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.

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.

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.

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.

Head is way too frothy. Palate is marked, but dissappears quickly. Also losses carbonation quickly. Poor flavour, like a poor mans Singha Gold.

Golden color with a good frothy head (didnt last long though) was what I poured into my glass, smelled the aroma of hops and then there wasnt much more,easy to drink but not my cup of tea er beer.

This is the first beer i've ever had out of a can in my life. nice can though. reminds me back when Volgon and i were kids we used to have a pretty big beer can collection. i have no idea what happened to it...i guess our parents threw them out. anyways...i digress. this beer had a pungent wafting aroma. i could almost smell the damaged rice/Bud-ness in this one. piss-yellow color. kinda fizzy and it just tastes yellow. is it horrible? no, not entirely. would i have it again? nope, not a chance.

Poured out an extremely light yellow with a large head. The aroma was good, but not great. Lots of carbonation, and goes down extremely smooth. This is an average beer, I don't think I'd buy it again unless I find it cheaper.

Color is a pale clear yellow with a white head of foam that faded fast, leaving some smallish bubbly lacing. Smells faintly of sweetish malt and grain of bread or cornbread with barely a hop in the back. Taste is crisp and grainy with a slight sweet cornbread taste thats smooth and easy. There's a little hop in the back, but hardly noticeable unless a big swig is taken from your glass. This is a OK drinker, nothing outstanding, a bit airy and watery, thinned out and could use some body and flavor.
