Bottle. Pours a yellow with a thin white bubbly head. Served a bit too cold for any real aroma to develop, but what was there was some kind of dusty hop with some kind of dead grassy hints. Mouth is virtually non-existent, hoppy and slightly watery, finishing to a dead palate, no show on that front really, a bit bitter, but not really "super dry". Below average, but good in the restaurant I was at when I didn’t want something obtrusive

Clear golden yellow body, no head with slight lace. Corn, grass and hops to the nose. Metallic flavor permeates all aspects. Super dry finish indeed. Good beer, but nothing special.

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.

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.

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.

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 (504) - 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.
