Bottle at home. Light yellow - white head. A very watery beer. Light malty, "vegetable", sweetness, some hop !?!! Not much of anything.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. Clear, almost golden beer with a small white head. The aroma is weak, with just some fruity notes. The flavor is weak as well, with some fruityness, hops, grass and malty hints. Medium body and a hop-fruity finish. Could’ve used a lot more of everything. (070106)

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draught. Gold colour with thin white head. Some dead pale malt aroma, some odd citrus fruit. Can I taste rice and maize? Certainly some adjuncts in this. Then a sickly prickly finish. I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy. Too gassy and flavours are indistinct

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep gold colour (like a Bohemian pils). No real head, though. Slightly malt and oily, but only slightly so, like a very light Bohemian pils. Moderate body. Much softer than the regular Kirin Lager (which I just had). Maltiness dominates, but is not particularly well-extracted. Light grassy bitterness and continental hop undertones complement the malts. Not bitter enough to be a proper pilsner, but it has many of the same components. Decent.

(Paired with sushi) Clear golden body with small white head. Aroma is light and sweet, some bread. Taste is light, sweet and watery. Minimal bitterness that's in the swallow. It's not bad, but it's certainly not worth seeking out.
