1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Piss. Very sour taste.
Color was OK, poured with nice head at first which evaporated quickly. Carbonation was moderate.

This has always been my favorite Japanese lager. No offensive odors or tastes. Just a good, clean flavorful lager

Plain lager appearance with a plain lager aroma, and a dry stella like flavour. Overall a plain beer.

UPDATED: APR 1, 2005 oh boy. When I think back, this beer dosent stand out much from ki-rin lager, another I used to drink with my sushi in rochester. A little bit more bite, and that tangy, old carbonated taste. Dosent leave the palette altogether horribly though. Some light, diluted hop taste present

Poured from the bottle with a nice thick head. Unfortunately my bottle was skunky and the aroma was of skunk! Fortunately, the skunk taste didn't permeate the taste too much. This beer tastes just like Miller Genuine Draft. A good summer beer, but not one I'd try again.

Overall, in the same category for excitement as Asahi Dry. An ok sushi-chaser.

I was expecting worse for my first japenese beer. But this one wasn't bad !! ... but it had nothing speacial ... so she will get an average score.
But, its highly refreshing and the can is cool!

Nothing too exciting, not very rewarding, nice nose and color. The hops were present but not overwhelming, good beer for the masses.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2003 [rerate; glass bottle] It tasted a bit richer when I had it the first time (from a can). Yellow body, slightly hoppy aroma, dry mouthfeel, refreshing, watery palate. Not too much taste, but still drinkable; went down well with my yakisoba.

Bottled. Drank plenty of these last night. I must say that I was suprised at the good amount of flavour in this beer. Good malt tast with a dry finish. Very refreshing.
