(4 Jan 04, 5% ABV) A medium yellow brew with an average white head and no lacing to speak of. I noted a light malt and grass in the slightly sweet-smelling aroma. This is an unremarkable but drinkable beer.

Only a very slight skunk odor when the bottle is opened. I detect some hops in the aroma, but few in the actual taste. The flavor is a slightly sweet malt/ wheat. The color is a light gold. no aftertaste. Easy to drink

Heavily carbonated, very light golden but not quite yellow. Sweet, grassy, a little skunky, all very mild in aroma. Starts watery leading to a bitter in the back of the mouth that fades leaving a grassy hop flavor. Light. Better than many in this style.

Clear pale golden in color with a small white foam head. Weak aroma of sweet grainy malt. Watery malt flavor. Not terrible, but pretty boring.

It would be good with food, but taste like a light american lager, nothing special. Poured very clear golden color with a good size head. Taste is similar to any american light beer. Fun to drink because of the look of the bottle.

Average head, little lacing, white, mostly diminishing, clear, golden color. Malty aroma and flavor, Ahh not sure if I care too much about this one.

Bottle. Pours clear light golden color with large head. Crisp aroma that is very hoppy. Light body with very light watery taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2nd favorite of japanese sushi beers. Would like to do a side by side with asahi. Creamy head, yellow fizzy beer.

This is a ’situational’ beer - drink with sushi. Other than that, its light in body, high in carbonation and minimal flavors. Just a tad better than the Buds, Coors and Millers of the world.

As rice beer goes this is one of the better brews, Not a Tsing Tao but better than Supporo. Light and crisp.
