2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
From bottle poured yellow with very little head. Nose of rice. Flavor is very mild and there is a touch of hops. Very bland.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
