23-May-08 (633-ml bottle: Purchased 12-May-08 for $2.99 at Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA) Nothing too special with this Asian beer. Rice and bready sweetness are the principle flavors, but there’s a hint of spicy, mildly bitter hops in the background, plus a mild, lemony tartness in the finish. The beer shows better balance as it warms up, and this increases enjoyment and drinkability. Along with the standard rice, cardboard and adjuncty aromas, there’s also some lemongrass and peppery spice, so all is not lost in that department either. On the palate, it’s light in body, medium-high in carbonation, and somewhat refreshing from the lemony tartness. Golden-yellow in color with brilliant clarity. The fizzy, white head pours fairly bubbly and dissipates rapidly. Overall, I wasn’t impressed by the beer when it was cold, but it’s actually not a bad-tasting beer. However, it’s not enjoyable enough to purchase again.

From the bottle, the pour is golden Tempe with a thin white head, the aroma is similar to bud light, the taste is an ale but not a deep complex flavor, ok for an ale on a hot day but nothing making it better than a us beer

Bottle from Mollie Stone in San Mateo, CA. Slight corn / floral nose. Frothy mouthfeel. Very light but clean, cereal grain and honey finish. Do people in japan have lawnmowers? Somebody submit this to Quora for me.

Used to drink this all the time when I was on Okinawa. About what you’d expect from a macro lager. Nothing at all special.

It belongs to the category of barely drinkable mass market lager. Pour from can, lively gold liquid with ample head that vanishes fast. Somewhat floral smell, somewhat sweet taste and somewhat alcohol aftertaste, all not very significant. The good thing about this beer is that it’s at least drinkable, but I would take his cousin Asahi Draft anytime any day.

Regular lager, very refreshing and drinkable and not complex. I had it slightly warm and shaken up, still good to the last drop

Bottle. Flaccid and boring brew that tastes of sweet rice and list hope. But if it's got and it's what they got... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught in Naha. Light macro lager profile, not much different from the normal version. Refreshing at best, matches ok with the local food and weather I guess but water works fine too :)

Drank as a draught. Your usual lager, not that much taste. Feels quite refreshing when drank from an ice cold glass.

Clear yellow gold. Dissipating white head. Mostly malty to me. Sweet. Light body. Refreshing. Nothing interesting or exciting. Not too strongly flavored. It did its job between pieces of sushi.

Erzengel (5800) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2015
Can in Hongkong. Pale metallic beginning. Not too deep, grainy-fresh, metallic without deepness. Boring grainy beer with a harsh bitterness.
