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....

Pours pale yellow, some floral hops character to the nose, overly carbonated, has a sour flavor and bitter aftertaste. Very light bodied.

Damn, this was an aweful experience for sure, not unlike sucking on an old damp rag.

Pretty damn good tasty beer. Cermanic filtering, and Japanese packaging rocks!! I luv the silver can it comes in. Totally AWESOME!! Brewed starting in 1876. Beautiful bright golden color look. Nice clean crisp taste with hints of german hops. One of the best standard lager I enjoy drinking. Lot of weight lots of complexity!! Two Old Monk thumbs waaaaay up yo!!

There is NO similarity between this fluid and draft beer! It has a dark gold color, good white frothy head that slowly dissipates, a flowery (pilsen hops) nose and then the let down….. Nice grassy start then a heavy bread-like heavy taste and a sweet finish. Some sort of lingering after taste (like raisin bread) but the finish was so much unfamiliar from the draft lagers I like, I have to assume the "draft" on the label is a marketing thing. A different kind of lager not bad but not a mellow draft lager.

Bottle. Exactly what you would expect. Adjuncts and sweet. Was thin, but not as thin as expected. Perfectly bland.

Pale coloured. Aroma of rice and corn. Sweet flavour. Very thin and boring.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JUN 24, 2004
This is super easy to drink. Pours a grainy golden color with a huge frothy head. Flavor is light and malty and not overly watered down. This one has a very sweet mouthfeel and goes great with spicy food.

leaparsons (9949) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2004
Light gold with a large head of foam. Aromas are light malts, grain and toast. Flavours are lightly toasted malts with sweet malts and grain. Not bad - and it comes in a big work of art of a can.

Had it bottled at Kobe’s Steak House. Very sweat rice beer. I couldn’t get past how sweet this beer was. Bud light has more kick.
