“Smooth mouth feel” indeed. Though one-dimensional, very balanced and no acidic finish.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
[Bottle at Le President in Copenhagen, Denmark]

Pours murky yellow. Head dissipates quickly. Aroma of malty rice and honey. Taste of honey rice malts and corn. Pretty weak overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

12oz bottle pours a golden color with some frothy head. Nothing good in this beer. A struggle to get it down.
