Im not going to lie. I bought this beer because of the shap of the can and the fact it was from japan. Thats about all i can say. I felt like i was drinking stale bud. this is one beer that can stay over there.

Dorwart (2413) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2003
Decen head with good carbonation. Medium gold in color. Aroma is bland with some malts. Thats about it. Flavor is thin and without merit. Finish is slightly bitter and dry. Hmmmm, a Japanese beer brewed in Cananda and imported to the US. Not very optomistic.

Reid (2033) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 20, 2003
Bought in the 22 oz strange shaped silver can.."Brewed and canned by Sapporo breweries Tokyo,Japan" Pours a nice yellow, very crystal clear, small head which miraculously lingers long.Nice carbonation strings. mmm very macro aroma, load of cheap malts and other rather sickly sweet smells, not good at all. Tastes very thin and watery , this taste is very very subdued.There is a bitterness but not what I would consider a good hop bitterness, hasa slight "chemical" solvent taste yuk Very average macro feel in the mouth, this could be Budweiser..thin and over carbonated. Its drinkable, i suppose,. if you are dieing of thirst..I wasn't! I was not impressed with this beer one bit. It's overpriced but I can see this would be popular with the Bud drinking masses. I could not even finish the can , I poured a full half of this beer down the sink..forgive me Beer Gods!

Bitter, light, and thin. This beer needs some meat. It's smooth but goes nowhere with it.

kumite56 (472) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - NOV 17, 2003
Small white fully diminishing head on a pale yellow clear body. (sounds boring already). Malty and fruity aroma. Taste is slighlty sweet. Buttery and soft body. Not bad but unremarkable.

Cool looking can. Typical gold lager color. Had some taste to it, but overall a fairly light beer.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2003
I like the looks and feel of the can, but it is quite hard to pour. Straw yellow color with a fluffy off white big bubbled head. Light grainy sweet aroma, with hints of grass and herbs. Sweet sugary flavors. No real hint of barley Actually seems to lose flavor as you go. This is beyond light in flavor. I'm going to drink all 22 oz. in search of some flavors, but all I get is a tongue covering of sweetness.

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2005 Bottle: Flat, watery, stale. Not much of a beer more like flavored & colored water.
