bottle. golden pour. wow. I’m really suprised at a 9 percentile rating. Don’t get me wrong this isn’t a great beer but its a pretyy descent brew. I prefer Kirin usually. Still. drank with Sushi. Dry, crisp, light and goes down easy. not bitter or sour. works for me.

33.8 ounce novelty can. Not much flavor here to speak of, though a little. Better than Sapporo in my opinion, though that’s not saying much. This seems like the Coors Light of Japan to me, but in a much cooler jumbo-motherfuckin’-can, thus a novelty, if nothing else, to be walking around a party showing everyone your massive silver unit.

spikester (606) - Salem, Oregon, USA - APR 10, 2008
Pours light gold color with a small white head, no lacing.
Aroma is minimal.
Taste is super light, clean and crisp.
A good beer with a meal. Little character but a nice sightly bitter dry finish. A good beer for people who don’t like beer. Despite the light character it has a pretty good kick for such a light tasting beer. Good thirst quencher.

(cleaning out my beer bottle collection as pictured in my profile and utilizing ratebeer.com)
As I recall, this was nothing special. Japanese macrobrew with watery flavors. Refreshing for washing down wasabe, but not much else.

CAN: Sometimes a super cold beer with no flavour is refreshing. So ya, have some sushi and a super cold Japanese beer. I swear there is no smell to this beer. Watery yellow, kind of sweet taste if any taste can be found.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2013 Re-rating: not too bad and it is quite different to the other macro lagers for the rice They used for brewing. Crisp and tasty.

0.5l can. Pours a golden yellow, high carbonation, sparse head. Smell is pungent hops and yeast. Very strong, not pleasant. Palette is smooth and fizzy - carbonation is strong. Taste is watery, but it’s mostly just tasteless. It doesn’t taste bad, at least..

1.7
Strykzone (7723) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2008
Looks like a pale lager. Aroma is bit of hop and grass. Flavor is a somewhat dry with some bitterness. No much happening here.
