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.

22oz can. Pours fizzy yellow with a foamy white head. Grainy aroma. Light bodied with slightly sweet finish. Watery. Sweet flavor with subtle grain notes. Pretty standard among fizzy yellow beer. More flavor than light beer though.

From the archives: simple pale lager, rather dry. Nothing special. Good among Japan beers though.
