1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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 I’m gonna have a lager I prefer this type which stresses a more natural malt flavor. Not bad at all.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Another "fine" example of beer found in Okinawa. I’m not expecting too much from this one but let’s 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 I’ve ever had in a beer. Seriously tastes like eating sweet corn on the cob. While this beer wasn’t horrible it certainly isn’t a striking example of beer. If I never saw this one again I wouldn’t shed a tear.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dinking canned Japanese Macro while watching "America’s Got Talent", I’ve reached a new low. I’m not sure how I’ve 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.
