Straight from the bottle at a gig. Surprisingly ok. Tastes better than I would have expected. Decent creaminess, bit of indistinct fruitiness, quite refreshing. Maybe I’ve found my new macro. Dunno what it looks like. Can’t really smell it, will probably give me a hangover, but tastes alright.

Pleasant but not exceptional by a long way.Straw coloured and a thin taste. No outstanding or dominant flavours.My first Japanese rating-its got to get better!

Bottle: Hazy yellow with a thin large-bubbled white head. Grass aroma with some lemon, medium body, starts and ends lightly bitter. Ends crisp and clean. Much better than most imported Japanese lagers.

Deep strawin color,slight haze and a thick rocky white head. Aroma of bread and malt, with a faint hop character. Flavor starts sweet and finishes dry.

One of the better beers from Japan available here in the states. Your Sapporo, Kirin and Asahis are all brewed in North America. Orion is still brewed in Okinawa, Japan and brought over on containers. If anything, you can appreciate that. Refreshing beer.

I thought this was pretty solid for a pale lager. No funk in the aroma or flavor. Smooth and light tasting, a bit of dryness near the finish. Doesn’t taste ricy. Pretty good. Had at Roy’s in Las Vegas.

Sampled at Mexicali´s Baja Beer Fest Friday, 2009.Dude a small-cup cost 8 dlls .but it was worth it, very , some corn notes, very average hops character very resembling to Budweiser but a little more malty, plenty of head, light yellow body and plenty of white foam for head, kinda of salty a strong dose of carbonation present, wit a a crisp finish i may say too.Good will drink it if they introduced it here.

Quit a suprise when I popped the top of this behemoth bottle and poured the contents into my glass. A fresh blast of fresh baked bread and a light lemony touch. I kept pounding my glass because the aroma was so inviting for a pale lager. Really suprised. The body was a standard piss-yellow color, 1" frothy tan head which melted into a oil-slick-like island of scum that petered around the middle of my glass. Flavor has some solid citrus notes, light grassy bitterness, some yeast and grainy. Clean finish. Very refreshing.

This may be a situational higher rating, but I had this on my last sushi dining experience, and sometimes a beer can just complement a meal perfectly. Big bomber of a bottle. the beer poured a perfect pale lager light yellow with a tight thin white head. Aroma was bread, lemon citrus, a little bit of grain, some really nice light hop background. Flavor was a bit bready on the front, but complemented the sashimi very nicely. Really smooth, nothing harsh. Pretty decent pale lager. Maybe I need to retry Coors Light the next time I have sushi (hah!)

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
