Finest barley malt, premium hops, smooth finish, no bitter aftertaste.

Pours a very light pale yellow with a big foamy head. No lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet corn and minimal malts. Taste is much of the same. Has a clean finish.

I like this beer. I think it is better than Sapporo and will be drinking this with my sushi from now on.

Rentalman (103) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 24, 2004
(Draft) Super light color with almost no head at all. No real aroma to speak of. A slightly heinikenish flavor with a bit of skunkyness and a blittle sweetness.

I purchased a can of this Jap brew because I wanted to try something new. After sampling this beer I realized one thing, the Japanese should stick to making sake and sushi. Phu-Yuk!!

garretjax (103) - Colorado, USA - APR 1, 2008
Clear light golden color with a large white head. Grain and malt aromas. Light body and medium carbonation. Grassy and malty flavors. Finishes with that cereal mash, at least its refreshing.

KSS (102) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 20, 2006
Clear sparkling yellow-gold color topped with a fluffy crean colored head. Sweet, smooth corn and barley malt flavor. Average for the style.

Weefannybaws (102) - Paisley, SCOTLAND - AUG 14, 2013
330ml bottle. Normally drinks taste better the more alcohol has been consumed; When tasting this beer, I had already consumed a fair amount. It had an aroma of lemons and farts. Taste of citrus and iron. Quite refreshing though. Would go well with crisps or nuts.

Ligth golden color big white head. Flat taste no bobble´s and no finish... very boring beer!

Mullo (102) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 17, 2005
A pale lager. Presumably rice or other adjuncts used (except in the commercial description...), which means not much in the malt flavouring. Yes, an easy to drink beer, with "no bitter aftertaste", but unfortunately, I like flavour and an aftertaste.

Haack (101) - Hornslet, DENMARK - JUN 3, 2006
bottle. big white head with a clear gold color. Grainy hop aroma. Grainy taste. Corn? Rice? Flavor so light I really can’t tell. ever so slight bitter aftertaste. nothing repulsive, nothing great. Take it or leave it.
