1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Hoppy but Budweiser-esque nose, light golden hue with no head, traces hops but watery, virtually no body whatsoever, unpleasant drainpour aftertaste

Clean smooth beer that goes quite well with oriental cuisine. Light color with very little head to it.

Not very characterful at all; paradoxically I'd like it better if it had just one flaw, some sort of idiosyncracy to distinguish it from other dry lagers.

Crisp, clean taste. Light to medium body. Nice light golden color. Great with asian food of course

Did not enjoy!!! Still, than most Asian beers. I had the Thai version, which may have made a difference.

A little more hops than I expected. Clear clean quickly thinning head. Washed down the chinese food rather well.

this is a damn decent tasting beer. i prefer the draft version to anything else, but out of the can or bottle is still not too bad. this is definetly on my top three maybe top two of japanese beers, but i also have some others in mind. defineltly goes well with food, but is still enjoyable by itself.

Negligible aroma, very light colour. No malt taste but slight bitterness. Light flavour & yes it is dry like club soda. May go well with spicy food. At least I can chalk up another country.

This beer is kind of yummy. From the glass it looks just like any other beer in its class, nothing special there and then you take a sip and it is almost as all the saliva in your mouth is gone, now that is a dry delivery. as the description say, a very crisp clean taste.

Pale yellow, pretty stable head, dry flavor with some acidity. Lively but fine carbonation. Refreshing.
