Light yellow color. Dominant malty scent. Malty taste with low bitterness. Higher body than expected.

The best thing about this one, is that it is in fact a bit dry. This means that the flavour isn’t as damn sweet as most pale lager. Otherwise, it just sticks to the same old formula. Why did I bother...

Golden colour, pretty rich head. Apart from diacetyl in aroma, I found roasty notes and even hints of chocolate. Butterscotch is pretty dominant in flavour but the bitterness was not to be found. Very clean pale lager - I took it for a pilsner. Mouthfeel was almost medium. But then I sampled homebrewed bitters just before.

My favorite of the Japanese beers to enjoy with sushi. Nothing special, just the best of the 3 bad japanese beers. No real aroma. Did pour with a nice creamy head. Yellow, fizzy, dry.

Tasty with Korean after a few drinks. Enjoyable, kind of a sharp taste to it upon drinking.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Biggish white head of fine lace, subsides quickly. Pale yellow body. Sweetish light clean malt aroma with faint fruity spicy notes. Almost no taste at all, just faint fruitiness. In a way it’s impressive that it’s not watery, despite being almost devoid of taste. Faint hoppy aftertaste. Clearly extremely well made, but sadly all that skill has been expended on removing the taste rather than adding it.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2006 Very minimal aroma, and transparent bubbly appearance with very light yellow/gold color. A pretty good Asian beer. Great with spicy Thai or Burmese food.

bottle - Brewed and bottled by Molson in Canada. Pours up a thin, rapidly fading head. The aroma is minimal, just a bit of malt. The taste is as weak as the aroma and is a bit sweet, but it’s mostly just watery. Palate is thin and bubbly. It’s a typical fizzy, yellow pale lager with really nothing to recommend it. Avoid.
