To start, I am a collector of all different types of bottles, so the look of this bottle drew me in as something to keep when I was finished with the beer, regardless of whether or not I liked it. Now onto the important part.

A: Plain, with a pale peach colour. Similar to what Coors or Bud Light looks like.

S: Neutral. Nothing special. Has the smell of stale Cheerios.

T: Surprisingly, this beer is tasty! Has a sweet taste to start, followed by what I would describe as freshly made bread. Nothing too harsh with this beer at all.

F: Has a thick swallow to it. Light carbonation, but enough to give you the refreshing burn. Has great drinkability, as once you are done with a sip, you want to go for another!

Overall, I would say this beer is quite refreshing, and can be drank at anytime of the day. I wouldn't get drunk on this beer, but is a great beer to have around, plus you get a cool bottle!

A pale yellow color with a one finger white fizzy head with poor retention. The beer is clear with good carbonation.

N: A slight skunky aroma, bread, yeast, corn, hay, and a some floral,

T: Skunky, yeasty, corn, hay, and some toasted crackers.

M: Carbonated, and light body.

O: Not a very good beer it does have a cool looking bottle.

From the intriguing bottle, it pours a clear golden amber with a nice head, dissipating to a thin layer as you slowly drink it. Initial funky adjunct scent as the bottle was opened, followed by a more pleasant smell as you enjoy it. Light malty flavor. Better than I expected overall.

I just love this bottle - if you're gonna drink a lager why not go for this? I mean come on it comes in a green buddah shaped bottle for crying out loud. As far as taste goes it's a fairly straight forward lager. Nothing to write home about. I am not so sure it's a true a "pale euro lager" on par with a Stella but it's definitely better than any of the standard American "adjunct lagers" for sure.

I bought a 6pack for the really cool bottle, and the good luck, though they should probably sell them in 7packs for good luck , don’t ya think. This is my 3rd over the course of a week, and I didnt bother pouring this one into a glass. That tells you about all you need to know. A full step better than budweiser, but not much else. It’s cold beer. Enjoyable enough for the good luck."

4.7% ABV. Brewed with rice.
Poured into lager glass.
Clear light golden with decent white head, moderate retention, some laces.
Smell - grainy, slightly corny, rice, a bit papery.
Taste - clean malty, rather sweet, adjuncts, queer hues.
Light & crisp.
