FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2012
At first appears good with a healthy head and yellow gold body but soon the head turns to an ugly film. It smells heavily of grain and sour grits. The palate is too tacky. Remains grainy, skunky, sour, and poor throughout with green apple sulfur.

(can) clear pale yellow colour with a small, white head; clear aroma of noble hops, bit skunky, then sweetish; dry flavour; not repulsive but avoidable

Une pale lager typée, tout en fraîcheur et en fruit, idéale sur les sushis.

F: huge frothy white head not long lasting. C: clear golden. A: mostly malt. T: malty flavour, some sweetness, mild bitterness on the palate, overpriced I think 6e for 650ml can from Delhaize in Brussels, nothing special pale lager for me.

Japanese beer. Perfection in a can. It’s good and you either love it or hate it. The Japanese make great scotch and great beer, but it’s like a Buckethead playing guitar. Clean, technically perfect and insane but still lacking something. If only Frank Zappa brewed beer....

From a tap as well as bottle at various Japanese restaurants. Pours golden orange with light white head. Aroma of corn and rice with some sweetness. Mildly sweet finish with no off-putting flavors. There is nothing wrong with this beer, especially for the style. Easy drinking with some light sweetness.
