bad beer. Birra normalissima, per niente buona, non si distingue dalle birre commerciali più famose.

Bottle paired with sushi. Rather average lager beer, nothing really special about this one. Would be good as a ice cold beer on a hot day.

Dzhigga (110) - Kirov, RUSSIA - APR 29, 2014
Can. Golden color with medium fast-disappearing head. Malty aroma. Medium hops in aftertaste. Not bad for Asian beer.

Bottle, pours golden with a thin white head, slightly sweet with a bitter finish, not that great

radarsock (882) - Vermont, USA - APR 27, 2014
Had on tap at the only Thai restaurant in town. Was $3 for the full pint. Pours a dark yellow with which a quickly-diminishing off-white head half a finger in length stood. Experienced rice malt, noble hops, and wheat grain. Pretty straightforward. Good for a hot day, may even surpass lemonade. Swishable.

floydian1 (898) - FNQ, Australia, - APR 23, 2014
350ml tinnie imported from Japan (I believe it is also brewed in Australia under licence). Clear bright gold with a transient medium-sized white head that laces minimally. Not much on the nose apart from sweet grainy malts. Mouthfeel is watery and flat with honey sweet malt flavours and a low hop bitterness. Your standard uncomplicated Asian lager.

Bottle. Pours golden with medium head that fades quickly. Initially sweet taste with long bitter aftertaste.

Cerveja clara, fraca, muito parecida com as blonds.... e semelhante com as nacionais ... Custo benefício muito bom.......vale a pena -
