2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light gold color. Scant head, no lace. Aromas of malt, miscellaneous grain, maybe rice or corn, citrus, yeast and a tad of hops. Flavor was well-balanced, slightly malty and some noticeable hop flavor and bitterness. Tastes all-malt but no toastiness or sweetness. Slightly sour. Reminds me of Ortliebs or Carling Black Label, for those who remember.

12 oz bottle. There is really not much difference between Sapporo, Kirin, and Asahi. All 3 are Coor’s light type clones. I mean come on, do you expect rally good beer from Japan? No, of course not. You expect good food!

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Looks and tastes much like a Budweiser or a Fosters. Slightly more bitter finish than a Bud. Nothing special about this beer, just another pale lager.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Absolute crap. Possibly the worst beer I’ve ever had...and I’ve had a couple of doozies. In short it was the same as all the other macro pale lagers...except somehow worse. OK here goes:
Poured from bottle into a tall lager glass. Pale gold color with a fizzy, short lasting white head. This beer seriously smells like urine from some undistinguishable animal...possibly a nocturnal mammal. After waiting a bit, it opened up to display a LITTLE malt, mixed with urine of course. At this point I’m really beginning to think that this has been "recycled". Do I actually have to put this in my moputh??? Dear God this tastes aweful! A few sips and I was done. DRAINPOUR. I hope my septic tank bacteria will actually consume this crap.

Bottle. White disappering head. Clear golden body. Malt aroma. Thin hops flavor. Tickling feeling on the tongue.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Well this one is actually better than expected. It has a grassy and grainy nose with some soapy hopelements. Clear, golden-yellow coloured with a thin, white head. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter with a watery body. Carbonated, just a bit hoppy, and mainly grainy.

From an 12 oz. long neck brown bottle with a "Freshest Taste Within 180 Days Bottled Date," 27/Sept/05. Made an average appearance, poured a marco lager golden with a small foamy white head that slowly reduced to a fine lacing. Had an macro lager aroma,
grassy, rice grainy and pale malts, like a Budweiser. Moderate carbonation and
a slick light bodied mouth feel, easy
drinkability. Had your basic macro lager taste, a little grassy hop bitterness,
some rice graininess, bland pale malts
and a crisp finish with some grassiness
lingering in palate, smooth tasting
overall. This is your average macro lager in all aspects. Purchased as a single for $1.00 and I believe I was slightly overcharged considering what a six of Budweiser goes for.
