Dacrza (494) - 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?...

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

A bright golden colored beer with great clarity and some carbonation fills my big German mug. On top I got a tall bright white head of foam that quickly faded to a thin wispy covering and as I drank it only made some light spotty lacing. In the nose there is very little to pick up. All I got was a light cracker like maltiness with a wisp of grassy hops. The flavor is simple, light and refreshing. I get a mild dry biscuity/cracker like malt base with a light kiss of hop bitterness. The finish is dry and a tad astringent. It has a light body with light carbonation and a thin watery feel.

Fles gekocht bij de Carrefour, helder goedgeel met een witte schuimkraag. In geur en smaak duidelijk pils tonen maar ook de rijst. Matige body.

HammerTroll (335) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 15, 2014
Clear golden color, minimal white head. Where is aroma? Maybe some rice. Some sweetness and some bitterness? Thin body, average carbonation. Passable.
(Lidl 0,5l bottle)

Translucent straw with foamy white head. Light body with high carbonation.

Aroma: mostly rice and corn with a touch of malt.

Taste: clean, with notes of corn and rice and malt.

Nothing off-putting, just boring.

Bottle from Sainsburys team valley. Pours light gold with thin white head. Definite metallic taste which can be quite overbearing but aftertaste is quite sweet and a little malty. Reasonable macro lager
