Eructoblaster (3478) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2004
Nice golden and effervescent body. The head is thick but fades within 10 seconds. Fair hoppy aroma but the taste is metallic. Short bitter final. Quite disappointing. At least, the 650ml can looks cool...

Not offensive, but has no flavour besides grass and metal. Slight haze too which is weird. No good.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 20, 2004
Neat can. Pale straw color with a nice tall frothy white head. Initial skunky aroma. Kind of sweet. A bit weak on flavor.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - MAR 20, 2004
Pours a middle of the road amber color with a big , but quickly dissipating head. Aroma is sweet and organic...like fresh cut grass. Flavor is a lager through and through. Body is watery.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2004
Sweet and grassy aroma. Big white frothy head on golden blonde. Very active carbonation - lots o' little bubbles. Very dry simple flavour with a decent bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and slightly sticky which drastically lowers the score for me as I find it too sticky to be a warm weather refresher and not quite flavourful enough to be anything but. Can.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 29, 2004
Not bad looking... decent head, clear gold body. No real aroma though. Maybe the glass was inhibiting the nose. Served ice cold so hard to pick apart the flavor. But I'd hate to drink it warmer. Its taste wasn't as bad as Miller, but not good either. Was a bit watery, a little sweet. I'll have to try it with my meal next time.

DKlovesbeer (172) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - FEB 29, 2004
Has a nice golden body with a white head that quickly fades. Aroma is fresh and smooth. Flavor is mostly sweet with a tad of bitterness in the finish. This beer is the perfect compliment to a good Japanese meal.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2004
If this is their "Premium," I have *no* interest in anything else they make. Pours a clear yellow with a thin white head that doesn't last very long. Minimal lacing. It goes downhill from here. Smells like any other macro but just a touch sweeter. Taste isn't quite as bad as most US macros, but it still sucks for a lager. And it's getting worse as it warms. Mouthfeel is fuller than most macros but still not much. Drinkability only scores if my my choice is this or another macro. Save your money.

I probably should just cut and paste my response for all the japanese beers. clear light and fizzy. not much going on there are a lot better out there. but with japanese food its great.
