Bought a 6-pack Times Supermarket $6.99
Smel of malt
Clear golden color
Light mouthfeel
Medium carbonation
Sweet malt flavors, easy drinking
Overall not bad for a macrobrew. Not something I would drink all the time, but once in a while just to have something different from domestic macrobrews.

L - pale golden, white head, dissipates quickly
S & T - wheat, very lightly toasted bread, wet hay, generic sweetness, generic lingering, surprisingly strong bitterness
F - watery

O - it's beer, quite decent for a chugger I guess.

I'd recommend this one over the Estrella Damm, but inversely, I'd also recommend the Moritz lager over this one.

Pours a clear gold color with lots of visible carbonation and a finger of white crackling head.

Smel is slightly skunky. Lots of barley and malts with some water on the nose. Smells like beer.

Slightly skunky on the taste other wise there is something like a nice lager underneath.

Mouth is fairly light with a nice easy finish

Overall without the skunk I think this be a fanastic beer for a get together It seems to be easy drinking but wah aout our Fracisco 123

Pours a nice clean bright golden yellow. Head disappears quickly. The appearance is the best quality. Buttery, syrupy tones are too overpowering to make this beer enjoyable

On tap in Scotland in 2016.
This is a typical macro-lager: good looking, mild aroma, blase flavor. It's best characteristic may be the extremely durable white head. Although it has no obvious flaws other than being rather mild, it lacks flavor, character and interest.
