Very dry. I personally think itís more refreshing in the heat, as opposed to a regular pale lager. Nothing really special about this beer, other than the new monstrous can, and the fact that itís a little sharper on the finish. Iíd take this over another standard lager from another huge brewery.

Tasted like cheap American beer. So dry, I wasnít sure I even had a beer by the end. Skunky smell, extremly pale, no taste.

Standard Japanese mass-produced beer. Super Watery would have been a better name for the beer.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Almost neutral aroma--perhaps a hint of hop essence detectible...Color is a pale yellow-gold with light head---slight lace...Flavors are muted: light sweetness underneath a mildly bitter top-end...However, the sweetness does not taste as if born of malts, but rather out of a sack of C & H from the corner market. Carbonation is suitably light, lest all flavor be lost...Finish is quite clean, but some hop bitters linger pleasantly...Body is light but not as watery as many, but the overall character lacks definition...All one can say is: "There are worse."

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2003 urine tinted yellow apperance, frothy/marshmellowy bright as light white head, I might have detected a slight, a very slight hop bitterness in the aroma but that was all that the aroma could offer, fizzy...no flavor or least I couldn't come up with an english word to describe it, Metallic/sugary finish, pretty blah, although a dry beer is, as the description notes, supposed to have no aftertaste, this beer had a lingering 'dry/metallic' aftertatste, that, in fact, lasted longer than most

This was a case of "Japanese Resturant / Japanese Beer". I would probably never try this beer otherwise. Wholly unremarkable, but it doesnít interfer with food. Get the Sake instead.

Dry and crisp with a clean flavor. Not a whole lot going on here.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Your standard large breweried lager, totally ordinary. Nothing bad, nothing to make it stand out. Grainy aroma, metallic malt flavor.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Definitely not the same beer I had in Tokyo. Is this stuff made by Molson? It has a lingering aftertaste.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale and watery with that certain asian beer flavour that comes from brewing with rice. Unexciting to say the least.
