Capa (2566) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2007
UPDATED: APR 26, 2007 Pours golden with a large fizzy white head. Aroma was corn and maybe a bit of malt. Body is rather fizzy. Flavor is muted, but some malt, and hops. It’s just another macro. There are much better Japanese macros out there.

12oz, no date. Pours a crystal golden with a one finger white head--it does last for a minute or so, which I find good for a pale lager. Aroma of grain, corn, sweat (though not necessarily offensive B.O.), and some sweet malts.Flavor is fairly papery, mild hop bitterness--maybe a little grass--with some grain and a bit of metal. Semidry finish. Moderate carbonation with a watery body. There was nothing offensive about this beer, but there wasn’t hardly anything to it. So for a pale, it’s decent.

Certainly very dry. Aroma is pretty much nonexistant. Appearance is not bad, very cloudy but doesnt have much structure to it. Mouthfeel is smooth (with warm sake) and flavor is sweet and acidic, not a good combo.

17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2007
Tried one warm and a few cold.. the cold ones didnt have any carbonation and the flavor was strictly of malt. the warm one actually had decent carbonation, head and a nice taste of apples.... mb this is a lager to be enjoyed a little warmer than most.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - FEB 26, 2007
Very light, easy drinking brew, clean on the palate, watery, great with japanese food,but so is an Iced tea, or sake, a nice thirst quencher!

DarkFaerytale (21) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 26, 2007
bottle into schooner glass, very aussie... mostly metalic with very (very) slight floral aroma, really lovely clear beer...no head. flavour is of metal and some kind of cleanser, palate is thin and medium carbonation, good for excessive swilling. not exactly the best beer in the world...it’s a change from VB and Carlton draught...not much of one tho

Braincage1 (147) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - FEB 25, 2007
Bottle at a hibachi resteraunt. Poured light yellow with a thin head. Taste was slighlty hoppy and watery but better than a Bud light. Went well with the meal.

doubelknv3 (1081) - Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2010 A bit hoppier than Sapporo and farily dry finish. Very lite aroma with watery pale gold appearance. re-rate notes: Lite grain aroma. Clear golden with frothy white head that quickly disapates. Full body lager, rice, and grains. Carbonated with mild dry bitter finish.

As far as pale lagers go this isn’t bad.The usual evidence is there. Weak aroma, pee-like pour with no head. Metallic and watery taste. But this beer would be very refreshing as a lawnmowing break. The commercial description says it all. It is very crisp nd clear. No aftertaste at all....then again...no taste at all.
