1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
The aroma has detectable hop and malt but still not much there. The appearance is pale gold with a small head. The flavor is sweet malt with mild bitterness. The palate is thin. There is nothing bad about this beer but it’s very blah.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a nice light golden yellow. Aromas of hops, grass, and maybe corn. Taste is crisp with a nice mellow hop flavor. Still better than Bud/Coors/Miller light products.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Grainy adjunct skunkiness (corn and rice) with timid floral hop notes and a weak-sister watered-down metallic finish ...only just saved by the fact that I had to share this 12oz’er with my brother.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
The aroma of this yellow lager (with a nice frothy head - for a while) is too faint for much of a rating, some mild floral hops with little trace of malt. Watery. The flavor is a faint bready malt with little trace of hops. The finish is fresh water all the way.

Wow, this is very nice. Surpasses any of the Light beers I’m used to. Went well with grilled chicken and sox game. Never a bad moment with good Japanese Beer. Japan has it going on with brewing very good stuff. Price here at the time is a little high, but I will buy again. Thanks!

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Actually has a hint of hops in the aroma. Body is better than most light beers. Still rather gassy though. Nearly no flavor.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a white, four finger-head that vanishes almost instantly leaving no lace. Clear, golden amber. Very light carbonation and very light bodied. Nose is faintly skunky. Starts skunky, not much taste hops and malts don’t seem to be here, watery, boring finish. There are far better lights - SA light is one. $1.19 for a 12oz bottle from Northend Superette Manchester, NH.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pour is clear yellow with a dense thin white head...smell is indeed cabbage with hints of grass and maybe mint and skunky...taste is lightly metallic with some sour malty notes with a mildly vegetable finish...

Congrats to the Japanese, with this beer they have proven that a beer can be made WORSE than any other macroswill. The aroma is VILE. It STINKS. The flavor is just as bad.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2006 Light gold with a thin head. The aroma is light and skunky cabbage with some grass. The taste is metallic cabbage. There are also flavors of flour and copper. I tried this again and liked it a little more. It had a light aroma of bell pepper and bread crust. There was a bologna taste with some green beans. The finish had a little bit of black pepper. Too much carbonation.
