Weak in color and aroma. Drinking too much of this can help your karaoke skills, but that is about it. This is better than a Bud Light, but that isn’t saying much.

FrankJohansen (3617) - Sabro, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2007
Bottle. Pale yellow colour with a small white head. Malty aroma and taste with a dry hoppy finish. Still boring.

nearbeer (4881) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Bottle, no pour. Aroma has some floral notes and some malt, no skunk is a plus. Taste is slight malt and maybe some floral hop, which is more flavor than I expected. Finish is dry and somewhat fruity-sour. Palate is highly tingly with a bit much carbonation, and light and dry as advertised. Almost seems like a mild bitter lite, and is one of the better industrial lagers. I still wouldn’t ever drink this if there were a good ale (or even a micro lager) available.

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2007
Yeah. A piss poor pale lager, Japanese style. Nothing redeeming about this. Only good for washing down some late night sushi. I’m done talking about this.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Just a shade from clear hay yellow with some white foam that settles quickly. Aroma is a mix of herbal hops and a saw dust metallic sour note. Vague bile sour flavor that recedes into a little herbal hop finish. Just so little going on here. Vacuous. Not surprisingly, dry. And water-like. But not necessarily an improvement on water.

ChrisTurner (207) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 16, 2007
Bottle -- Very unimpressive looking beer with next to no head with no retention and no lacing. Pale, unexciting yellow. Aroma is weakly malty. Thin, watery mouthfeel with soft drink-like carbonation. Flavour is crisp, light (very!) and refreshing but that’s it. A singularly unimpressive pale lager.

Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2007
Bottle. Pale yellow colour with a white head. Light grainy aroma. Very light lager flavour.

BREWMUSKCLES (2558) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 13, 2007
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.

wetherel (1863) - Cupertino, California, USA - MAY 8, 2007
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.

Lubiere (12883) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2007
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.
