Cavie (3898) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - APR 14, 2011
Bottle from Gabriels. Clear straw color with a bubbly white head. Farty odor. Farty and skunky. Taste is dry, corny, cardboard. Watery finish.

troyc (2862) - Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2011
[Bottle] Pours a clear, light yellow color with a decent head. Mild aroma and taste of sweet grains, rice and corn flakes. Faint grassy notes in the finish. Disappointing body and fizzy carbonation. Not much happening here.

No aroma. Crystal clear golden, medium head, poor retention. Absolutely flavorless. seltzer water with just a tiny bit of color. Bleh.

Sampled at Toronto beer festival. I can say that this surprisingly was the first time I didnít mind a light beer (I still donít see the point though). I do not remember the smell. It tasted rather grassy and dare I say corn? Not bad.

Despite being in a brown bottle, this has a surprisingly strong skunk smell out of the bottle. It really fills the surrounding area w/ ripe, delicious skunk aroma. Itís a yellow beer w/ nearly no head. The aroma is skunk and and a sweetness that implies heavy use of adjunct grains--not that thereís anything wrong w/ that. There is also a light tartness that perks the nose in a bit of an unpleasant way. Thereís really no suprises hidden in the flavor after smelling this. Itís a rather thin beer which comes off as sweet not because of maltiness but lack of hops. Itís Somewhat flat but what carbonation there is is fine and fizzy. Really, there is just not much here to like and quite a few things to dislike. This is not Japanís finest effort.

Clear, light, not a lot of head, but highly carbonated. Malty taste, very little bitterness, no hops flavor. Unfortunately, quite bland.

Given that I do not like Sapporo I had to try this. I have to admit for colored water with some kind of crisp (very little) bite, it is not as bad as regular. But I wonít buy it again.

riversideAK (5726) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Aroma is lightly beery, but almost mute. Pours light yellow golden with of bubbles and not much head. Rice, light bread, and a touch of grass. Super light body, crisp finish, nice with sushi and for a tick.
