Just so little flavor. But thankfully no overwhelming off flavors either other than a little skunkiness but the bottle might have been old. Thirst quencher at best. Serving: Bottle

Bottle pours a crystal clear pale yellow color with a short lived white head. Zero lacing along the glass. Sweet malty aroma of corn. Flavor is quite light and sweet. Overall pretty bland with just a hint of hops.

Japanese beers tend to be on the light side in general and this light version of a Japanese beer is no exception. It is reasonably hoppy (unfortunately a bit skunky even served from a brown bottle) w/ a crisp, light palate. Lower than average alcohol makes it a good beer to have alongside food for lunch if you tend to be inclined to drowsiness after meals. Otherwise, this is like a slightly more hoppy version of Bud Light w/ a slight apple note and not much else going of flavorwise.

Found this to be very smooth and inoffensive. Not a go-to, but really not bad.

Apart from a bread smell there is nothing to talk about. Golden light beer with a nasty aftertaste than only those who are not into craft beer like.
