Tasted like Bud Light. Light yellow color with no head. Some balance...but not much from the aroma or flavor. Won't get this again.

This beer has a light yellow body - hue with a bitter initial flavor and a light body.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 16, 2003
Smelled faintly ricey, but maybe I'm being influenced by the fact it is Japanese. Really boring. Fizzy medium yellow. Just too much of nothing. Very faint bitterness.

This tasted like a macro euro-lager to me, and a very cheaply made one at that. Husky/musty/soapy aromas and flavor. Probably adjunct laden. Kind of bitter in the finish.

Well no one brags about Asian beers ... and usually for good reason. This was a pretty standard Asian Lager. Just an odd varient of Budweiser.

Not too much to be said about this that hasn't been said before. A lightly sweet taste makes this an easy drinking, enjoyable beer.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2003
Bottled Light straw gold, with pleny of fiz. Cheep and thin. Quite unimpressive really.

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2003
From a can, beer pours (in Chimay glass) an applejuice (piss, read 'urine')-golden color with virgin-white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is of strong straw, grass, vegetal. Flavor is of a watered down straw, grass - not too prominent. Still a drainpour. Looks awful. Tastes awful. Just another sucky, yellow beer - and there's plenty of them. Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.

In 5 words: Cold, crisp, light, refreshing, clean. I think that about sums it up.

I liked this stuff with sushi. Decent light malty taste for a megabrew, hops were clean smelling but light. Body was decent and aftertaste was slightly sweet and long.
