1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Comes in a fantastic looking large silver can which inevitably leads to disappointment but to make matters worse it cost a fair whack as well. Has a light hop aroma that is slightly melony. Pilsener like appearance. Thin malty taste not much else to report. Skunked after taste. A beer I just knew was going to disappoint.

I'm going to apologize to all women before I say this, but when you hold the huge silver can in your hand, it feels like a Man beer. Thin white head. Apparent carbonation. Dull, sort of fishy aroma. Crisp, dry flavor. Next time I get sushi I'll give this one a try. I think it would go well with fish and rice. Also, it would do a good job of putting out the fire when I again take the dare from my friend to eat the whole ball of wasabi. I almost did it last time, but it was a little too much. Next time...

Yellow colored. Hops and grain flavors with a mild sweetness. Nothing special but not offensive. Good with wasabi sauce.

I just paid $3 for a Japanese beer disguised as a MGD. Damn, what a waste of money.

I don't know if this is a fair indication but the first and only time I tried it was in a pizza restaurant in Japan. For what ever reason it tasted like I was sucking the beer through a slice of pizza, so I wasn't game enough to try it again when Sapporo classic is a great drop in it's own right.

I was expecting something. Whatever I was expecting, this beer did not have. This beer has no carbination and finishes very dull and flat. I think the Japanese should stick to saki and sushi.

Not much here. Slightly sweet. Good to drink when flavor insn't needed. I had it witha traditional Japanese dinner and it did not detract from the great food. Of course it didn't add anything either.

I love the can this beer came in. This is a very watered down version of Bud Light. Nothing wonderful or special about it, but it's easy to drink and it tastes pretty good, it's just a little expensive for a watered down lite beer.

It went down quickly, efficiently. There was not too much flavor to it. It's a light beer even though the bottle doesn't say anything about it.
