TBone (15907) - Pori, - APR 15, 2006
Can 350ml (BB 08/2006)
Pale yellow, mostly vanishing head. Corn aroma and boiled vegatables. Sweet corn, mushrooms and vegetables also in flavor. Really awful, can’t be like this as fresh?

BVery (9405) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2016
Can from FairPrice in Singapore. This is better than some other lagers I’ve had in the area, but by no means is it good. A little cleaner, maybe some sweet grains poking through, but still bland and boring.

HuskerTan (1560) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JUN 8, 2016
Draft. A- Sweet grains, cereal. A- Yellow color, clear liquid, white head. T- Sweet grains, subtle straw, subtle citrus. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, refreshing finish. O- Had with some Okinawan food. Actually pretty refreshing and not skunky at all.

BlackHaddock (6067) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2016
22oz bottle shared with my wife on 26th May 2016: poured into two La Chouffe badged tulips at our daughters. Last white crowns on both glasses, the beers body a light golden affair. Mild orange and herbal notes in the nose and taste, although the aroma was very, very weak. Refreshing but a little uninteresting and a typical International Lager/Pilsner in so much as being clean, clear and clinical in looks and flavour.

I’ve had this numerous times over the years, but noticed on my recent trip to Okinawa that this has got markedly better (not sure if the recipe changed). Also the quality of the beer I had on draft varied fairly significantly, but overall, I can say this is my second favorite Japanese mainstream beer now. At its peak condition this shows great toasted malt and cereal character with a rich malty backbone. I will rate for what I think my overall experience was with the beer, but at its best its a good 3.4/3.5 range

TizzleJizzle (770) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2016
1 pt. 5.4 oz bottle. Poured a slightly hazy golden with a thin white head that dissipated quickly. Crisp taste of Pilsner malt with a smooth finish and balanced acidity. Average carbonation, thin body.

JPDIPSO (5519) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Light golden with a modest off-white head. Plenty of grain, and light fish oil scent. Very sweet and grainy. Some herbal bitterness brings it back late in the quaff. Dry old malt finish. A thicker feel. A heavy pale lager.

rjplumer (972) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 25, 2016
Light sweet grain aroma. Clear pale golden body with a bright white soap bubbly head about an inch thick. The head lingers a good time compared to others this style. Mild bitterness which is offset by a sweet grain taste. Light bodied and has a crisp refreshing finish.

Not much aroma. Lighter yellow color, no cloudiness of course. Lighter fragrant start and light finish ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ungstrup (33994) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2015
A golden beer with a huge white head. The aroma has notes of straw and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, straw, and citrus fruits, leading to bitter finish.

mrjez (407) - Osaka, JAPAN - DEC 30, 2015
On draft in Naha. L: pours a very pale straw, clear, minimal carbonation, big creamy white head. S: almost no aroma, just cereal, wheat, mustiness, macro lager malt. T: tastes wheaty somewhat, light cereal, quite peppery yeast in the middle that quenches nicely, ends rather aqueous. F: very light and crisp, meant to be cold. O: just another macro lager. Enjoy with your Okinawan cuisine on a hot night.
