Dogbrick (8119) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Pale golden color with a medium foamy white head that recedes slowly. Aroma of grain and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of grainy malt, corn and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a grassy hops aftertaste. Below average overall.

Can. This one wander nearly as good as I remembered it. Thin nose and body. Grass, watery hops, with not much crispness. Expected much better. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kidmartinek (3654) - austin, Texas, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Pale yellow, pouring with a 3 inch, white foamy head. Aroma is of pale malt. Flavor is grainy, a little bitter, a little sweet, and a little gummy. No, a lot gummy. Just let it warm one minute before you pour it out.

GoufCustom (822) - HONG KONG - MAY 10, 2013

330 ml can bought at Sogo Freshmart in Tsim Sha Tsui.

Clear golden yellow colour; Thin head and white foam which last for about 30 seconds; Small lacing and pretty fizzy carbonation; Quite pungent smell of malt, rice, very light wet cardboard and faint grass; Very light sweet taste of thin malt, with rice, corn, faint chalk dust, and faint note of grass; Light body, thin but crisp palate; Mouth feel is typical, highly carbo macro with very low malt base, rice-laden, and very faint but tolerable chalk dust; Hoppiness is very faint grassy nose, almost zero taste of citrus and hint of grass and bitterness. Not much of a finish; Slightly Dry after taste, very easy to mouth.

Comments: As Orion’s mainstay, this is no lowly happoshu, but there’s not much quality to speak of, either. Typical ricey Asian macro with very low chalk as its redeeming value, and as a ‘draft’, its taste is wet and messy. Not a drain pour, but not something I’ll have again.

Pale golden beer with a minor white head. The aroma has some nice hops and malt. Light body with moderate carbonation. A pretty normal pale lager.

maxwelldeux (3662) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle at Maru in Cary, NC. Pours a clear golden color with a moderate white head. Nose is much like every lager that you find being mass produced. I did find this one to be very clean and crisp, which was a nice finish to a meal of Korean bbq. Easy refreshing drink, but nothing to seek out.

Now I don’t usually review cheap pale lagers but Wade’s Wine’s just introduced a new Japanese beer section and due to my obsession with anything Japanese, I had to try it all. Faint aroma of corn. See through copper appearance. Taste is a bland, watery mess with weak flavors of rice flakes and biscuit. Overall, just your standard pale lager. Not very good.

Lagerboy (1229) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 11, 2013
Bomber. Clear pale golden yellow, foamy white head vanishes. Sweet corny aroma and taste, bready lager malt, some faint grassy hop. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Typical Asian industrial swill manufactured to be consumed in mass quantities. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

thetmaxx (746) - West Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 8, 2013
From the bottle at sushi dinner. Served in a fountain soda glass. LOL @ the beer of beers! Very pale pour, light head probably due too dish washed glass. Aroma of rice, corn, and light fruit esters. Flavor is similar, very light and watery. Sort of like a Bud. To bad sushi restaurants don’t serve Japanese craft beer, if it even exists?
