2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle 12 oz. Clear light amber with medium white head that diminished quickly. Small malty aroma. Light body with little texture. Small flavor with little finish. Below average brew.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very pale yellow with a good head that didnít last. Malty and a bit metallic on the nose, typical pale lager palate with a very dry finish indeed (which I donít mind from time to time-- with spicy food for example). Best of the Japanes pale lagers I think, but thatís not really saying much.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
One of the lightest beers out there in color. Aromas are earthy and grassy. Taste is dry, yes, but at the expense of flavor. Very macro-tasting.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Apparently good all year round. No. Designed, not crafted - itís a minimalistic aesthetic manifested in beer format - and itís bad. Crisp but hard, over carbonated, with all the character squeezed out. Try with sushi, light salad or as a palate cleanser if you must drink it at all. The nicely designed labelling may attract the image conscious.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pale, straw colour and is VERY carbonated with a grassy smell and sweet, hoppy flavour with a dry finish. My first Japanese beer. (500ml can)

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Korean resturant. Not bad at all. Sweet flavor that was a little different than I am used to from a pale lager. I actually liked it.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Golden color with film for head. Super-dry your not kidding, almost no aroma or flavor whatsoever. A little skunk with some spiciness. Sorry canít say much else.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle at a sushi reataurant. Pale yellow with a puffy white head that quickly disappears. Hyperactive carbonation that made it look more like ginger ale than a beer. Mild aroma, a bit of malt and some canned veggie notes. Very little flavour. Went OK with my sushi as I didnít really want anything with a lot of flavour to get in the way of the taste of the fish - but I couldíve gotten the same effect with a bottle of mineral water...

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
(Bottle 33 cl) A South Korean beer brewed under English license in the Czech Republic - that is indeed a trulu multinational affair. But Iím sorry to say, that in spite of all the effort this is a very, very sad beer. Main flavour is old mushrooms. The czechs should stick to their own quality lagers.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Had this one after a Kirin, and found it less flavoursome, but more crisp. Typical citrus hopping for a beer of this style, ie. nothing unexpected, along with being low on flavour with the malt (rice adjuncts are responsible for this I guess). A carbonated mouthfeel added to the crispness/dryness of the beer.
