On tap at Sushi Zushi. Pale yellow with a thin white head. Light and malty. Better than the average light beer, but not by much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Eine 33cl Flasche als "Vorspeise" zu Shushi gegönnt. Helle klare Farbe, schwacher Schaum. Im Geschmack fällt es weder auf noch ab.

Bottle from Beltramo’s in Menlo Park, CA. Slightly herbal and honey on the nose. Maybe some honey-nut cheerios. Fairly clean, grainy with a nice touch of honey-ish malts.

Bottle pour into shaker pint glass. Aroma is mild malt, some champagne-like yeastiness. Appearance is clear weak yellow with ephemeral ring of off-white head, no sparkle, no lacing. Taste is as aroma--mild malty sweet with some dry champagne-like yeast. Palate is light bodied with thin texture but dominant feature is over-the-top too lively carbonation. Overall, a beer to have to clear the throat with asian food (as I was doing). No other reason to have it.

Pale yellow, a little bubbly. Minimal aroma. Light body. Generic lager flavor. For a mass produced lager it’s kind of acceptable.

Un autre exemple d’une bière "qu’on savait" ordinaire. Elle est blonde dorée et sa mousse s’évanouit sans traces apparentes. Un nez de sirop et d’herbes mouillées. Un goût de sucre raffiné où une effervescence picote le palais et un aspect minéral. Ça se boit sans penser. (Embouteillée le 26 oct 15)(1715-160116)
