Golden color with minimal white head. Simple aroma and flavor. Mostly malty. Pretty decent.

24 oz. can, with the A-B "born on" date of 6 July 05. Well, what did I expect. Not much, but letís see: Canít deny it looks nice enough. Straw colored body under a fluffy head that seems to have a little too much stabilizer. Some malt, but just a touch of soapiness. Just has that same canned beer flavor of any other Bud. "No bitter aftertaste" generally means no hops, and thatís just what I get. Itís stereotypical of me to think there rice adjunct in this, but frankly, that would make it no different than any Bud, and thatís pretty much how it tastes, minues the trace of beechwood.

(bottle at a restaurant; not even from Japan - made in LA by A-B) Pale lager gold with rapidly fading head and almost no aroma. Mild malt taste. Not bad, but just a boring lager.

UPDATED: MAY 10, 2009 Iím definitely a Kirin lover. The finish is very bitter and strong, but feeling your mouth invaded with this great cereal taste is a good experience

Good golden color. But no head and a very thin body, which i didnt expect. The taste is bland, and a little too bitter for me.

Pours pale yellow with almost no nose, but good bubbly white head and some lacing. The flavor is non-existent until you get towards the end of the palate, when some sour malt comes through. Bleh.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - AUG 12, 2005
So Iím sitting there drinking this and complaining. Saying how it tastes like a Budweiser but a little better. Then Iím reading the bottle and itís saying how itís monitered by the A-B brewmaster or something. Figures. No hops here really, some malt but basically another boring lager. Not offensive, less than enjoyable.

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 itís Euro-Asian trash. It bellows from the street, íHandsome Young Maní. My mate Terryís comment is, í...quite cheap pissí.
