Grainy, ricey, some hoppy notes. .
Light gold. Thin white head. Lotsa bubbles. .
very light flavor with very slight bitter start and hints of malt/sweetness in the short finish. .
light body, watery, prickly carbonation. .
Summer beer! Not something that I’d go out of my way for, but for the asian style, pretty typical

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2006 Well, maybe not the best Japanesse beer, and I think they are the best in Sakes. But although it has a good colour, the taste was not as good as you may think.

Picked up a bottle in Paris’ Chinatown (sic). Poured a pale yellow with some scum on top. Nose is a bit malty as istaste. Thin and watery. Refreshing but not much else. Not a bad Lager, but nothing interesting.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours golden in colour with a thin white head. Pale malt and some grassy hops in the nose. The taste is not bad for a pale lager, somewhat malty, and more bittering hops than most other pale lagers I’ve sampled but at the end of the day it’s still a pale lager.

Bottle. Deep golden with no head. Aroma is malty and mild. Taste is pretty malty for the style. I had this at a Japanese steakhouse, and it went just fine with the food.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Purchased can at Whole Foods’ refrigerated beer section and consumed within the 180 day freshness limit from bottling date. Small white head that rapidly diminished and with spare lacing. Clear golden yellow color with clean slight citrus aroma. Light-to-medium bodied with lively carbonation. Starts with slightly sweet malty flavor and finishes with a faint dry hop bitterness. I enjoyed this refreshing lager beer with a seafood dinner.

Bomber poured a clear piss yellow with a quickly dissapating white head. Aromas of light bread with a bit of corn.Palate was thin and watery. Flavors of... just a minute I think I’m starting to taste something, yes... its a bit of malt with a little sweetness.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled with some sushi at local Japanese resturant. Pale gold with only a little white head. Very light pale malt aroma, quite plain. Fairly calm light malt flavor, a little bit of sweetness is present and there is decent carbonation activity. Clean finish, but nothing fabulous.
