not that bad. pretty much taste neutral, but that can be a good thing. Definalty had the "dry" flavor, but none of the aftertaste that dooms it's american cousins.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2004
Not completely bad. Good malt presence, a bit of actual stickiness, and something that seems like a noble hop or two. Crisp, clean, and not rancid and full of adjuncts.

3fourths (8020) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 29, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2013 Pale yellow. Aroma of cigarette smoke, corn, lemons and grass. Fizzy and light, mild flavors of grains and fuel. Sweet malt finish.

This is an expensive beer for people that either just enjoy curious slogans printed on what they are reading or wish to have some kind of exotic appeal to 18 yr olds doing japanese for the HSC.

I am going to claim I drank it for the rating only, it was my 100th and I wanted something to giggle at.

Light straw in color with a small white head. Aroma of faint hops. Flavor is mildly bitter,dry and clean.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - MAR 19, 2004
Pours a light gold color with a medium quickly dimishing head. Aroma is light in all regards. Flavors are of light malt, light hops and a slightly metallic taste. Body is about the same as water. Not too bad.

piscator34 (1965) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 19, 2004
Bland, but not horrible. Gold (which is darker than I thought it would be). Practically no aroma to speak of. A bit of hops, with a clean finish. Ok with some foods, but not great on its own.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 15, 2004
Bottle. Ack. Awful. Dull, flavorless macro taste, with a huge amount of carbonation. Reminds me quite a bit of soda water, sort of a mineralesque taste. Not much going on, clear yellow, big white head, little aroma. Couldnt finish.

Mephistefales (47) - USA - MAR 13, 2004
Very carbonated. Not bursting with flavor -- it is listed as super dry, after all). Despite the above, it is quite refreshing. A very interesting beer.

A very bland tasting beer. Kind of skunky, bitter also. A weak aroma and basically everything else.
