Pours a very pale yellow color. Aroma is grassy hops and corn. Taste is similar. Not bad if served cold.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2005 It’s yellow, with a head like the one in your toilet bowel after pissing into it from standing on top of a ladder. (Big bubbles dissipating fast.) Smells like the inside of your kitchen garbage can, and beer.
Taste is bad, little hoppy and with astringency comparable to hairspray. Shameful.
If buy this, youv’e made a bad choice. If you drink it, you’’ll be sorry.

Has a zesty flavor that redeems it’s fishy smell and thin appearance.

Thought I would try a Japanese beer, then found out it is actually brewed by A-B. I don’t think this one is made with rice though. Nose is really strong of yeast and biscuit. Tasted a little to sweet, kind of like corn syrup, Too yeasty too. Not a good beer. Wasted money with this one

On tap at a local japanese restaurant. it paired well with some of the dishes, benefitting from the subtle spice and flaming hot, straight-off-the-grill temperature of the takoyaki

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours dark yellow with quickly falling white head. Smells of grain. Taste is overly bitter. Very little carbonation. Not very good at all.

Simples, porém bem melhor que as populares brasileiras, mas porém (novamente) o custo-benefício não confere.

Bottle: Not much to talk about as far as aroma. Decent head with little carbonation. This is the Miller Light of Japan. Really bland and watery

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden colour with a white head that disappeares quickly. Light corny and grainy aroma. Very sweet malt taste with basically no hop notes. Light and fresh mouthfeel. Slight acidity with a slight metallic aftertaste. A nice pale lager for people who like very sweet beers with basically no hop bitterness. An interesting beer in the sense that its sweetness would pair well with many light food.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Watery, boring, sudsy, with a foul bitterness that tasted almost like medicine. Nice golden color. Emergency beer in a pinch, but overall, not a do-again.
