Pale yellow with aroma of light corn. Taste is of corn, with a dry astringent finish. Kind of thin and watery, but better than an American macro. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 2, 2008
Yes, this is my beer of choice with sushi. Crisp and refreshing. I don’t drink it any other time except at Japanese restaurants. carruthm (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2008
pours like you expect from a pale lager, straw-colored and with little head. No detectable aroma except for a touch of wheatiness. Taste is much like an american macro light beer, that is, what taste? phobos1031 (87) - Paradise, Nevada, USA - APR 26, 2008
22oz bottle. clear and really clean yellow color. not much odor. really watery and light. this is the brew of choice at the best sushi bar in Vegas. the chefs can pound this shit all night and still not cut their fingers off. i only drink this when they buy me one. but late night, it’s OK.

Straw gold with good, white head / Mild grain nose / Light bodied, crisp with fine carbonation, and surprisingly good dry, slightly bitter, wheat finish / Simple but clean flavors of corn and wheat / A very well made beer, for what it is. waolsen (1376) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2008
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.
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.
