Poured a light yellow color with a large white head. Nothing too special to note other than it is standard fare at Japanese restaurants and goes well with sushi...

Decent body and slight maltiness for the style. Otherwise pretty typical. Goes down easy.

not bad, had it at pf changs with some spicy food and was pleased. went down well, tasted pretty good, and was an overall good beer. not one to strive for, but refreshing and good in the right situations. had a very large head, aroma filled with macroness(if thats a word). tastes like a nice lager.

Bottle. Very pale straw colored beer with a big white head. Aroma is not bad - some flowery essencse with a hint of hops. Very light flavor with lot of adjuncts, but there’s malt too. A slight herbal/spice flavor, but it’s light.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
CAN. Cool looking can. Pours light golden, see through with a frothy white head. looks good. Damn! Why did I have to smell it? Has aroma of rice malt and slightly skunky aroma. Flavor is bland and watery, but it does seem to have a little bitterness. Not the worst, but certainly not very good. Now then, back to that cool can....

Pours pale yellow, some floral hops character to the nose, overly carbonated, has a sour flavor and bitter aftertaste. Very light bodied.

Pretty damn good tasty beer. Cermanic filtering, and Japanese packaging rocks!! I luv the silver can it comes in. Totally AWESOME!! Brewed starting in 1876. Beautiful bright golden color look. Nice clean crisp taste with hints of german hops. One of the best standard lager I enjoy drinking. Lot of weight lots of complexity!! Two Old Monk thumbs waaaaay up yo!!

There is NO similarity between this fluid and draft beer! It has a dark gold color, good white frothy head that slowly dissipates, a flowery (pilsen hops) nose and then the let down….. Nice grassy start then a heavy bread-like heavy taste and a sweet finish. Some sort of lingering after taste (like raisin bread) but the finish was so much unfamiliar from the draft lagers I like, I have to assume the
"draft" on the label is a marketing thing. A different kind of lager not bad but not a mellow draft lager.
