Dacrza (571) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Date tasted: July 21, 2013 ... Glassware: Baltika stange... Occasion: looking forward to rest after a fun trip to LBI--and a new mattress upstairs....Appearance: clear golden body with slim bubbles; head flourishes and quickly dissipates, leaves spongelike, wide gaps between foamy nooks and crannies... Aroma: funky corn adjuncts plague the nostrils; slight suggestion of floral hops, but they are beaten back by macro malt... Palate: clean, slightly irregular finish with some warmth at its end; rather watery with little character...Taste: light bitterness from the malt adjunct makes this a rather bland mouth rinser; exhibits little of its promised "richness"... Overall: at $1.99 for a 38-ounce can, one could argue this beer actually gives the drinker his money’s worth... unfortunately, this beer didn’t have to come from Japan to deliver its pedestrian malty, bitterly bland aftertaste...at least there was a lot of it?...

330ml can. B&M. Brewed in the Czech Republic, it says. Clear gold. Thin, sticky, white head. Unbelievably lacking in anything along the lines of aroma or taste. There is very little to say. So I wont.

Why is this popular? I don’t recall seeing rotten eggs on the label, but this was the dominant aroma. The taste was generic, possibly beer or possibly not

HIGHB4LL (773) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 22, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Wilbur’s. Appearance: 2 fingers white head, light lacing, golden color, clear, Aroma: wheat, rice, pilsner hops, cardboard. Palate: light body, average carbonation, light bitter finish, slight sparkling texture. Taste: sweet but subtle wheat notes into a slightly skunky pilsner hops bitterness. Overall, drinkable, but nothing else can really be said.

From a 12 oz bottle, not the classic 22 unfortunately. Highly carbonated, yellow color and extremely thin. The aroma can only be described as beer. No head to speak of. Taste wise, this is not bad like every one else claims. It’s non descript. In a not bad way.

33cl bottle@Oslo Airport sushi. A very uneventful experience but accompanied my sushi quite, well. Does not distinguish itself in any way. Nice color, quite carbonated, good white head but not much aroma. OK taste without any off notes or too much sweetness and a pleasant bitterness in the little aftertaste there was. Refreshing enough, but as a beer experience to remember ....forget it.

Gurthnar (2479) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 24, 2015
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.

willisread (398) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2015
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.

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
