Eructoblaster (2948) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2004
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.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JUN 1, 2004
very pale yellow. Head fades quickly. Almost no aroma. Fairly generic mega-lager flavor. Not bad at all, but nothing to recommend it.

beastdog75 (362) - Brick, New Jersey, USA - MAY 26, 2004
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.

Pailhead (4572) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAY 21, 2004
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.

OD40oz (773) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - MAY 17, 2004
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.

bu11zeye (11925) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 11, 2004
(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.

madquacker (1026) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2004
Ice cream cone head. Good carbonation. Soapiness predominates but still fresh and dry. Bland but very drinkable.

Bassy15 (60) - Cullowhee, North Carolina, USA - APR 26, 2004
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.

whiterabbit (28) - AUSTRALIA - APR 18, 2004
Clear & crisp with no nasty after taste, compliments spicey food extremely well, such as Thai or Malaysian.

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - APR 18, 2004
Clear gold color with a quickly dissipating medium white head. Sweet malt and corn aroma. Light malt and corn flavors. Thin, watery feel with a crisp dry finish. No yucky aftertaste. Not bad.
