1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: FEB 5, 2013 Bought simply because the can was so appealing at the top of the shelf. 22 oz can of Reserve was the same price as the regular version, so I went with the Reserve. Pours a very slightly hazy orange/yellow with a large force-carbonated head that recedes to nothing and leaves almost no lacing. Aroma is essentially non-existent. Taste is not too far from a standard American lager; tastes like it’s adjunct-laden even though it’s all-malt. Decent drinking, but way overpriced for what it is. Neat can, at least. Also note that although the company is Japanese, this is brewed in and imported from Canada.

3 July 2015, can. Smiles like sweet rice lager. Thin body and mildly fizzy. A bit sweet, rice malt with a hint of bitterness. Decent n

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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).

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

"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."

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
