Big aluminum can full of crappy beer. Sadly I was unable to finish it all. Too much of a good thing I guess. Light gold with a quickly disipating white frothy head. Traces of hops and malts. Some citrus notes. Dull finish. Poor.

Bottle. Light golden color with big head that vanished before I set the bottle down. Light malt flavor with a hint of grass, maybe some floral character from a noble hop variety--flowery presence, but subdued. slightly dry finsh.

Fizzy-u. I dunno how you guys find it "sweet," it's actually fairly dry and has a long-lasting aftertaste. Not horrific, kinda beery even. If you want a light-bodied beer to go with your udon, go ahead. Hells, it beats a lot of American macros, hands down.

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2004 Big ass can, from local bodega -just Ok it's good really cold on a hot day but is not much better than American Macros (Bud, mIller ect.)

In the bottle. This was a free beer. My other choices were bud-lite-coors at a science geek mixer. What are you going to do? I like the texture grid molded into the bottle. It was cold. It was better than drinking the free wine.

Not bad for a jap beer. i thought it was going to taste like seaweed. I probably would drink it again if one of my jap friends handed me one

Had this in a Japanese restaurant. Pale yellow color, not much aroma or flavor. Passable with seafood, but I wouldn't seek it out.

Pours light yellow and has a very hoppy skunky smell. Taste is to hoppy, plain, and has an unwelcomed aftertast. Me no likey.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2005 If it weren’t for its distinctive can and the fact that it’s pushed hard at sushi joints, no one would buy this. Thin, weak, average. Sushi is brain food however.
