Clear sparkling yellow-gold color topped with a fluffy crean colored head. Sweet, smooth corn and barley malt flavor. Average for the style.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Heavily carbonated, very light golden but not quite yellow. Sweet, grassy, a little skunky, all very mild in aroma. Starts watery leading to a bitter in the back of the mouth that fades leaving a grassy hop flavor. Light. Better than many in this style.

Very light beer, and of surprising quality. Smooth and easy to drink. Very little on the malt side, but a decent hoppy taste. Good brew.

Bottled, alc. 5.0% (BB 08/2006)
Brewed by license in UK.
Pale yellow, small white head. Weak maize-corn, malty nose. Quite light palate.Sweet fruity maltyness. Also aftertaste is sweetish malty. Somewhat you can expect from Asian pale lager.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottled (5%). Golden colour, small white head. Malts in aroma, along with weak hints of maize. Strong maizeish and malty flavour, with a bit metallic hints. Not for drinking separately, but I think with food, especially spiced, it would be ok to drink.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rather light, nothing that stuck out. Not bad, but tasted much like a light beer. You can tell that there was time put into the brewing process, the problem is that it just came out an average beer. Not bad, I got it at a Japanese restaurant, so it went perfectly with the meal. I would drink it again.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma is like a pale lager should be, but with a honey, bubblegum tinge. Body is pale, cheap head. Taste has a like fruity flavor to it. Not as bad as bmc, but won’t drink it again.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
This was a very light beer with not much head when poured from a bottle. There really was not much flavor and I would put this in the class of many of the macro pale lagers

I was let down when i found out that an American brewery made this beer. Tastes like an American brew but much stronger and more bitter. At times, almost hard to drink because of the bitterness and carbonation. If you want Japanese beer, go to Japan.
