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.

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.

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.

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.

Golden color, alittle hop, some sweetness tasted like a strange version of bud or something.

JohnBruns (100) - Cissna Park, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2008
This clear yellow brew poured a medium head that also had a yellow hew to it. The aroma was average as was the flavor. Had a slight sweet finish.

TheBeerMaster (100) - Little Falls, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Definite must at a Japanese restaurant, but otherwise pretty forgettable unless Sake bombing. Malty aroma, crisp with very light (almost undetectable) flavor.
