Drunk out of bottle, not much going on here, some skunky flavours of cardboard and sweet corn.

Japanís number one beer should have alarm bells ringing. If you think Heineken or Budweiser are Number one beers in their countries of origin then this is for you. Smells lager, tastes lager. Pours down the sink in a good downward fashion.

mariuspoenari (1102) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2016
Can from the local sushi place. Pale yellow with a white head. Generic lager, bitter-sweet, with notes of malted barley, corn and metal.

Nurmis (220) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 21, 2016
330ml bottle at home. Pours clear golden with small white head. Aroma of bready malts. Really dry like the name suggest, reminds me of many czech pilsners in that regard. The carbonation is not there though, more like soft to average.

Headbanger (3748) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 5, 2016
33.8oz can 5/5/16 (Jewel-Osco Clearance Rack)-Pours a clear golden with a big white head that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma of sweetness and dough. Taste of corn sweetness, and slight hops. This light bodied brew is just another pale lager.

elbernays (1140) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 5, 2016
Pint in restaurant. Pours light gold colour. Straw, dried banana, bread, dough on nose. Slight fruit, biscuit sweet flavour with light watery finish. Highly carbonated.

Straw color. Very mild aroma with some light malts and noticeable hops. Balance between biscuit malt sweetness, acidity, and bitterness. Has more flavor than most pale lagers, but ultimately another boring brew.

ZodiacM (657) - NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2016
Poured from the bottle, light yellow beer. a bit tasteless in the mouth. Not very good, but fresh while enjoying some food.

lownote (462) - USA - APR 10, 2016
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
