2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle… Clear golden lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Excellent retention. The nose is all about pale malt and lightly toasted grain... backed by spicy European hops. Light-bodied with lively carbonation. The flavor gives a slight nod toward the sweet side of balance. Bitterness is low, but it’s peppery. Short, crisp, lightly sweet finish.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
From a 633 ml bottle. Pale yellow beer, no head at all. Grassy and pissy aroma. Huge skunkiness that is pretty tough to take. Flavour is not bad, but it’s tough getting your nose that close to it. Grassy flavour.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
his was my first Japanese rice lager, it was a bit like Asahi, and it wasn’t very good.
It pours a clear, pale gold.
The nose is nonexistent.
The taste is super-subdued with some "beer" flavors, mineral water, and a pinch of hop.
This beer is really just one of those out there for tickers, I have on’y seen it at a few elect places though.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Yes, its another American Standard! This one is no disaster - there are hints of some character. Mediocre.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Sour barnyard malt aroma. Golden yellow with little head. Sour malt flavor with a hint of soy sauce. Light body. Okay if you don’t have any other choice or want a light beer.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Grass, rice, lemmon, pear and cinnamon in the aroma. Color of a bud light or any other Mass-Macro. Pours with a largish bubbly white head. Watery and bitter rice taste, but not in a very bad way, actually a decently refreshing aftertaste. Watery start to the mouthfeel ending very dry. Highly carbonated. Pretty boring.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from a Korean liquor store in Ridgefield, I took it to Paul’s gathering with Kan. Pours a clear piss yellow, with the correctly accompanying bubbles. Smells musky and sweaty, a bit like a hamster cage. Sweet corn juice flavor, relatively inoffensive. Once past the aroma it probably has a place… just not in my belly.
