Vestlake (230) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - APR 9, 2015
Poured from 500 ML can. Aroma is fairly bland, not much there. The taste is typical pale lager though I would say it’s in the upper bracket of pale lagers.

euniceradio (180) - Colton, California, USA - APR 2, 2015
Pours murky yellow. Head dissipates quickly. Aroma of malty rice and honey. Taste of honey rice malts and corn. Pretty weak overall.

Reconqvista (339) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 20, 2015
Nice yellow color with a pure white head. Light hoppy aroma with dry rice notes. Flavor is refreshing, with rice, malts and a balanced bitterness. Body is weak and carbonation average.

ordybill (665) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Poured from 500 ML bottle into a pilsner glass. Aroma- Almost non-existent. Not appealing Appearance- Looks like a traditional Japanese made AAL. OK, looking straw color Taste- The taste is better than the aroma and appearance dictates but it isn’t all that great. Not my favorite mass-produced Japanese beer. Palate- A light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Has a slight bitter finish. Overall- I rate this less than average and if you are looking for a good mass produced Japanese beer I would suggest Orion from Okinawa.

Cunningham (5667) - Halden, NORWAY - APR 4, 2015
A standard pale lager as to many others. Nothing wrong with it. Nothing to recommend either. Looks ok. Golden with a fine frothy white head. Caramel malty flavor and aroma. Decent easy drinkable lager.
[Bottle at Le President in Copenhagen, Denmark]

Dr_Fellini (830) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Can to glass. Pours a crystal clear pale golden yellow color with a white head. Aroma is lager yeast, pale malts, rice. Same in the flavor. Smooth for a lager, goes down like water, but not appetizing at all.
