A clear medium gold color with a thick off-white head. Has a ’bail of hay that was left out in the rain’ smell to it. A mild hoppiness that gives way to a mild sweet malt flavor and then fades again with a short lived bitter follow. A decent macro.

You know, not too shabby. Nice full bodywith light-moderately dark lager appearance. Decent head with clean full taste. Had with shushi and vase of sake. Complimented nicely. For people who drink bud or miller (and the like) Drink this as alternative.

I did’nt know what I was getting into to. But I must say I liked it enough to buy it again. Crisp taste, serve best cold.

Really can’t understand the other ratings. Those guys must have been very thirsty. Very bland, nothing to recommend at all.

wasn't sure what to expect from this. pleasantly surprised. very crisp beer. reminded me of budweiser without the nasty aftertaste. it starts out bitter on the tongue then fades out nicely. went well with dinner.

Simply the best beer you can get that's not expensive. Crisp taste, very clean buzz, no hangover!!Drink this at least three times a week.

I wasn't sure what to expect being japanese and all. I was delightfully surprised however and would highly recommend it. Having said that, the ability to buy a one litre can from a vending machine 24/7 in a suburban back street goes along way....
