Fizzy and light, not much better than Miller to make up for the pricy import difference

Hops right front of me, malty, beautiful gold yellow color, little head retention, lack of foam. Very malty taste. Nice presentation with beautiful design on the label. Lager beer.

Bottle into a larger glass. Aroma is weak malt. Pour is a light yellow. Taste is very light. Finish is clean. High end bud, nothing high end here.

Meh this was gross. I was getting some sushi and thought what the hell I’ll try it. Wet cardboard and paper. Cream corn grass staleness. Not the best aromas. Taste is bearable but not that great. Taste is not its strong suit. Overall won’t be trying this again.

Tastes like lager. Cooled me down well enough, but that’s all. Only bought due to limited menu.

On draft. Clear golden color with little head. Grainy aroma. Taste is grainy too and nothing special. Is drinkable enough.

Bottle with sushi. Pale yellow, small white head, gone. The aroma and flavor have corn, grains, not much else, but it doesn’t interfere with my dinner.
