1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Clear piss water...a mild citrus aroma...very few bubbles in the glass. Tastes like a nasty domestic...so essentially tasteless.

Clear golden yellow. Bubbly with no head.
Smells like alcohol. Taste like a canned domestic beer. Not much flavor.

A crisp dry lager. and a must drink when feeding on sushi. The bottle says "Honourable to your tongue. Treat your tongue with the utmost respect."

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale gold. Very carbonated, mildly bitter. Pale malts and floral hops make this refreshing, but almost tasteless.

It was really light and didn't have much taste to it. There was a little hops flavor to it. An average light beer.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2004 (Bottle) I d past this in the store a thousand times and thought I had rated it, obviously not so I bought a bottle. Pours a large, frothy, quick dissipating white head and a light gold body. Weak hop nose, though slightly more flavour of hops. Watery and boring.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2003 Essentially odorless, smells like any light American beer but this is Japaneese so it's more fun. Pretty thick head and surprisingly good lacing with a nice pale golden color (the beer not the lacing). Light bodied with low carbonation. Drinks as smooth as water which is mostly what it tastes like. Sort of a sweet-sour-flavor and maybe a touch of hops are also noticable. No finish. Lacks any sort of aftertaste.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Hoppy but Budweiser-esque nose, light golden hue with no head, traces hops but watery, virtually no body whatsoever, unpleasant drainpour aftertaste

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clean smooth beer that goes quite well with oriental cuisine. Light color with very little head to it.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Not very characterful at all; paradoxically I'd like it better if it had just one flaw, some sort of idiosyncracy to distinguish it from other dry lagers.
