2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
goes well with the obvious type of food. not a bad brew. clean tasting and palate cleaning. a fuity flavor that is watery and weak and seems to have been skunked down with an opposing taste. extra points for clever chemistry. nice carbonation that is not overpowering. can’t imagine just drinking the beer. it’s a food brew.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Received from my Japanese father in law. He loves this stuff. Gone in 60 seconds. Thick full lasting head, and not bad lacing. Slightess of skunkiness. Watery, light yellow color. Watery, but not watery enough, theres some off flavor hiding in there. Still drinkable, but there are times he offers me them, and I have a hard time quaffing it down.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A gold lager with a thick white head. Aroma of crisp malts and rice, a bit of burned corn. In mouth, a light sweet malt, with clean finish, not offensive, and thirst quenching. Bottle from singles bin at LCBO.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Canned 500ml. Pours a yellow, light golden beer with a quick diminishing bubbly head. Weak metallic malty aromas. Sweet taste, metallic, very low bitterness. Cereal, some rice... Very weak, metallic, grainy. Bitter finish. Indeed, there is a dry finish, but it isn’ t pleasant at all though. To bland to be offensive. Very watery.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, a clear golden yellow, very carbonated with just the odd bubble for a head. Grainy malt mostly, not a very strong hoppy aroma. A dry palate, yes, but also tartish with just a touch of sweetness. Some malt flavour, but not so much. Pretty poor.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma is light malt and barely noticeable hop odor. Some notes of sulpher as well. Pretty simple. Absolutely no complexity, no substantial flavors other than alcohol and a little generic hoppiness. Weird aftertaste in the malt tastes a bit like cardboard.
