Sobchak (131) - Skagen, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2005
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.

shrubber85 (9019) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 16, 2005
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.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 6, 2005
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?

mustangjoe (183) - redondo beach, California, USA - JUL 5, 2005
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.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 5, 2005
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.

Tmoney99 (11915) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2005
Bottle 12 oz. Clear light amber with medium white head that diminished quickly. Small malty aroma. Light body with little texture. Small flavor with little finish. Below average brew.

DuffMan (7999) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 23, 2005
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.

jefcon (1505) - 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 - 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.

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)
