Drank a can of this one yesterday. A nice darker coloring than normal, a somewhat watery smell and taste. Some bread and grass on the taste, some Tastes a little earthy too. Not a lot going on for the aftertaste, fades quickly. It does have that pleasant dryness to the taste, and is palate cleansing, so it matches well with Japanese food especially sushi. Very drinkable though, and quite refreshing. Also, you won’t feel the alcohol so that’s either good or bad depending.

Bottle pours a golden/orange with a medium white head. Aroma of corn, malt, barley, with a hint of vomit and ash tray. Bitter hops really jump on the palate, not in a good way, opening it up for corn and cardboard malt vomit. Ugh, I’d get more satisfaction drinking a stale beer with cigs in it.

Tap, gold pour, white head, nose is lacking, taste is some hops, decent overall

BlackHaddock (4844) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2015
Canadian brewed 22oz can, consumed on 12th May 2015 in Southern California where it was bought. Disappointed to be honest, bland and uninteresting in my opinion. The clear yellow body had no head worthy of mention and although well carbonated on the palate it looked flat and sad, Slight grainy nose and taste with a mild sweetness from those grains, glad I shared the can with my Son-in-Law (who did not enjoy it either).

I got the Canadian product. It is a typical pale yellow lager with a thin white head and modest carbonation. The aroma is light and grassy. The taste is light, clean, and slightly sweet. The finish is clean and short and the overall impression is an unremarkable one, though the beer reminded me strongly of Royal Challenge.

Clear Golden pour small quickly disappearing off-white head sweet smooth and malty. sweeter smoother finish than reg. supporo regular sapporo is better drinking although this has smoother body

"an above average macro lager...but in the end still a macro lager. a little more flavorful and hoppy in the aroma than Sapparo premium, but still weakish. malt leaning aroma and thin flavor."

Can from old backlog notes. Pours a clear pale yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet grainy malts, corn, dusty, I don’t get the reserve as the regular beer is probably better.

The pour produces a tall white head over a deep golden body with excellent clarity. The head slowly fades and just keeps a small cap tight foam till the last sip. It also makes some cool lace pattern on the glass. It has a raw grain with a straw and light floral like hop bouquet. Overall it’s light, simple and very clean. The flavor profile has the same clean grain and straw/floral hop mix with a dry biscuity finish. Its light to body is refreshing and well carbonated.
