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

CEZ (399) - Milano, ITALY - MAY 12, 2003
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.

Standard macro yellow w/ white head. However, this is definitely a cut above the rest. I actually could taste some malt and hops. Nothing to write home about, but certainly better than Buttwiper

It comes in a large, heavy can. I have this when I go to Japanese restaurants. It has a slightly bitter taste to it.

I usually refer to this as 'japanese Budweiser' because that's what it tastes like. Only slightly better. And the cool cans don't hurt.

Standard crap beer. Fuller bodied than most American lights but nothing to brag about for sure.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 19, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured from a can yielded a small white head of fine to medium sized bubbles with little lacing. It had a transparent light yellow orange body and a typical American beer like aroma with a mild malt and a mild hoppy smell. Carbonation continuously rose from the bottom of the glass. It had a fizzy taste of hops and went down fairly smoothly, but I could feel the gas building in my stomach after only a few sips. It was very much like a typical big American brewery beer like bud or miller. Well, I guess we taught the Japs everything we know!

Bottle - I only drink this beer when having sushi. Not much aroma and really not that great of a beer, but it tastes damn good with a couple pieces of Maguro.
