2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 ounce bottle, bottled on 18 Jan 2012, the bottle says freshest taste within 180 days so I think I’m still good there. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear gold color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing is average. Aroma is sweet malt and corn, and not much else. Taste is the same as the aroma. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it is light and goes down easy. For the style of beer it is, it’s not too bad. Worth a try if you can pick up a single bottle somewhere.

En helt ordinær lager både i farge, smak og lukt. Fikk denne til sushi og det var helt greit, sikkert god på en varm sommerdag også - men ikke verdt polprisen...

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2014 Was the only choice at a sushi restaurant, light, tasteless Japanese lager. Absolutely forgettable beer.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can, 50cl. Pours light pale, golden color with a airy head which quicky vanish. Aroma is weak, malty, some grain and little hops. Malt, hay and slight bitter/sourness to its end. Thin body - average carbonation. Typical mass produced lager. Nothing wrong with it per se, just boring.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: Clean but definite fruity/slight solvent aroma - hops? yeast? both?
Appearance: Brilliant, dark straw/light golden
Taste: nicely balanced - light malt flavor along with clean, noble hop flavor ending with a cleansing pleasant bitterness on the finish
Palate: medium mouthfeel, medium-high carbonation, nice balance of sweetness blended with hop flavor mid-palate, then finishing nice and dry with a delicate bitterness
Overall: A great beer to drink with practically any food, but especially spicy, flavorful Asian cuisine. Great light lager, gives you some excellent yet delicate malt and hop flavor, cleans the palate, and gets the f^$% out of the way. Also an excellent choice on a hot day, and is likely to be well received by the BMC crowd that’s curious about all of those high-falutin’ craft beers they’ve been hearing about.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Nice floral aroma, corn, dme and some pale malts. Taste is the same with a dry finish. Crisp and clean and better than most North American macro lagers.
