DuffMan (7622) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 23, 2005
Very pale yellow with a good head that didnít last. Malty and a bit metallic on the nose, typical pale lager palate with a very dry finish indeed (which I donít mind from time to time-- with spicy food for example). Best of the Japanes pale lagers I think, but thatís not really saying much.

jefcon (1470) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUN 18, 2005
One of the lightest beers out there in color. Aromas are earthy and grassy. Taste is dry, yes, but at the expense of flavor. Very macro-tasting.

DiscoForever (71) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 18, 2005
Apparently good all year round. No. Designed, not crafted - itís a minimalistic aesthetic manifested in beer format - and itís bad. Crisp but hard, over carbonated, with all the character squeezed out. Try with sushi, light salad or as a palate cleanser if you must drink it at all. The nicely designed labelling may attract the image conscious.

Damage (77) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2005
Pours a pale, straw colour and is VERY carbonated with a grassy smell and sweet, hoppy flavour with a dry finish. My first Japanese beer. (500ml can)

shadey (1977) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Bottle at Korean resturant. Not bad at all. Sweet flavor that was a little different than I am used to from a pale lager. I actually liked it.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JUN 3, 2005
Golden color with film for head. Super-dry your not kidding, almost no aroma or flavor whatsoever. A little skunk with some spiciness. Sorry canít say much else.

GregClow (2957) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2005
Bottle at a sushi reataurant. Pale yellow with a puffy white head that quickly disappears. Hyperactive carbonation that made it look more like ginger ale than a beer. Mild aroma, a bit of malt and some canned veggie notes. Very little flavour. Went OK with my sushi as I didnít really want anything with a lot of flavour to get in the way of the taste of the fish - but I couldíve gotten the same effect with a bottle of mineral water...

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) A South Korean beer brewed under English license in the Czech Republic - that is indeed a trulu multinational affair. But Iím sorry to say, that in spite of all the effort this is a very, very sad beer. Main flavour is old mushrooms. The czechs should stick to their own quality lagers.

Mullo (102) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 17, 2005
Had this one after a Kirin, and found it less flavoursome, but more crisp. Typical citrus hopping for a beer of this style, ie. nothing unexpected, along with being low on flavour with the malt (rice adjuncts are responsible for this I guess). A carbonated mouthfeel added to the crispness/dryness of the beer.

punkpie (19) - Covina, California, USA - MAY 14, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2005 Pours a urine sample yellow... kinda stinky... very dry, but easy drinking... not much flavor... though prolly good with sushi... I was not impressed.
