about as good as a pale lager can get which is still not good. Light, crisp, and clean. Not worth trying.

morrdt (715) - Dirty Mo’, North Carolina, USA - JAN 18, 2006
24 oz. can. Woot! Nothing too impressive about this beer, other than the aftertaste. Drinkable, but I won’t go looking for this beer.

rlgk (17976) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2006
Light golden, small white head. Sweetish, malty aroma, some corn. Weak malty flavor, some fruit. Thin and boring.

McKnizzle69 (89) - Machesney Park, Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2006
Bottle: Not much to talk about as far as aroma. Decent head with little carbonation. This is the Miller Light of Japan. Really bland and watery

harrisoni (17162) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2006
Draught. Gold colour with thin white head. Some dead pale malt aroma, some odd citrus fruit. Can I taste rice and maize? Certainly some adjuncts in this. Then a sickly prickly finish. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy. Too gassy and flavours are indistinct

FistFullOfCats (163) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Draught. Ok, let keep this simple. This tastes like corn and sugar. Corn and sugar. Not even fresh corn. Canned corn and sugar. It’s not good.

lovelacm (48) - Niceville, Florida, USA - JAN 8, 2006
Large bottle @ I Love Sushi in ABQ, NM. Large white, frothy head atop a clear yellow body. Not that much aroma to pass along.. some grains, but that’s it. Light, unobtrusive flavor, but nothing special (definately not Special Premium Reserve quality). Yes, this does put out the fire of oriental spices, but not much more.

The only good thing about this beer is that it will cut through spicy flavors. Nothing special.

Dorwart (2519) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 31, 2005
Large white head of frothy bubbles. Almost no carbonation. Rice and corn aroma. Nothing that special for a "Special Premium Reserve". Weak, watery cornflakes and rice. Medium gold in color. No real offensive characteristics. Can easily do without.

stouby (4427) - Holbæk, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2005
Bottle, in Gothenburg (040413). Fully golden with a white head. Aroma light malty (corn, rice) and hoppy. Flavor light sweet and bitter. Light body. My version was 5,5% .
