It is what it is, I suppose. Almost no aftertaste and therefore quite refreshing. Goes well with Japanese food as a palate cleanser. Try some ice cold Sake, though. You might be surprised.

T2Tool (352) - Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2007
Pale lager which tasted about like I expected. Yellow color, which did not have a lot of taste to it but nothing to turn you off from it. Average beer.

It is fresh, crisp, and clear, and a little bit dry (not super dry) but we all know the Japanese are pretty big fans of hyperbole. This is about a million times better than Anheuser World Select.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JAN 30, 2007
This is totally drinkable and unappalling. I was expecting a nasty skunkiness and I was pleased that I found absolutely none. Always a good thing in pale lager land. Lightly sweet with an almost citrus lightly bitter bite in the back. Choose this over crap like Heineken.

jacobwennbom (357) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 30, 2007
Pretty tasteless in all respects there are. Pale yellow with a head that doesn’t last. Bready with a little bitterness. Kind of carbonated. Fresh I guess is the best thing you can say about this one.

imdownthepub (13070) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2007
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml. Yellow gold with fizzed white head. Extra marks for not being ovecarbonated, this is a dry, thinnish but with the benefits of being malty with no adjuncts, one of the better pale lagers. Beats the rice brewers hands down.

DarkMagus (501) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 26, 2007
Convenient 135ml can. Monstrous foamy artificially-induced head. Pale yellow color. The aroma is that of a typical pale lager. Reminds me of being a kid and catching a whiff of whatever my grandfather was drinking. Flavors are pale lager-ish: corn, rice, a bit of hops. Very light and watery body. The finish was, in fact, quite dry. Though not in the usual hoppy/astringent sense... more of a watery, nothing-to-it kind of sense. Easy to chug and/or funnel.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2007
Bottle. Pale yellow color, minimal head ,watery and light beer. Very very average lager.

hayduke (4755) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 19, 2007
From bottle poured yellow with very little head. Nose of rice. Flavor is very mild and there is a touch of hops. Very bland.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2007
] Pours clear light gold, quite effervescent. A half inch of acid white head gives way to just a few persistant bubbles here and there. A little bready in the aroma, but more like a store-bought white bread than a hearty homemade wheat. The taste is pretty mild but still flavorful with a little sweet and bready malt and a hint of floral hops. The finish is very dry, which the fizzy carbonation compliments quite well. It tasted very fresh, clean, and pure - no adjunct flavors whatsoever. Definately a walk on the mild side.
