12oz bottle, 2 cup Pyrex, no freshness markings.

It looks like the American Adjunct Lager it is. Pale yellow with a quickly dissipating white head. The bottle is very cool, with the squiggly shape found rarely on some Mexican beers and a cool old-school painted on label.

Smells of hay, slight hop mustiness.

Tastes of almost nothing. Lager flavor in the middle, with a finish that is surprisingly devoid of flavor. Lilting malt flavor into a clean aftertaste.

Water for mouthfeel, less carbonation than style average.

There are many like it and I'm sure this cold one would refresh you on a hot day as would the others. It is very clean.

Pours a clear light golden color with white head. Cereal grains on the nose, with maltiness; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a little sweet lager flavor.

Brewed in the UK by Carlsberg,
Pale yellow.
Yuk aroma - no further comment.
Sweet followed by light bitterness. I guess plenty of people out there drink this stuff.
The colder the better.

A- Beer is clear and transparent, light golden yellow, foam innocent, delicate and long-lasting.
S- Beer has a very strong aroma of malt and floral, sweet and grains, but very short. It is easy to recall the taste of the rice fields.
T- Beer is very refreshing, very malty taste, and a hint of sweetness.
M- Beer is light. Too short, but it thirst. There is no burden in your mouth.
O- Beer is extraordinary flavor, great sense of the affection. It is suitable for a drink at summer in California. Coupled with the hot pot is very suitable.
