So Iím sitting there drinking this and complaining. Saying how it tastes like a Budweiser but a little better. Then Iím reading the bottle and itís saying how itís monitered by the A-B brewmaster or something. Figures. No hops here really, some malt but basically another boring lager. Not offensive, less than enjoyable.

Light golden, small white head. Sweetish, malty aroma, some corn. Weak malty flavor, some fruit. Thin and boring.

I was let down when i found out that an American brewery made this beer. Tastes like an American brew but much stronger and more bitter. At times, almost hard to drink because of the bitterness and carbonation. If you want Japanese beer, go to Japan.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2007 Wetherspooons Beer & Cider Festival May 2006 at The Falcon, High Wycombe and from the keg. Pale, slightly cloudy. Aroma is odd and vinegary, a touch of butter - possibly old. Boring keg lager, thst is softly flavouired - and that is about itís best featured. Bad.

Padron4KM (596) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUN 17, 2006
12 oz bottle.
Clear gold with a fizzy short lived head.
Smells of skunk piss and grain.
Metalic flavor, creamy body, slight bitter finish.
Tastes better with a shot of sake and some ahi tuna. On itís own not so good

Bottle. Pours yellow with a small head. This beer always tastes skunky to me and Iíve had multiple bottles and they are fresh so something is not right there. Pretty watery and flavorless. Could be somewhat refreshing if it werenít so skunky.
