3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rating against the other majors, not craft beers of course, this scores high. Light on flavor, but doesn’t feel cheap or fake. Done well, easy to drink. Nice aftertaste.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Classic Japanese pale lager. Light grassy and grainy aromas. Active carbonation, tastes of cardboard and grain. Light body and watery mouthfeel. Dry finish. True to style, but unfinishable for me at this point.

Bottle. Clear light golden body. Fizzy white head, diminishing. Light aroma of raw grain, herbs, hint of vegetables. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Light grassy taste mixed in with vegetable and light sulfur. A inoffensive pale lager with little character.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.3 FL oz. bottled at One Flew South, in the Atlanta airport. The pour is clear golden with not much white head. The aroma is cereal grain malt along with a bit of sweet floral. The taste is the clean malt cereal grain along with a nice soft sweet floral. Decent integration of the flavors. The palate is light to medium bodied with active carbonation and a clean simple dry finish. Simple straightforward and clean beer, worked well with sushi.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A little mechanical aroma, more metal.. color is fair gold. Taste is sort of breqdy, more bitter than average discount lager. Stands out because can looms weird and its pretty bitter.
