2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a pale straw and overcarbonated body typical from the asian lagers. Head is bubbly and thick but do not resist to the first sip. Light malty aroma with light grassy hints. Taste is OK. It is well balanced, lightly hoppy and the final is relatively long and bitter. A step above Sapporo Premium.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
very pale yellow. Head fades quickly. Almost no aroma. Fairly generic mega-lager flavor. Not bad at all, but nothing to recommend it.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Has a very generic flavor, with some graininess, fruitiness and a cardboard-like dryness. Not really bitter at all. I suppose it could be considered crisp and easy to drink, but I can’t imagine myself having too many of these.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Virtually no aroma. Only thing I can really pick up is a slight skunky aroma, but when I say slight I mean slight. Pours a transparent pale yellow with a small white head that disappears almost instantly. Somewhat malty taste with a slight bitter finish. That is being generous though because there really is about as much taste as there is smell. Almost none. Watery mouthfeel and not much aftertaste. Very boring beer. The Bud/Bud Light crowd would think this is a good beer. I don’t.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2009 I tried this at a local bar that has numerous different kinds of beers. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be but I wouldn’t go out of my way to drink it again.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle) Pours a pale golden color with a thick foamy head. Beer was drinkable, but had no character and was kind of boring to drink.

Ice cream cone head. Good carbonation. Soapiness predominates but still fresh and dry. Bland but very drinkable.

It is like japan's Michelob, it had no harsh aftertaste. It looks a pale gold, with a dirty white head. Not too bad first japanesse beer i ever had.

Clear & crisp with no nasty after taste, compliments spicey food extremely well, such as Thai or Malaysian.
