320ml can from 7-Eleven in Malaysia (RM7.50):
Light and incredibly clear, golden straw coloured with a thin, half centimetre head that is bubbly but at least it manages to hold for a little while, barely budging at all over the first few minutes.

Sweet with a lot of corn and grain plus a little bit of alcohol and plenty of skunk coming through. There is a sort of metallic smell initially as well but the beer smells quite cheap on the nose.

Bland tasting at first with a sort of sweet, carbonated water taste and some mild bitterness and some skunky flavours as well. There is some faint grassy hops and a little corn with some cheap lager malts as well.

Grainy & light bodied with a skunky flavour throughout but nothing overpowering at least. There is a clean but very bland mouthfeel and the finish has touches of bitterness and is dry too.

A very poor effort and if I'm honest it was pretty much what I had been expecting from this one. Not one I can recommend and I can't imagine the beer is any good no matter where it is brewed around the world.

Appearance: Yellow, lots of bubbles, rocky head.

Smell: Corny, mild seltzer.

Taste: Grain, corn, mild sweetness. A hint of bitterness.

Drinkabilty: Easily drinkable, hot weather beer.

Another cheapo beer from the 7-11 in Hong Kong. I thought this could be bad since it was the cheapest in the fridge, but it's not bad. Seemingly every beer is corny and sweet here in China.

Got this single 330mL bottle at Manchester Wine and Liquors, Manchester CT, for $1.33. Date stampled on the label is 06.10.2006, so this could be quite old (preparing for skunk). Served cold in a chilled pint glass.

Clear deep yellow brew generates a half inch of bubbly foam that settles quickly to just a spotty layer. Mild aroma of clean semi-sweet pale malt and a tiny bit of soft lemon hop. Taste follows from the smell with a little fruity aspect to the sweetness. It's an awkward level of taste, too little to make it worthwhile and just barely enough to keep it from being completely flat. Feel is thin with a soft fizzy carbonation, watery.

SKOL lager beer is a yellow color with a one finger white head that dissipates into a collar.

The aroma is that sweet grain lager smell, no sign of the dreaded skunk anywhere.

The taste follows the aroma with the grainy sweet, but in addition, it has a light lime citrus presence.

The mouth feel is light bodied and minimal carbonation.

Drinkability, like most acceptable tasting lagers, is very good.

Absolutely nothing wrong with this lager, except that it's a lager and not a big hop or malt bomb.

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a rich golden color with a small head. Smells mostly of malts, some hops. Taste is crisp, a bit of hops, not overly flavorful. Feels light in the mouth and has decent drinkability. Overall not a bad brew, but nothing great.

Clear pissy looking yellow with a puny white head that shrinks to a skim almost immediately after pouring into the glass. The nose is sweet barley and grass with a pronounced mineraly quality. This beer is just not very good. Light cooked corn with a healthy dose of brown paper bag. Watery is the best description I can give the mouthfeel on this one. Don't bother with Skol, it stinks.
