Got this from the can and it poured with a massive airy head, which quickly went away. The beer is light orange with a sweet malty aroma. The beer was flat on the tongue and the flavor was equally unexciting. Just another so-so beer, I'd say.

vwsteggie (684) - Paxton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 5, 2003
Has a light amber/golden color with some carbonation and a light malt smell. Taste is lightly malted and finishes a bit light. Overall it was your standard beer, better than the macros, but nothing special.

weusebio (69) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2003
Advertising says "Best Selling Japanese Beer" but that really means nothing to me, as Budweiser could be marketed as the same overseas. It's light, crisp, and easily forgettable.

Forms a large head and has a clear tan appearence. Has a taste of a American Standard with a cleaner and fuller flavor.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2003
This one has a thin, fizzy white head that lingers a minute before dissipating, leaving a thin film of foam on the top. It has a clear, golden colored body with a faintly malty aroma that has a little bit of sweetness. It has a light body with high carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Flavor is malty and sweet up front with a clean, crisp finish that is refreshing. Not bad.

I had the bottled "Premium Beer" version. Clean taste and aroma and kind of dry on the palette. There isn't a whole world of flavor here, but it is refreshing.

I drink it with sushi just for the experience. Sake is 100 times better. Sapporo is over priced mass produced imported water with a bit of added alcohol. Not suggested.

hopscotch (10225) - 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?

jerkadilly74 (155) - mooresville, Indiana, USA - AUG 12, 2003
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.

A revolting, plastic aroma. A rather dry palate with some bitterness, and a bit sourish.
