Pours a light golden yellow color. Aromas of grains and maybe some minor hop action. Flavor was crisp, but sort a bland. Still better than most lagers.

Light beer taste with a tinge of a hoppy flavor at the finish. Good for cleansing the palate between each course.

21.4oz bottle at a Jappanese Steak House - chose as an alternative to Sapporro or U.S. Macros. Poured with with a thin head - unappealing aroma similar to Coors Original. Nice and dry tasting, with a slightly hoppy flavor. Cleansed the palate pretty decently and was a good, palate cleaning, unobtrusive complement to the meal.

Bottled, clear yellow, light head, malt and hop aroma, very dry with heavy carbonation, subtle grain flavor with a hint of bitterness. Iíd buy it again.

Can. Had this beer in a huge can a few months back but I remember it very well cause it wasnít very good. Very light yellow in color and very wheaty smell. Slightly better than an American Macro but not much better. If you smelled the top of the can it smelled skunked. Iím sure iíll drink this sometime again.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2006 Pours yellow with a fully receding white head. Smells somewhat appealing, notes of sweet corn and bready malt. Tastes like bready lager yeast, a bit of rice, and some toasted malts. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with lively carbonation, not overly fizzy. A pretty good companion with sushi.

I had it in a japanese restaurant in manchester. Its pretty boring and tastes just like budweiser. I guess its the japanese version or something.

Bottle. Poured a light yellow with a substantial white head. Smelled like rice and urine. Tasted about the same. Slightly sweet with not much hop flavor. I gave into my fraternity brothers and decided to try sake bombing, which (slightly) improved the flavor.

In the bottle from the grocery store. Pale yellow in color, white head, but very fine bubbles. Not an over carbonated beast like many of this ilk. Aroma is faint- maybe a little sake-like rice, but not much of that. No hops anywhere to be found. Mildest of palates, you could be drinking rice water. I remember that the price of a pitcher of this stuff in Yokohama was around $25 US in a fancy-pants bar for tourists.
