Pours a light clear golden color with white head. Typical lager flavors on this one, mainly just cereal grain on the nose and palate.

22 FL OZ ($3.30) This is a very light tasting beer and goes down like water. Its not bad but I prefer some taste to my beer. I’ve come to expect all lager to be pretty much watered down beer. nothing too intense and I don’t recommend this one.

Hidden_Pooch (410) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
On tap with my brew goblin. Better than any macro brew in North America. Tastes of hay, wheat, and light floral hops. Not a bad body on it for a lager and a good white head. Taste is crisp and clean, quite a refreshing lager.

Pale golden color with white head. Hops and cereals on the aroma. Bitter taste, with hop presence. Refreshing.

ShivanDragon (1862) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 1, 2014
helder gouden met minimale witte kraag. aroma van mout en graan. smaken zijn redelijk zoet, matig bitter, matig sterk, pilsmouten, citrus en graan, verder een lichte body, gald en dun en ietwat droge afdronk. Ook deze als Japans bier is te drinken, echter moet ik wel zeggen dat deze minder is dan de Asahi.

ramboraffe (761) - SWEDEN - JUN 1, 2014
500 ml bottle. Clear light golden with white head. Smell is lager yeast and some malt. Taste is sweet and a bit citrus. Low bitterness and a bit watery.

Light straw color. Light grassy to no aroma. Light body. Just what you'd expect from a light lager...light, light, light. Nice with sushi.

The smooth taste and mild aroma goes perfect with sushi. Otherwise, hyst a regular lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
