Pale yellow in color with thin head. Grassy aroma. Crisp and clean. Refreshing but not a lot of flavor.

Looked like a light beer in the glass. Light to no taste, lots of bubbles. Nothing indistinguishable.

Of course, this beer is great to drink with an Asian dinner. It’s smooth, and we think it tastes similar to Coors Light.

Good golden color. But no head and a very thin body, which i didnt expect. The taste is bland, and a little too bitter for me.

Very light beer, and of surprising quality. Smooth and easy to drink. Very little on the malt side, but a decent hoppy taste. Good brew.

altacyr (144) - Campinas, BRAZIL - FEB 5, 2009
Aroma imperceptível. Coloração amarelo ouro, densa. Sabor inicialmente adocicado, mas com residual amargo, com predomínio de lúpulo.

rakkasan (142) - Bresso, ITALY - JAN 6, 2010
bottle - not a whole lot to say about this one, typical malty, sweet asian brew, with undertones of rice and corn.

Standard bland mass produced lager but excellent with sushi, and light and refreshing ice cold.
