2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not much to be said here. Pours up yellow and fizzy with a head that quickly totally dimishes. The aroma is at least a little better as there is a tiny hint of hops in there somewhere. Flavor is not unpleasant, just totally underwhelming. Would be good to give to a man dieing of thirst, otherwise very forgetable.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear, light golden body with a medium white head. Aroma is sweet malty/grainy. Taste is much the same, with hint of bitterness at the end. Finish is dry.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
A cereal fizz pushes a swill aroma...A dry finish battles with a urine-like astringency...This minty fresh thirst quencher vanishes with agility from the tastebuds and does not leave any calling card whatsoever...Part I of the bored senseless "Free on the Plane, Wouldn't Have it Otherwise" endeavour...

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma: Has a musty smell to it and not much else.
Appearance: Poured from the bottle with a small white head which quickly faded. Didn't leave a lot of lacing. Amber in color.
Flavor: Drinkable, but tastes pretty much like an American mass produced beer. Nothing special here.
Palate: A good amount of carbonation adds to a medium mouthfeel.
Overall: This beer was just plain boring. It wasn't bad, but it didn't have a lot going on. It could have used some hops and malt. I think the word DRY in Japanese translates to BLAND in English.

Pretty much like most other Asian beers. Very comporable to Sapporo, or Kirin Ichiban.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Good malty pilseneresk aroma, very crisp. Pours to a golen colour with a white foamy head. Super non-dememo taste, super dy yes, but also super taste less. Has np real body or flavour yet the dryness in the finish is pleasant.

nice crisp asian beer, nothing to blow your load over, but definitely better than the rest of the crap coming out of there

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Instead of crisp and refreshing I am getting boring and bland. Not bad for washing down sushi, but on its own it is very boring.
