rather quickly. I noticed the aroma that others commented about, but wouldn't say it's skunky. It reminds me of Heineken or Pilsner Urquell, and I suspect it's just the variety of hops they used for bittering, and none of it really comes through in the flavor. Overall, this is a very drinkable lager that comes in a fun bottle. I'm not sure I'd stock it, but I might order it if I'm feeling like beer at the Asian restaurant in Marquette (as they serve it by the bottle.)

Not bad for what it is. I bought a twelve pack of cans from an international food market nearby. I don't generally drink this kind of beer, but I thought I'd give it a try. I believe that beer, especially imported beers should be bought canned as often as possible; bottling in my opinion raises the risk of fouling the taste. Probably not worth 15.99 per twelve pack, but I can mark it off my list, and give it a better rating than most others have, though most others fell for the "cool" (though probably skunky) bottled version.

Pours very clear. smells off as other suggest. typical beer taste. Nothing special here other than the very unique bottle for sure. Could see this one popular with the College crowd ;-)
