Aroma and appearance are on par with macro swill. The palate is a little better than I expected, but the aftertaste was quite dry and grassy. Not preferable for me.

Draft in a Japanese restaurant in Arlington VA. Pale yellow no head. Minimal malt aroma. Sweet rice or corn mixed w malt. No hop profile at all. Bland overpriced macro suds. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can at my local Chinese restaurant. Clear piss yellow color, thin lasting white head. Aroma isn’t much, rice and weak lager yeast.

When it was cold it wasn’t offensive. Rice, shunky yeast, and weak grain. As it warmed it slowly got unpleasant. Bad yeast, strange bitterness. Thin body, high carbonation level. Drink cold (if you really feel the need).

On tap. Pours a clear yellow with no head or lacing. Smells like rust. Tastes much better than the smell with a good pale lager flavor. Ideal balance. Leaves little to no aftertaste. Great if this is what you’re in the mood for.

Niespecjalny, zwykły lager, z nieco większą goryczką. Bardziej pełne od naszych koncerniaków i nie takie słodkie

650ml can (made of metal, not aluminium so quite retro). Aroma is slight malty grain. Poured light golden straw with OK head. Mild bitterness followed by a thin grainy finish. Meh.

Thullin187 (20) - Smyrna, Tennessee, USA - AUG 6, 2016
Skunky aroma up front, Slight hazy straw color with medium carbonation Typical typical skunky pale lager taste with some adjust qualities, a fizzy on the tongue finish from the very active carbonation.... overall not a bad beer definetely much better the asahi i just recently tried, but i think i might already be burned out on trying these asian wannabe import beers.

labeerinthum (541) - Milano, ITALY - AUG 5, 2016
Lattina. Il gusto al naso finisce sull’orzo. L’intensitŕ olfattiva č normale e la persistenza olfattiva č sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma ha una discreta resistenza, con bollicine medie. La consistenza del liquido č limpida. Il perlage ha bollicine fini. La carbonazione č media e persistente. Il colore č giallo dorato carico. Il corpo č medio. L’amaro č medio. L’intensitŕ gustativa č normale e la persistenza gustativa č sufficiente. Il gusto č piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale č dissetante e semplice. Il retrogusto č di media intensitŕ. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di mollica di pane e fieno.

Szalmasárga pezsdülő kevés habbal. Száraz furmintos illat minimális komló illattal. Meglepő mert elég jó ahhoz képest amire számítottam. Édesebb, mint amire a japán söröknél gondolunk elég alkoholos ha jobban leerjed nekem bejönne... híg sokat meg lehet inni belőle. Hai!!!
