You gotta love the silver can. This was a really impressive beer. It had a nice solid taste and went down smooth, everything you could ask from a beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Typical import lager aroma. Light gold and a head held together similar to Fosterís.
For a chintzy beer, this ainít all that bad. Why? Because although itís palate is unchallenging, itís finish is non-cloying, and very agreeable. They did a good job of advertising this as a draught-- it is definitely smooth. I would love to try this with a habanero-laced, Japanese noodle and shrimp dish.

Nifty can presentation, but fails miserably when it comes to the beer itself. Slightly better than BudMillerCoors, but not much.

not to complicated a beer, light fruity nose, light hoppy flavour, and not much on the palate. it reminde me of Asahi Super dry a hell of a lot.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer melds very well with sushi. It had adequate potency to wash the raw fish off your tongue.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Awesome can. Nothing too special here, but definitely above average. Delayed pineapple aftertaste makes this interesting (if its not supposed to have that taste, they should add it! I thought I was nuts until others with me tasted it as well).
Being that this is Japanese, I think a good analogy is the Toyota Camry--not too flashy, slightly overpriced, but wonít let you down.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not too terrible, starts out kind of rough, but it grows on you. I was more impressed by the can.
