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.

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.

Yellow with a moderate white head. Hops and some very minor floral elements in the flavor.

Bottle. Pale yellow with a white head. Big bubbles. Harsh aroma and taste. Not much else going on. Crisp. Iíll pass on another.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Bottle. Pale clear glimmiering gold color. Pungent skunky aroma, assorted grains. Sweet grainy cheap lager taste, with a handful of corn kernals. Low on the offensive scale, also low on the flavor scale.
