Pours a clear golden color, topped with a big frothy white head that vanishes soon. Malty aroma with some grainy notes in there. Taste starts lightly sweet, a bit grassy in the body with mild bitterness. Not unpleasant, drinkable when ice cold, but nothing spectacular. Decent macro lager.

Saeglopur (1185) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 16, 2015
330 ml bottle brought from Asia by a friend.
Golden, clear body, with a big, frothy, white head.
Aroma of grass, flowers, bread, sweet fruits, some honey.
Taste is quite thin, but not unpleasant, with about the same aromas.
Light mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes moderate bitter, quite dry, also sweet, a bit fruity.

Not as bad as expected. Actually clean and fresh, with some interesting sweet, fruity notes. Overall too light, but a nice thirst quencher and one of the better pale lagers Iíve had.

I canít remember if this beer has taste. Itís very gassy indeed. I burp and fart a lot after drinking this beer. Donít consume this beer in confined area. Not much flavour. Just cold and gassy. Light colour, no body, gassy and quite big head almost like a volcano.

Japanese beers often have a dry aftertaste, and this has in particular. It smells not of much, have a reasonable foam and tastes reasonable. The taste has a little hop, a little flower is also in this dry aftertaste. Actually it has nothing special to offer.

Pale gold, slight aroma with a bit of hops. Taste is fairly clean, boring mouth feel, grainy, a bit sweet. Not terrible.

Drank from a bottle. Very light taste in the tradition of your typical macro lager. Nothing memorable.

Probably one of the best commercial pale lager around. Nice golden pour, malty aroma, bitter dry taste, quite decent above average for this type of product.

Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a glass. Clear light golden with small white head. Aroma is nice light malt, light body, low carbonation, and some lacing. Taste is light malt, rice, some corn, and slightly dry finish.

From a liter can. Pours a straw with decent carbonation and lacy head. Tinny nose. Quite bitter and skunky. Akin to a cheap beer you drink in college.
