2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours clear pale straw with a short, short-lived white head, no lacing. (3/5) Nose is crackery pale malt, slightly grassy. (4/10) Taste is mild sweet, very mild bitter. (4/10) Light body, moderate carbonation, crisp finish. (3/5)
Light, crisp and inoffensive. Goes well with sushi, but that’s about the extent of it. (9/20)

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear straw yellow with small white head that soon vanishes leaving only minor skim.
Light aroma of malt, yeast and cereal. Taste is mild and pleasant, good for accompanying sushi or spicy food without being assertive. AB InBev is the actual brewer, so this in most respects this is another macro lager. But there’s a refreshingly crisp rice note.
Those who want to brag about how big and bold and alcoholic their microbrews are will flee. It’s a beer to have with Asian food on a hot day, when you want to have more than one.

Had this on draft at a Japanese restaurant recently. Is it great beer? No. Is it even good? Not particularly. But it goes down easy with some sushi.

Not bad for a commercial pale lager. Probably the good water used makes the difference. Golden pour, malty taste, bitter finish. Classic.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dorada muy clara ligeramente turbia. Espuma normal. Aroma escaso, a cereal. Bastante carbónica y refrescante con amargor final destacado. Nada especial. Bebible. Sin mas.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Draft. Pale, straw pour, eh. Lots of corn, brewing cereal in this one. No real hops or malts of note - it’s barely beer-like. Really lost any appeal it may have had as it approached room temperature - wasn’t keen to finish. If cold, it could work as a quick mouth rinser.

Bottle. This gear always gives the impression that it’s somehow better than other pale lagers when it really isn’t. Maybe a bit. Pours Clear Gold with a White head and a mess of bubbles. Tastes pretty inoffensive. Light malt, very light hops and extremely light bitterness.

0,33l bottle @Food Court, Schipol. Sour, light, pilsner, no hops or malts. Not unpleasant, just dull.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Appearance: Dark gold, small head, quickly goes away
Aroma: Malt, sweet
Taste: Same, with a faint bitterness
Palate: Semi-refreshing, not much to say
Standard Pilsner, but definitely better than Asahi
