On tap at local sushi bar. Pours out a light pale yellow with a nice head. Aromas of grains corn malts and rice. Tastes follows the aromas and is fairly indistinct. I love this type of beer with hamachi spicy tuna and salmon. Finishes crisp and dry with a slight sweetness to offset the soy and wasabi. .

Bottle at Yamatoya restaurant in hod hasharon. Clear gold with white head. Faint malty aroma, slightly oxidized. Cardboard sweetness in the mouth and concentrated apple juice. Light body, very carbonated, fruity aftertaste and not really dry...

From a 22 oz bottle. Clean, crisp, fairly unremarkable but inoffensive pale lager. Somewhat distinct rice flavor. Doesn’t get as bad as Sapporo does when it gets hot. Meh.

Had this at a Asian restaurant a while back. Very sweet/skunky brew with typical pale lager traits. Works well with stir fry however.

330ml bottle into schooner glass. Brewed in China. Slight sweet malt nose. Yellow, small head disappears to thin film. Tastes a little malty, a little sweet. Watery abrupt biscuit aftertaste. Inoffensive.

On tap at kinfolk 90, Brooklyn. Pale golden color really nice head and lacing for a pale lager. Aroma is generic adjust lager. Rice, corn, slight maltiness. Flavor is crisp, sweet, caramel malt flavor. Actually pretty nice flavor. Definitely more dry than other pale lagers. Slight tinny taste as well. Not amazing but a good pale lager. Actually pretty easy enjoyable.

Crystal clear golden body with a glistening snow colored head that lingers around 2-3 fingers high for quite a long time. Dry rice like aroma. Faint sweetness but kind of has a wet cardboard taste. Dry finish without any unpleasantness.

Bottled at sushi boat. Light body. Can't really taste the alcohol. Nose is of malt, grains, and yeast, taste is very the same. Taste also fades very fast. Overall, not a fan.
