Pours a crystal clear golden color with a white head. Aroma is nice pilsner malts, honey, some vanilla, a floral hint, and peppery hops. Flavor is honey, floral, and a bitter peppery finish.

BelgianBeerGal (3247) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Can in Seoul. Best part of the this beer is the classy looking can. It’s mostly downhill from there. Weird sweet corn aroma and the flavour is really flat with a strange sour finish. Not terrible, just not good.

canned. pale yellow, fizzy with not much sign of a head. dull and flavourless with no bitterness and a weird artificial lemon finish

douglas88 (6336) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 21, 2008
Can thanks to rayg1. Pours a light gold with a thick frothy white head. The aroma and taste are basically a strong malt. A ton of corn and some sweetness, but if Iím gonna have a lager I prefer this type which stresses a more natural malt flavor. Not bad at all.

Another "fine" example of beer found in Okinawa. Iím not expecting too much from this one but letís find out. 350ml can. Pours a pale yellow with a finger thick head that lasts fairly long but eventually fades to only a ring. Aroma is some hops, a bit more than I was expecting but still a funny sweetness presists that is not exactly pleasant. Taste is fairly sweet and tastes of corn. Actually alot of corn, this is one of the strongest corn flavors Iíve ever had in a beer. Seriously tastes like eating sweet corn on the cob. While this beer wasnít horrible it certainly isnít a striking example of beer. If I never saw this one again I wouldnít shed a tear.

KnutAlbert (6267) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2008
350 ml can. Pale beer, lively carbonation. Malty, quite sweet. Grain or cereals. A little dryness in the finish, but not enough hops. With some more crispness, this would have been decent.

ogivlado (5903) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 23, 2007
Canned(350ml). -Clear golden coloured, minimal white head, malty nose. The aroma is weak malty, slight hoppy and faint fruity with rather bitter finish. Very industrial.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - OCT 10, 2007
Dinking canned Japanese Macro while watching "Americaís Got Talent", Iíve reached a new low. Iím not sure how Iíve missed this one, I hauled a can back to the states for Beerguy101 and MWSF to try so now I guess it is my turn. A medium to deep golden color, foamy eggshell white head. A sweet, slight fruit scent with a bit of cotton candy thrown in. Sweet flavor, flower nectar with a hint of cardamom. A short sweet follow. Certainly a step above the average macroswill most convenience stores offer but still not on par with most Japanese micros.
