Quite pale. Not much color, not much head, not much aroma, not much taste, not much body... not much.

If Mr. Myagi had anything to say about this, he would slit his wrists. Dry, with no malt or hops to speak of make this a kamikazee’s dream. Drink before your death, coward; this stuff sucks, and so do you.

Dry beers didn’t work for long in America and they don’t work much better in Japan. This beer lacks flavor, and aroma. It is way too light to be called a premium beer. The only thing good about it is the size of the bottle!

Weak, tastes of corn and rice and is over-carbonated. I strongly disliked this beer and don’t understand its comparatively high rating here compared to other pale lagers.

Drank this at about 4am at an apartment in Clifton, NJ after a night out carousing and meeting people, chatting, etc. Wonderful time for this unexpected rating to pop out of my friend Angelo’s fridge. He claims that he likes the "superior quality" of Japanese beers in general. Well its certainly dry, I’ll give you that. And has that nice rusty mouthfeel that shouts to you that you’re drinking in the crazy mountains of the United States. Taste problems abound, but it has a character in its language.

(Bottled, brewed in the Czech Republic by license) Paleish golden color with a small head. An aroma of rice and some grassy hops. Dryish, moderately malty flavor with sweet corn and bitter hops in the finish. Light-bodied, quite soft-carbonated and slicky palate. A semi-decent, dryish and rice-corny lager. Nothing memorable.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2005 Aroma is lightly malty with alcohol. It has an average head but has some clumps in it after it subsides, very little lacing. Golden amber color typical for Pale Lagers. Taste is a little weak and the only things that save this is the unique hops. Too bad there is not much of them to taste. Brief maltiness in the finish. Aftertaste is almost non existent but being a super dry beer that would be expected. Pretty so so.

Hmm..this is interesting..a "Japanese" lager brewed under licence in the Czech Republic. I suppose if you MUST brew under licence that would be one of the best places to do it..we’ll see!! Pale straw in colour, there’s not much in the way of a head, and there’s no bead of bubbles. Aroma is disappointing, little in the way of hops, and grain..slightly...thats about it really. Palate is medium bodied, with grain to the fore, lacking the smooth sweetness of malt(hence the "DRY" of the name I suppose) there’s no indication of hops on the palate, but they do claim on the back label, to have used them in the production of this definitely NOT premium lager. Finish is all but non-existent. All in all, a sadly disappointing glass.
