Had this on my seventh wedding anniversary for good fortune...pale yellow, highly carbonated, started out with a large head that quickly fizzled out, no lacing, mild/almost nonexistant aroma, a tinge of hoppiness with a sweet finish. Not impressive, but better than most other widely available lagers.

HampshirePhil (216) - Portsmouth/London, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2013
330ml bottle - Dry coppery smell with heavy carbonised aroma. Strong and epidemic carbonation giving it a distilled taste. Weak watery taste and overly malted barley taste.

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.

0,33l bottle @Food Court, Schipol. Sour, light, pilsner, no hops or malts. Not unpleasant, just dull.

This beer was alright. It had a pale yellow body and was very light. Theres usually not much to say about a pale lager.

FlagstoneHill (214) - Erie, Colorado, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Bottle Grainy, ricey, some hoppy notes. . Light gold. Thin white head. Lotsa bubbles. . very light flavor with very slight bitter start and hints of malt/sweetness in the short finish. . light body, watery, prickly carbonation. . Summer beer! Not something that I’d go out of my way for, but for the asian style, pretty typical

brew4fun (209) - West Virginia, USA - DEC 11, 2006
12 oz. bottle. Deep golden with nice white head. Lacing OK. Not a lot of flavor, but at least it had some (re: Sapporo). Malty, no discernable hop flavor or aroma. Equal to the best US macro. Compared to other choices at the Japanese steakhouse in which I tried it, it was unfortunately the best. Not too bad, not too good. And definitely not "just right."

DBob5150 (209) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - FEB 19, 2010
Although not remarkable, it was enjoyable. Pours pretty much like a typical American macro. Slightly hoppy aroma, that drinks easy with a light malted corn taste and a crisp dry finish.

Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - APR 20, 2004
Pale color, a bit darker than a pils. Dry taste with hops aroma striving valiantly to rise above adjuncts.

too thin and too much rice influence
