1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Extremely pale yellow, small quickly fading white head. Astringent wan grains and hints of alcohol in the aroma. Dilute astringent grains in the flavour taste like they are trying to make too much beer from too little malt. Thin watery palate.

This is pretty good stuff! A little light, but very refreshing. There a lot of good flavors and qualities. An expiration date helps with a hard to find import like this. Beer snobs stay away ... this is an import lager that hasnít been scooped up by the yuppies ... yet. Try it, itís certainly more interesting than a budweiser. This is beach beer without a doubt.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2006 Bottle (650ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc, mds and tupalev, my bottle. I thought tupalev was going to punch me - I told everyone I ordered this from Liquorama, and when I added up how much is cost ($3 + $3.50 shipping + 28% duty - all in US funds) the lead-pipe reality of my ratings-whoredom came crashing down - I spent like $10 to drink an ounce of somthing I knew was swill for a rating - sure, itís a new country, but still. I didnít notice any of the other 5 guys refuse to drink theirs, though ... Anyway. Very pale clear yellow, small quick-fleeing whitish head. Vegetal sour grain aroma, cheap sugar, sort of cowpat-ish. Harsh chemical taste, nasty, gets worse on warming. Itís watery, just slick enough to be truly unpleasant on the tongue - ugh ugh ugh. *TICK*

Should preferably be consumed in French Polynesia. The tap version (Pression) has more balls than can and bottle.
Have you noticed that the mirror of HINANO is ONANIH :-)

I Love This Beer
We need it in TN.
I found this beer while in Tahiti, and loved it. To bad it cost so much to have it sent to Tn.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
From 33cL Bottle. Pours a very light, off yellow color with a tall soapy white head. Aroma reminds me of a mixture of grass, corn starch, and water. Slightly sweet smell with a slight whiff of hops. Mouthfeel is light and sparkling, typical for a pale lager. Grainy, corny flavors with a pleasant kiss of grassy hops for the finish.
