Jamesthebrit (407) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 21, 2014
When the style is "premium beer" you know you have problems.. A: Light aroma. Lager yeastiness. A hint of lemon and malt. A: Looks... cheap? Head retention is nothing. Color is a light yellow orange. T: Tastes light. Like water. A hint of maltiness. A hint of yeastiness and lemon citrus. P: Light... like soda water. Overall not the worst macro I’ve had but not the best. And it’s still a macro.

Not an altogether bad companion to inexpensive sushi. It smells and tastes like cereal grains. Not too skunky and just a bit metallic.

Grumbo (977) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle from Chinatown, London. Pours golden with a frothy white head. Aroma is of malt, grass and hop. Medium sweet, minimal bitterness. Quite light body, sticky texture, average carbonation. Sticky sweet finish.

ryanhunter_4 (180) - La Crete, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 5, 2016
600 ml bottle poured at home. Pours a cloudy yellow with a good white head. Smells like grass, tastes quite sweet with a bit of grass flavor. I’ve had this a bunch of times but don’t recall it being this sweet. It’s okay but nothing special.

Had a few swigs out of the can first. Hard to drink this way, very heavy on the lips so best pour into a glass. Here you will find colour like the first stages of sugar caramalising. It has a rusty nose and rice notes, steamed not toasted. Im sure it goes great with all things Yaki, on its own it gives your head a sweet spin at 5.2 percent. Enjoy

tightslice (707) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Bottle from Safeway in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is corn, grass. Taste is sweet grass, some nuttiness. Will pair well with spicy grocery store sushi.

hman43 (803) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2015
It is light golden with some lacing and a head that goes by quickly. It has aromas of grassy hops, grainy, and hints of bread. The flavor is sweet, some bittering, grains, and grassy hops. It has a light texture, is smooth and easy drinking.

jamaty (1621) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 13, 2015
Dorada clara, limpia burbujeante, no mucha espuma. Cereal en el aroma, ligeramente especiada. En boca es bastante gaseosa, que disimula la base cereal, a la vez que el lúpulo le da un tono más seco (predominio dulce) sobre todo al final, ligeramente herbal y especiado. Del montón. Bebible.
