1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2006 Apr-05 Very light sweet low malt and hop aroma. Yellow pissy colour with low head and suds lacing. Low malt and low hop flavour. Stale light tangy hop finish. Overall it’s Euro-Asian trash. It bellows from the street, ’Handsome Young Man’. My mate Terry’s comment is, ’...quite cheap piss’.

Did anybody notice that it says on the side of the bottle brewed by anheiser-busch under strict supervision of kirin, this was horrible.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very dry beer. This is a decent Japanese lager, perfect to have with Asian food. Light but sharp flavor, dry aftertaste. Nothing exciting.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Very weak wheaty aroma, somewhat musty. Pours watery yellow. Thin head that lasts only a few seconds. Not much taste. Very watery. Slight bitterness in the back of the mouth. Very smooth and and easy drinking. Slight carbonation. Overall nothing special which leaves no reason to purchase this again.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a med. golden with a white fizzy head. Nose of grassy hops and corn. Sweet corn pretty much dominates the flavor to with a dab of diacetyl. Body is med. light. but the sweetness blocks much refreshing character. Finish is quick and dry with no bitterness.

Tried these one at a sushi restaurant. Not that bad (would choose n some sake wine next time though). Quite light, weak finish

Japanese Bud with more hops? That’s really all I got out of this one; fresh hops and a big dose of wateriness.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale yellow, foamy head, weak malt aroma, thin palate with very little flavour. When I finished, I found myself craving a beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
633ml brown bottle. Poured a pale pineapple yellow. Nicely formed creamy white head. Dryish, crisp malt aroma. Rather average flavour profile - lightly grainy, faint sweetness. Hard to pinpoint any hopping, finish is bland. Cleanly brewed, but stripped of any character.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A pale lager. Presumably rice or other adjuncts used (except in the commercial description...), which means not much in the malt flavouring. Yes, an easy to drink beer, with "no bitter aftertaste", but unfortunately, I like flavour and an aftertaste.
