Very light, very little aroma - clean and refreshing. Overall very unoffensive. Make sure you have a nice piece of unagi to add some flavour to your palate.

Japans equivalent to Bud. Doesn’t taste bad or good.Dry enough not to overpower drinking while eating sushi

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2012 Dry, snappy, but also too timid... Citrusy, herbal suggestions ride the crisp mouthfeel... One of the best macros out there (when in good shape)...

Best word to describe this beer is inoffensive. Typical of foreign macrobrews. Does go well with Japanese/Asian cuisine, and you gotta like the bomber bottles.

Pale golden color with no head. Not much of an aroma. Slightly sour hoppy flavor.

Pure, clear yellow color. Highly dry beer. Not as bitter as major American macro brews, but still not much flavor.

Tried the big silver can with a star while eating sushi with my dad tonight. They claim this beer is extremely dry and I have to agree. I think this beer compliments Japanese cuisine very well but I have a feeling I’ll be more partial to the Kirin Ichiban, which I’ll try next time...

Horrible brew from Japan, I guess this is their version of Bud, pissy light yellow color, very little head, smelled skunky, tasted pretty much like bubbly water, I’m glad I had the chance to buy only a single can of this crap

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 26, 2002
Clear yellow. Small frothy white head. Light carbonation. Crisp aroma, some notes of adjuncts and husky malts. Faint sulfur. Sharp, carbonated mouthfeel followed by a husky sweet aftertaste. Mineral notes. Abrasive and rough. Mildly bitter. Zero hop aroma and flavor. Hops? We don’t need no stinking hops. Quenching and refreshing, but so is H2O. Flavor fades and this becomes even more boring and uninteresting. Stripped of flavor and character. Why don’t they just sell this in brown, wide mouthed, plastic bottles and label it ’Miller Lite, Osaka Style’. The phrase on the bottle ’Cold filtered and pure filled’ should’ve been a clue. What the hell is ’pure filled’?
