2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Ok bought in the 21.4 oz bottle to go along with some sushi I had got.
Nice enough beer to look at..deep clear gold colour with a largish foamy pure white head with some active carbonation.
Smell also is pleasant yet pretty average for a lager..nicefresh hops..slighly peppery..but mostly a bread smell.
The taste however is a let down..this is almost exactly the same as Budweiser for a premium price..thin and leaves no impression at all..least its not horrible.
Pretty wishy washy on the palate.
NOt drinkable to me at all..even with sushi..I'll buy Sapporo Reserve next time.

Light golden body with moderate carbonation and a fast-fading fizzy head. Aroma of grassy hops and pale malt. Light flavor and palate. The best of the 3 widely available Japanese beers.

mmm, nothing stand out. I suppose it is a japanese lager, so i shouldnt be expecting a lot. It is a nice clean colour but it has little aroma. Tastes grainy and a little too light. not too much flavour and zero aftertaste. Overpriced for a standard, inoffensive, japanise lager.

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.

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.
