Forms a large head and has a clear tan appearence. Has a taste of a American Standard with a cleaner and fuller flavor.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2003
This one has a thin, fizzy white head that lingers a minute before dissipating, leaving a thin film of foam on the top. It has a clear, golden colored body with a faintly malty aroma that has a little bit of sweetness. It has a light body with high carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Flavor is malty and sweet up front with a clean, crisp finish that is refreshing. Not bad.

I had the bottled "Premium Beer" version. Clean taste and aroma and kind of dry on the palette. There isn't a whole world of flavor here, but it is refreshing.

FtWorthBrew (105) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2003
I drink it with sushi just for the experience. Sake is 100 times better. Sapporo is over priced mass produced imported water with a bit of added alcohol. Not suggested.

hopscotch (9953) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2003
Crystal clear, very light yellow beer. Big, fizzy, white head. The nose is subtle (too subtle), but I detect faint citrus fruit and yeast. Very lightly floral as well. Decently balanced flavor, but sweet corn bursts through for a moment. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, crisp, dry finish. Drink it with sushi or a Japanese steak. Otherwise, why bother?

jerkadilly74 (155) - mooresville, Indiana, USA - AUG 12, 2003
A decent beer experience. Tasted more like a Miller Lite than anything. Tasted dry, smooth, fairly refreshing. This would be a good brew to drink on a hot day. I had the 22 oz. can and threw back several in a hurry. The only thing I don't particularly care for is the premium price on this beer. If you want to drink light, flavorless brew, there are many American macros you can buy and get a better value.

larsniclas (5891) - Billdal, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2003
A revolting, plastic aroma. A rather dry palate with some bitterness, and a bit sourish.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2003
Fizzy with just a touch of some malts. Boring and an uneventful beer drinking experience.

rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2003
Golden. Watery plastic aroma. Artificial flavor, kind of acidic. Dry finish.

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2003
From a can, beer pours (in Chimay glass) an applejuice (piss, read 'urine')-golden color with virgin-white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is strong straw, grass, vegetal. Flavor is wood covering strong grass. Yucky yellow beer - there's plenty of them. Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.
