taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - OCT 19, 2010
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 won’t buy it again.

yespr (40417) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2010
12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is dry cornish. Bitter and cornish flavoured. Light grassy touch. Bitter and dry finish.

riversideAK (6140) - 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.

JPDIPSO (5597) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2009
Bubbly light golden liquid with a smallish but stable white head. Sweet, corn and grain aromas. HInts of alcohol, never good in a beer this light. Fresh cut grass, corn silage, white grapes, and floral scents as well. I would have guessed malt liquor. Light sweet malt taken back by a earthy hops bitterness. Has that under attenuated flavors found in many NA beers. Watery flavors throughout. Quite dry in the finish with a dried floral arrangement coming to mind.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - SEP 6, 2009
12oz bottle at a restaurant poured surprisingly into an appropriate lager glass. Clear yellow with white head. Aroma is all sweet. Flavor is sweet and corn.

lb4lb (2587) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 19, 2009
Pours clear gold with white head. Smell is smooth grains and lightly grassy hops. Taste is a bit odd with strange honey, cereal sweetness at first follwed by crisp bubbly water. Watery, but still a slightly unpleasant flavor for a pale lager, but drinkable. Wouldn’t recommend or get again though.

Nekronos (4101) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JUL 3, 2009
Pretty much flavorless, golden and with some bubbles. Nothing special to say about it.

EithCubes (5616) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 29, 2009
Bottle. Super clear. Taste largely the same as the flagship, sweet and malty with corn, but an added industrial feel. Medium-fullish body, medium carbonation. Boring and aftertasteless, man, I can’t imagine drinking this close to room temperature.
