Golden honey colored lager that typifies the Japanese style. Sure to please on a hot day, but not as polished as it could be. Slightly sour flavor, but compensated for by a strong aftertaste.

Can: Poured a clear golden colored beer with a pretty decent head with standard retention. Aroma is very weak, almost watery I should say. Taste is also quite watery and boring. I guess it would go well with the kind of spicy food where you loose all your taste buds. Taste is even worse when I notice that this is brewed by Sleeman at their Guelph facility.

hopdog (11274) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2004
Poured a light yellow color with a large white head. Nothing too special to note other than it is standard fare at Japanese restaurants and goes well with sushi...

Decent body and slight maltiness for the style. Otherwise pretty typical. Goes down easy.

not bad, had it at pf changs with some spicy food and was pleased. went down well, tasted pretty good, and was an overall good beer. not one to strive for, but refreshing and good in the right situations. had a very large head, aroma filled with macroness(if thats a word). tastes like a nice lager.

bb (8528) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 18, 2004
Bottle. Very pale straw colored beer with a big white head. Aroma is not bad - some flowery essencse with a hint of hops. Very light flavor with lot of adjuncts, but there’s malt too. A slight herbal/spice flavor, but it’s light.

CAN. Cool looking can. Pours light golden, see through with a frothy white head. looks good. Damn! Why did I have to smell it? Has aroma of rice malt and slightly skunky aroma. Flavor is bland and watery, but it does seem to have a little bitterness. Not the worst, but certainly not very good. Now then, back to that cool can....
