hopscotch (9956) - 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?

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 (5912) - 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.

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.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2003
UPDATED: APR 25, 2004 Probably one of the best Canadian brewed Japanese beers - that's not a big compliment, is it? Thin sweet bready malts, bubbly on the tongue and then it's gone - with a thin lingering sweetness....

Just another fizzy yellow beer. Fitting if you are out for Sushi, but nothing special otherwise.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - JUL 24, 2003
Fairly nice beer. Light golden color. Clean, smooth texture. Dry mouthfeel. The finish is quick and dry, not bitter. These types of beers can be very refreshing, this is no exception. Just don't expect alot.

Rastacouere (6154) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 22, 2003
UPDATED: APR 11, 2004 Poured in a pilsner glass from the pint can. Very carbonated londe with a foamy and fugacious white head. A malty rice smell. More rice in mouth, extremely dry feeling. Not particularly interesting, but asiatic cereals feeling and easily one of the best dry I've had, not that the competition is particularly challenging.
