This beer pours a clear pale straw color. The head is a half inch white cap which recedes quickly into sparse lacing. The aroma is of faint bready malt and hints of caramel. The taste is like the aroma, but a little stronger. The finish is a nice lingering light caramel. The mouthfeel is light bodied with lively carbonation. It is nice that the carbonation isn't so high that is masks the taste the way it does for most beers of this style. Overall, this is a pretty good adjunct lager. I could drink this again.

I have never seen this one in the States, but a friend in Montreal swears by it, so I got a couple while up north last christmas. It's better than Corona, but that's not saying much. And this coming from someone living less than 20 miles from the border. A little better with a lime but not worth seeking out unless it's over 100F. in the shade and you're tired of American lagers like Bud and Coors.

Poured a medium straw hue with a one finger creamy white head. There was decent retention and good lacing.

The smell featured a cooked corn adjunct aroma with a secondary husky grain.

The taste was mildly sweet which was a nice suprise, with a crisp grain and mellow hop. Not too much corn.

The mouthfeel was light and caronated with a light medicinal finish.

Overall a better than average macro. Tasty served ice cold.

Big thanks to steve and yonali for bringing this back from la republica dominicana.

Looks just like it should for the style. The clarity of an acid trip epiphany with carbonation thats more appropriate than a bill cosby stand up show.

The nose actually smells like a decent pilsner. A little bit of old ass grain makes its presence known though. Hiding like a rape that you somewhat enjoyed.

Taste is less appealing than the nose. Pretty much straight up adjunct lager, but the yeast profile seems more authentic, despite being older than larry kings suspenders.

mouthfeel is ideal for the style. Tickles the throat like pet dander during an allegra shortage.

overall, a very nice nose, but the flavor is nothing more than a slightly above mediocre macro lager. This could be an old can, probably is, but its ok.

poured from a 12 oz bottle

A: Pale yellow slight head no lacing

S: smells like a lager nothing really stands out too much.

T: very light, watery somewhat crisp.

D: It does remind me of some what Mexican beers in the fact that it is very easy going, feels like you can drink these all day.

F: easy finish.

okay beer, wouldn't go out my way to drink it again. But the bottle was pretty dope.

L - Pours a light, tinted gold with a thin white head, which managed to stay for quite a while.

S - The main smells I got where a floral hops and a slightly metallic smell.

T - The taste was very mellow, I got a bit of smoked fruits and a bit of wheat and hops.

M&D - It felt average in the mouth and went down very easily.

Overall not too bad, I am sure it makes more sense when drinking it in the sun in Rio!

Thanks to Mike for bringing this one over. Poured from bottle into LA tumbler, watery yellow in color with a white head that is gone almost immediately. Smell is watered down malt, slightly bready, honey and a hint of saaz/euro hops. Taste is a very watery honey, not a whole lot going on in the flavor. Pretty one dimensional. Slightly sweet in an artificial way, crisp finish. A watery light body with a medium carbonation, not too fizzy. For an American Adjunct lager, this isnt the worst thing out there. Very easy to drink, but not in a good way - one of the more watered down beers I have had to date. An average version of the style.

Had this at Penguin Pizza in Boston, because it's on my Mug Club list.

Pours a clear, goldeny color,with a tiny fizzy head, typical of this type. (Think Bud)

Underwhelming scent of mild grains and malt.

The taste is dominated by the malt(s). There's a slight earthiness to go with the malts and grain. Has mild bitterness in the end. Bitter and grainy, much like my grampa. It goes down smooth enough for the style, which is one of my least favorite. Probably not as terrible as some of the reviews make it seem, but for what it is, it's at least average. Crisp and fairly drinkable. I wouldn't go out of my way to find it, but not the worst macro lager I've ever had.

33 cl bottle from Swedish "Systembolaget".
Tried it on April 4, 2006.
LAbel said 4.8% ABV.

Light golden color, white bubbly head.
Malty scent, smells of flour and oat meal.
Thin watery malty taste, low bitterness.
Still a bit refreshing. Not too malty. Sweet after taste.

It’s different from the badly made Swedish and Danish beers that they usually sell cheap in Sweden.
