UPDATED: OCT 8, 2007 Not bad for a light pilsner--that is, when combined with pickled ginger and wasabi. In other words, my beer of choice with sushi.

clear dark yellow gold like urine after a steady diet of highly processed food. white thick foamy head that lasts. sweet aroma, like refined sugar. flavor starts chickenfeed sweet, then slight hop finish. easy to ignore while hanging out with a large group.

Light beer japanese style. Decent aroma, not much body and o.k. flavor light and ricey though. This is the best of the 3 that I tried tonight at the Japanese restaurant and you have to love the bottle size!!

Bottle. Pale clear yellow with a ring of white lace. Old Milwaukee with a little more finishing hops. Whoopee.

An extremely crisp and airy lager that tended towards perfuminess and occasional bursts of interest, but mostly bland...and not really that great a compliment to sushi...especially after a real nice wasabi blast. I guess this ends a meal allright, but not my first choice.

American style macro lager. Pours from the bottle with a bit of a head, but it doesnít last. Any aroma dissapears well before the head. I just canít find anything to like or dislike. Itís pretty good, but thatís not saying much.

great looking design on the bottle and actually was a really great asian beer. i enjoyed this one very much. easy to drink tasted kinda like a budweiser but not with the nasty aftertaste. very nice different beer

Of course I order this with Sushi and thats about it. The beer is malty and I would say skunky too, but for some reason it has a good alcoholic kick compared to other japanese beers.

The impressive label does not do this beer justice. It is a plain import sold to people who like strange names on their beer. Pale, little taste. On the positive side, it is very easy to drink.
