No hop taste, no real after taste. Light and refreshing but so is water. Gets a 10 overall because it does go well with light fare.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled. Light and crisp, little to say. Escaping and little long-lasting aroma. Grainy, sweet.

Better than most domestics, but still not good enough to try again. The only things that suck out in my mind were the carbonation and the ugly yellow colour. I honestly donít have much more to say than that.

high carbonation, and balanced maltiness. gold in colour, with rice and slight citrus tastse attacking the tongue right off the start. finishes crisp and clean. Very refreshing and great with any japanese food (go figure) For a macro brew, this one tops my charts!

Wow, a "schmiddy" of this at the Cargo bar in celebration of some guyís Australian citizenship cost 8 bucks. WELCOME DOWN UNDER SON!!! This stuff is terrible without being the absolute pits. Tastes like itís based on rice malt: very thin and watery...

SDalkoholic (2156) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 28, 2004
A fools gold color and thin soft fluff head. The aroma will give me a headache if i sniff it anymore. It reminds me of that smell of a carpet after a party and beer bottles and cups laying around everywhere. Flavor has some corn with grass and light malt aftertaste. Iíll admit i do drink this more than i thought cuz its the only thing good at sushi restaurants.

Pale golden color, with thin white head. Weak skunky aroma of an american lager. Flavor is better though; corny and weak, but dry and crisp. A refreshing beer, and one that Iíd choose over the domestic lites.

Golden color, light weak aroma, light malty taste, light watery body, light dry finish.

Had this one in the bottle, and from what I could tell this was like a classic american light with a bit more flavor. The aroma was pretty bland and devoid of anything memorable. This was an okay beer I guess, though not one that I really think will ever grace my beer shelf again.

10.17.04 Quart can. Pale yellow pour; massive, craterous head. Some light hops in aroma, mostly boring lager smells. The flavor and palate are practically non-existant featuring only some damp tissue tastes...but the finish is like a whirlpool that sucks any hint of flavor or wetness down the drain. Dry indeed. Flavorless and dry, Iíll give it a couple bonus points for living up to its promise -- but what a strange style. I couldíve done without this one.
