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. Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - APR 15, 2008
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. BeerFanDan17 (1121) - Brunswick, Maine, USA - APR 7, 2008
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.

As I recall, this was nothing special. Japanese macrobrew with watery flavors. Refreshing for washing down wasabe, but not much else.
this beer is boring but has a clear refreshing taste.white thin head leave alot to wish for.in a pinch a ok beer to drink.

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. liinis (1791) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 30, 2008
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. gam (4103) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2008

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.. 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.
