3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home, I find it to be a great crisp (not dry as advertised) summer day beer. It has become one of my favorites for regular consumption. It is said to be the 4th best selling beer in the world, so I would definately call this a Macro-brew even though it’s not carried most places around here.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
[bottle from ichiban cafe] pale yellow colour with a small head. smells of very little, has that pale lager aroma a little dry in the finish, certainly not "super dry".

21.4 oz bottle. slight rice aroma. pretty much nothing special. rahter average taste. is very smooth but not thin or watery so i liked that feature. Would be a good beer to drink while watching the movie gettysburg from some reason.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Not an inspiring appearance: pale and lacking a decent head. By no means an unattractive aroma, but though the taste began as pleasantly grassy, the flavours of decaying grasscuttings began to predominate. The final impression was thin, watery and lacking the promised bitterness.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured from a cool little 135ml can. Clear golden colored, fizzy white head. Weak hoppy aroma, same flavor with some maizy hints. Drinkable, but uninteresting, as expected! Crispy.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle. "the beer for all seasons" - we shall see. Poured a clear, bubbly, bright pale yellow - huge white, creamy head, draught-like lacing on glass. Smells terrible - sour and composty, stewed mushrooms, wet newspaper, soggy straw, bit of artificial sweetener over the top. Taste is strong metals clanging against minerals and chemicals - a bit of big-brew maltiness and a tease of hops and grains, and still that sweetness at the edge of perception - like overripe fruit, almost. Light and somewhat chalky/dusty on the palate, slips away quicker than thought, leaves a dusty, vaguely sweet and brackish after-echo. Not really awful, overall, but I won’t touch it again.

I usually get this at Japanese restaurants, simply because I think its the best Japanese beer that you can find at most sushi places. Dry, yet crisp and refreshing. A nice lager.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Vague hoppy aroma. Regular looking pale lager with some lacings. Flavor is one of the anonymous ones ever. I could never pick this out in a blind tasting.
