For being Japanese "Lite" beer, it is quite enjoyable with the traditional "Lite" beer yellow and a long lasting head. The beer tastes much better while in Japan. The one that you find in the states is made in California.

Transfer from BA review on 10-27-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a lighter golden color with a two finger white head. The head fades very fast to leave only a very light patchy lacing. Smell – The aroma is malty with notes of rice. With these aromas is a very light citrus hop aroma. Taste – The flavor begins with a light sweetness and a malty flavor. The flavors up front are a mixed with some notes of a mild rice flavor. As the taste advances some more sweetness of a more sweet light caramel and corn flavor comes to the tongue. These sweeter flavors then begin to die down again more toward the end, where some light hop flavors come in to the taste and with the drying out of the sweetness, they combined to leave a crisper taste on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is moderate in thickness and smoothness with a carbonation level that is a little above average. Rather appropriate for the style and makes it more refreshing. Overall – A fairly standard lager style for the most part. Quite easy to drink, non-offensive, but nothing with tons of flavor.

VincentKabel (193) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2014
This beer has a freshness that is normal for every beer made with rice. Not interesting at all. Slightly malty, almost no hops. Watery beer. But, as any other, refreshing on a hot day (if cooled down properly). Not interesting at all.

33cl bottle thanks to Lynn. Appearance - golden with a proportionate head. Nose - pale malt and just a hint of citrus. Taste - more lemon malt and some honey. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - a good solid lager.

On draft in Tokyo, Japan. Pours pale yellow with a creamy white head. Very drinkable and refreshing. Pairs well with sushi. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
