If i I had tried this beer with my eyes closed, I would probably have said that it was San Pellegrino. Why bother?

Pours a clear, medium-light yellow with a bubbly white, quickly dissipating head. Rather devoid of aroma on the nose, although some cereal and yeast notes are apparent. Medium carbonation; somewhat watery. A few sweet malts lead through to light citrus flavours towards the end, with a very dry conclusion. Reminds me of Canadian beer from the ’80s. But it’s drinkable.

Pours golden thin head dissapers fast. Aroma of malt and grains almost metalic? Taste is clean crisp and dry with bittersweet balance. Goes down fine.

Not much to look at appearance wise, this pours similar to a cheaper lager. The taste completely makes up for this, with a cool, crisp finish.

Muggus69 (1108) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 23, 2014
OLD NOTES OCT 9, 2003 Quite a refreshing beer. Reminds me of San Miguel, but dryer. Not bad, very drinkable for sure, like most Asian beers.

This tastes like a 4+ beer when you drink it with a show at a teppinyaki place.

Brentv (229) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 20, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 Served in a glass in Tokyo. Pour is clear yellow with slight white head. Aromas of grains and some light frutiness. Taste is grains, slightly sweet. Thin mouthfeel. Full carbonation. Very easy to drink and refreshing, but without much character.

Not terrible. Pretty boring lager, has a sharp dry delivery as described. A little different than most lagers, but not awesome.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein goldgelbes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht malzig, süß, getreidig. Geschmack leicht malzig getreidig.

Reimer96 (1061) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 11, 2014
Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of rice, corn and dme with some light floral notes. Taste is much of the same with a dry finish. Crisp and clean like the style should be. One of the better macros but still much of the same.
