redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Cereal grains and honey aromas with hints of grass. Pours clear blonde with a white head that dissipates quickly. Light cereal flavors with hints of corn and hints of grassy hops. Finishes very light and dry.

GenkiGonzo (306) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 2, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2014 Draught at the brewery. Pale gold, big white head. Aroma is mostly malts, some grass. Flavour has some hop profile but not much. Easy drinking given the weather in Okinawa.

500ml can from Tokyo Liquor Wyndham St pours light gold, grassy mild aroma, taste similar with a slight malty fruity bitter finish, light but enjoyable

ordybill (101) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Poured from a large bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- this beer has hints of yeast, hops and malt that can be detected. Appearance- beer pours a pale yellow that is clear and has a one inch white head. Taste- A great hoppy flavor that has great dry finish. Palate- a nice light body with a dry finish that is accented by the lively carbonation. Overall- I may be biased since I loved this beer for years while stationed in Okinawa but I think this maybe the most flavorful Japanese rice lager. If it was available more often I would definitely drink it more in the States.

Jimthechap (1685) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 1, 2014
Pale gold with coarse carbonation and a fluffy white head. Aromas of typical bugger-all lager - dusty grain and some metallic tang. This comes through in the flavour. It could be any international lager from any brewer in any country.

futre7 (143) - Taipei, TAIWAN - JUL 25, 2014
Orion is a reliable lager. It is good with food and as a standalone. Malt and corn aroma. Relatively light flavor with malt, apple and corn bread. It is a solid lager and always worth having. Shame it is not more freely available in Taiwan.

WheatKing (1305) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2014
Tall can. Distinctive, which is nice for this style. Light gold, not much head. Nose is slight apple, paper. Flavour is dry cereal, corn, and slight apple. Very full flavour, like theyre embracing the adjuncts. Finishes a bit drier than average, as japanese lagers are wont to do. Not that bad.

JaKeAFC (568) - ITALY - JUL 4, 2014
33 cl can in Hong Kong. Light cold color, clear, with a nice lingering white head. Malty nose. Aroma is pretty malty, with grains and bread, somewhat doughy. Taste is sweetish but balanced, body is light to medium and finish somwhat sticky and sour. Tasty lager, nonetheless.

Tap. Pale, golden, hazy, frothy, light body, soft carbonation, white foam, & astringent finish.

czlowiekwiadro (232) - POLAND - MAY 3, 2014
zapach starego chmielu i skarpety (nie tak starej jak chmiel). złoty, przejrzysty kolor i dość porządna piana. w smaku jedyne co czuć to lekka, ziemista goryczka.

Dzhigga (126) - Kirov, RUSSIA - APR 28, 2014
Bottled. Pale golden color with fast-disappearing head. Malty beer for the food. Nothing interesting.
