(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..weíll see!! Pale straw in colour, thereís not much in the way of a head, and thereís 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) thereís 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.

Corn aroma. Light golden color, very small head. Flavor is grainy and corny, unpleasant sourly, light bitter, light fry finish. Another one please.

BpaiHorngnam (14) - THAILAND - MAR 6, 2005
Poured from a large bottle, the golden brew had a mild and not unpleasant taste. I tasted a hint of rice, but I had just eaten rice so that might have played a factor. Fortunately, I did not detect the rotted metallic vegetable matter on a stick others experienced, but I think I was drinking from a fresher batch. Itís not great, but itís a lot better than most of the refuse-based brews around these parts.

oh6gdx (22101) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 19, 2005
Bottled. Pale golden colour, not much of a head. Aroma consists of maize and hops and is pretty bitter. Flavour is made of maize and hints of rice with a bit bitter finish. Dries your mouth. All in all a boring beer.

Light yellow coloring with a thin white head. Aroma of corn and cooked rice. The taste has some corn and dry rice. The flavor is almost like a bad malt liquor. Awful.

nice light flavored beer with a crisp finish. not overly impressed, but i would order again. slight golden colour with a moderate carbonation. not to much of a malt or hop flavor. similar to an anh-bush type beer, but better. when in rome (japaneese steak house) do like the romans do. drink japaneese!

jerohen (2061) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2005
Clear yellow coloured, dying head. Weak grainy nose. Grainy and malty flavour, bit bitter, perhaps even some apple (or am i just drunk?). More sweet in the end. Watery mouthfeel. Not great, but iíve certainly had worse.
