I enjoyed this beer. It tastes good for a dry that doesn't leave you completely parched deep in your throat. Light beer drinkers may enjoy it.

I had heard better things about this brew, but I was thoroughly non-impressed with it. It came off as slightly skunky, perhaps my bottle was old/mishandled. Reminiscent of American macro-brews. I've heard reports about it being better in Japan right from the source, but I'm skeptical. I shall give this beer a few more chances...

Colour is clear yellow-gold with a boring white head. Aroma has a faint hint of malt, and is otherwise non-existant. Flavour also holds a hint of malt off the top, but quickly fades to little more than fizzy water with a crisp, flavourless finish. I suppose that there must be some hops in there somewhere, but I couldn't find 'em. It's nice to kill the heat when you accidentally put too much wasabi on your sushi, but that's about it.

Not to copy JK's comments but I definitely agree. It tastes like piss water and is a bit more expensive. Please don't ever drink this beer.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2004 tastes like bud but is more expensive

Just another big factory lager.

Slightly skunky aroma Pale Golden, ok head. Taste like cooled pasta water (a bit salt would actually improve it). thin like a wafer thin mint. Now I have an idea how beer-starved my friends visiting Nippon must have been :-)

Nate (3792) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2003
Light hoppy initial aroma but then it went away - rubbery. Light gold-yellow with white foamy head, laces. Fizzy carb and medium-heavy watery body. Hoppy, ascerbic bitterness and industrial, adjuncty flavor. Not very appealing and kind of weak.
