1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2003 22 oz. can. Um, so this is “dry?” Really? There's a nice smell when you first flip the can tab, but it doesn't carry over into the taste. Less malt taste to come through, which makes me think of adjuncts. Sure enough, the taste is gone as soon as I swallow. I suppose it would go good with food, but so would an instant iced tea. “Draft” should imply that it’s filtered instead of pasteurized, but I get none of that here. Just barley water.

Yellow in color. Pale malts and fruity hop. Does have some bite. Mild citrus component. Pretty good actually. It can hold up to the best of lagers.

Pours clear gold. A slight bite to the first taste, then blends into caramel, rice malts and corn. Some carbonation, so it does give a fizzle. Easy enough a beer to drink, alright.

Bottle, 330 ml from Lidl, Zagreb. Pours golden with white head. Malty sweetish, light bitterness. Actually drinkable and better than expected.

Not a great wrap for rice brewed beer but seems to gell well with the Japanese food. And Julie definitely likes it!

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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
