0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. - Very faint malty nose. The taste is bland and watery and almost nonexcisting. I suppose it would be ok as a mindless thirst quencher.... - then again so would water.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
1 liter can. Light sour grape aroma. Light golden yellow color with quick collapsing head. Flavor - barely detectable malt and hops. No bad flavors - hardly any flavor at all. A nonoffensive thirst quencher.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pours gold with a generous white head. Smell is of grapefruit and light malt. Taste is watery with a slightly bitter finish. Is there really a difference between this one and the Draft beer?

Bottle. Had this at Benihana’s, a japanese steakhouse. I thought it went well with the dinner, very dry and, well, it tasted like a pale lager, but I did enjoy it with my meal.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Thin, watery, yellow body with no head. Also, it has no taste. I like how they use "slake" in the commercial description. Sounds like something the devil would say.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very pale yellow with a good head that didn’t last. Malty and a bit metallic on the nose, typical pale lager palate with a very dry finish indeed (which I don’t mind from time to time-- with spicy food for example). Best of the Japanes pale lagers I think, but that’s not really saying much.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Apparently good all year round. No. Designed, not crafted - it’s a minimalistic aesthetic manifested in beer format - and it’s 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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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)
