Top selling beer in Japan and it is good! Nice yellow colour with a nice lasting head. Mild aroma of malt. Dry taste yes, with a touch of malt. crisp aftertaste. Quite weak tasting beer actually but so refreshing.

This beer is very dry. VERY, VERY dry. It finishes very clean and tastes extremely good with Japanese food in general, especially dishes flavored with ginger because it mixes with the flavor of the beer.

It sure is dry. Not bad ... quite good with food. I recommend the can as it keeps a bit better. The bottle I tasted was a bit "worn out." The flavors weren’t as up front. NIce aftertaste.

Used to drink this all the time in hawaii. Has a wine/citrus aroma. Pours out with a large foam head. Taste of slight wine and malts. Not too bad.

Bottle. It’s certainly dry, I’ll give it that. But a bit of flavour wouldn’t go astray though. Bit like ginger ale without the ginger.

Despite the bad reviews, I quite like this little Japanese beer. Others mention that it does, or does not go with sushi. Who cares what goes with sushi? Sushi is a disgusting creation only eaten by trendy, gormless city posers for effect! What matters is what the beer tastes like and this is a good little refreshing lager - not much taste I concur, but slips down a treat on a summer day and it’s brewed by Shepherd Neame, which is always a bonus!

Bottle 45F Lager. Smells of rice nothing special at all no hops to speak of. Very clear maybe a touch darker than most pale lagers. Finishes dry and not so bad, plenty of metallic taste, Decent carbonation and mouthfeel. If it were not for the taste and mouthfeel this would be a drain pour, but really its not too bad.

Thank to MJuarez. Can: Pours a huge foamy white head, strong aroma and taste of what must be rice; grainy. Really super dry. Finish is chemical, iron-like.
