Dacrza (774) - 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 moneyís worth... unfortunately, this beer didnít have to come from Japan to deliver its pedestrian malty, bitterly bland aftertaste...at least there was a lot of it?...

Pours gold with a small white head. Aroma is corn, grass and light citrus. Taste is light bitters with sweetness. Light bodied, dry finish.

Poured from the bottle, light yellow beer. a bit tasteless in the mouth. Not very good, but fresh while enjoying some food.

This is way less offensive than I was expecting. Kind of a yeasty sweet aroma. Pours super clear, gold, with a big white head. Taste is a little sweet, get a little bit of citrus flavor. Itís totally fine.

Not a very good beer at all. Very few redeaming qualities for this beer. It looks like a good beer and it has an ok palate. Check out my video review here. https://youtu.be/yVnYcWQPVWA

Ryzowy lager. Czyste piwo. Kto pil, ten wie. A kto nie pil, niech nie pije.

GioPiso (20) - ITALY - MAR 26, 2016
Only had it because of limited choice in Japanese restaurant. Nothing but a low-level lager Iím afraid: very little aroma and taste, annoying carbonation, leaves you very unsatisfied. Avoid as much as possible.

Bottled at Omi. Odd sweet taste. Clear yellow appearance. Small white head. Okay I guess.

Teran (254) - Belgrade, SERBIA - MAR 24, 2016
One from well know lager beers from Japan. This one is also much better then most of EU and American lager beers. Pretty much neutral, but tasty and with some discreet qualities. Good for any food.

mintzmeet (418) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 23, 2016
Smells like Coors light. Nice in a frosted glass, no head. Nice dryness. Great bite to it. Not bitter, almost sweet? "The beer for all seasons"
