Color is a pale clear yellow with a white head of foam that faded fast, leaving some smallish bubbly lacing. Smells faintly of sweetish malt and grain of bread or cornbread with barely a hop in the back. Taste is crisp and grainy with a slight sweet cornbread taste thats smooth and easy. There's a little hop in the back, but hardly noticeable unless a big swig is taken from your glass. This is a OK drinker, nothing outstanding, a bit airy and watery, thinned out and could use some body and flavor.

Assuming this is the correct beer, since mine's in a most interesting can, I have to start off by saying the look of the beer is better than I expected, with a large white head and pale/medium golden color. Nose is fairly light and a little bitter. Not much here, though. The flavor is a little earthy and pretty watery. Again, not much to comment on...

Since taste is a subjective affair, here's my opinion. Simply the best! Beats all after a surf session, or with any kind of food (ok, Singha maybe better with Thai ordered extra hot)!

Cashazza (217) - Morganville, Maryland, USA - JUL 2, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2003 Good summer beer; yellow lager, lots of carbonation, head quickly dissipates, weak flavor -- though pleasant -- watery, faintly hoppy, and very sweet. Could definitely use some more umph.

Rather bland but drinkable Japanese brew. Aroma is lightly hoppy with a bit of hay aroma. Beer pours yellow, though not fizzy with a moderate head that is retained. Flavor is light hops and maybe just a tiny bit skunky. OK.

Nice color, but that's where it ends; the taste resembles Heineken, but it is only a faint resemblance - there's a really bad aftertaste

wasnt as bad as expected, much better really. Almost no aroma, very fizzy and dry, maybe this is something to drink with sushi? not bad stuff but not the best either

Im not a fan of this Dry style. Taste is crisp and more crisp, no hops, no nothing, just crisp. It leaves a funky little *ting* on your tounge. This is an ok lager. Nothing too offensive but something that would probably produce cotton mouth after a few. Whatever.

Can: Can sucks for pouring into glass. Got beer all over keyboard/self. Nice looking can. Golden pale color, Tiny head diminishes very quickly. Flavor is vague at best. Refreshing and light. Why bother importing this all the way from Japan?

Piss. Very sour taste. Color was OK, poured with nice head at first which evaporated quickly. Carbonation was moderate. Utter Dissapointment.
