TBone (12988) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2014
Can (Nagoya). Golden color, small white head. Aroma has rubber and corn. Light-bodied. Watery and fizzy. Similar rubber and corn flavors in the flavor than in the aroma. Lowend bulk.

biirusaikou (811) - - JUN 13, 2014
More of a summer diet beer soda, not too offensive but pretty tasteless. Chemicals almost do a decent job to reproduce a thin macro lager.

czlowiekwiadro (246) - POLAND - MAY 17, 2014
zapach słodowy i kanalizacyjny. złoty kolor, piana mierna. w smaku woda, kukurydza i lekka, ale nieprzyjemnie osadzająca się goryczka.

melush (969) - SPAIN - MAY 15, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2014 Lata de 33 cl, adquirida en un Sunkus de Nagoya, Japon. Color dorado. Escaso sabor, muy ligeramente a malta, dulce. Recuerda al agua con gas.

Sledutah (5095) - Utah, USA - MAY 13, 2014
12oz can picked up at the hotel in Tokyo
Clear golden with a medium sized white head that dissipates quickly, some lacing. Aroma of sweet malts, corn, grassy and apples. Tastes like seltzer water, grassy, corn with a bitter dry finish
I wouldnít have another

350 ml can thanks to Ingo! Sampled on December 21, 2013.
Clear pale golden color, small white head. Sweet, light, apple, vegetable scent. Thin, malty, short taste. Very short grainy aftertaste. Thin fizzy mouthfeel, low to medium low bitterness.

GoufCustom (874) - HONG KONG - DEC 17, 2013


350 ml can bought at YATA in New Town Plaza, Shatin.

Piss golden yellow colour; Razor thin head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Almost no lacing and no carbonation; Pungent smell of thin malt, with light apple juice, light syrup, corn, trace of unknown chemicals, hint of lemon and grass; Minimal sweet taste of very thin malt, with light grains, soda water, light wet cardboard, trace of lemon and grass; Light body, watery palate; Taste profile a razor-thin malt base. Near totally soda-like background with notes of malt and grains, and a bit of wet cardboard. Nothing else; Almost zero hoppiness, just hint of lemon and grass in nose and taste. No bitterness, soda finish; Wet after taste, extremely easy to mouth.

Comments: So the canís label says itís 70% less carbohydrates, and that means 70% less drinking fun. This got to be the least offensive Happoshu Iíve had so far, because itís practically tasteless, just piss-coloured soda water. Drain pour after 5 sips. Anheuser-Busch, your Buds is decent afterall!

petewhitley (350) - JAPAN - NOV 17, 2013
UPDATED: APR 25, 2014 alcohol, rotten eggs, golden, hazy, frothy, light sweetness, lightly sour, light body, thin feel. More akin to a fruit-flavored soda than a beer (or more precisely, happoshu). NOT a tasty brew, but itís inoffensive, light, and cheap. Because of those qualities, it has a regular place in my cooler as a source of alcoholic refreshment.

maekchu (2283) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 12, 2013
Can. Typical harsh sauerkraut nose. Light straw color. Thin sweetness, with a creeping tart sour juice punch in mid palate, and tapers off to light sugar and some very minor hops. Thin body. Not very appealing stuff. A very denatured sort of brew, w/o any soul. Why do people drink this? Why did I?!
