Draught. Clear pale yellow with large creamy white head, malt aroma, slightly sweet malt taste, abrupt finish. Nice as lagers go

massingasetta (424) - München, GERMANY - JUN 7, 2015
I like International lagers as my expectation simply is limited and I know what I get. This beer is a typical example of a beer with limited herbal taste, utter drinkability and a flare of bottle beer. Not a taste wonder but does the trick.

Pale yellow color, with small white head. Aroma of grass and hops. Taste is watered. Didn’t expect much, didn’t get much.

Gary (1664) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2015
650ml can . Drank from a tulip. Holy shit , maybe the coolest shaped beer can I’ve had the pleasure to pour bus from ....lt looks like a beer can sent back from 2037 . I was 99 % certain I had rated this , I know I’ve drank it before , but alas a surprise new rate. Golden colour , with a two finger white foam head . Nose of floral hops , citrus , bready malts , cardboard , hay . this lager dranks pretty nicely , pretty soft and light , with bready sweet malts , rain water bitterness , spice , some subtle glue to remind you that Asian lagers are not the slickest . I like a good no bullshit , easy to drink non Pils lager . Good one.

Jabah (217) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2015
The typical Sapporo that you get here at a Japanese restaurant. I revisited Kirin recently and wan’t impressed at all. This is slightly better, but still a bland forgetable pale lager however you look at it. Does have some mild hops to give it a near pilsner-like feel. Make sure it’s really cold though if sampling!

tfontana (180) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Can. Aroma is bready malts without much complexity. Appearance is clear pale yellow with slight sparkle and frothy 1 finger-width head with poor retention but decent lacing. Taste is straight up the middle moderate sweet. Palate is light to medium bodied with a bit of a slick texture, minimal carbonation and pretty abrupt finish. Overall, better than macro domestics but there’s pretty much no reason to drink this other than in an Asian restaurant to pair with the Asian cuisine/experience.
