Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Aroma syrupy, corny, actually quite bourboney. Clear golden colour, inferior instantly disappearing head. Tastes like bourbon diluted 1:8 with water. Yeah, that is probably it. Make your own opinion.

Well at least it is real beer compared to Happoshu. Typical mass produced lager with no detectable aroma. Rice and slight grain taste present. Astringently dry finish. The worst of the big Japanaese brewers in my opinion.

Japonské pivo vyrobené v Prahe. Kyslastá vôňa, pekná farba aj pena. V zložení aj ryža a kukurica. Chuť zvláštna, kyslastá, čakal som horšiu. Dá sa to vypiť, ale raz bohate stačilo.

MrBlueSky93 (409) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle from Tesco. Pours Golden, very clear, single finger white head. Aroma of grains, malts. Taste of light malts, then some breadiness, graininess, touch of grass, and some light fruits. A bit boring

Clear, pale golden. Airy white head. Light, grainy aroma. Malty, slightly bready flavour with late citrus-like bitterness. Rather thin mouthfeel.

ordybill (539) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Poured from a 750ML bottle into a beer mug. A common Japanese brew that does not fair well in the States. Has a pretty good look (pale yellow) but the smell and taste are average. Not the best Japanese beer out there.

b3shine (6382) - Indiana, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Bomber to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks decent; a completely transparent gold with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of mild bitterness and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells, but skunkier, with a medium light-bodied mouthfeel. Some corn and rice. Drinkable, but not enjoyable.

C’est pas la bičre du sičcle, c’est sur mais elle fait ce qu’on lui demande, apporter une note de fraicheur. Pas de complexité, une amertume a peine marquée. A boire frais quand il fait chaud, ou devant un match avec une pizza.

Rammer (331) - Moscow, RUSSIA - FEB 15, 2015
Very bad lager. Not aroma, and uninteresting lager flavor. Little bitter, bad aftertaste

Bottle in a Japanese restaurant, Loughborough. Lightly sparkling golden beer with a head that fades to nothing in seconds. The taste is grain and mild citrus. Fairly bad.
