UPDATED: SEP 29, 2008 Fast head, piss-yellow, light malt, grain aroma. Malt, corn taste, like a super Miller. Dry aftertaste. Why is it that the Orient wants beer that taste like american macro-brews when america would rather have beers that taste like they came from Europe?

Sorry guys but this is my favorite "Japanese" beer. Smells like malt and grains. Pours a clear yellow color with a somewhat fluffy white head that hangs around for a good while and believe it or not, laces the glass. Tastes of grains and malts as well. Sweet with a tangy grain taste. Has some body to it, crisp carbonation and it actually has somewhat of a dry finish, much like the bottle states. I dig the dry character of this beer and its not as sweet as a Kirin or Sapporo.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent typically carbonated orange colored body and a poor lacing. The aroma was hoppy malty and grassy. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt hops and grassy. Not one that I would buy again.

(Bottle): Pours a light yellow color, small white head. Malty aroma, fresh. Clean, nutty taste. Watery. Refreshing. A little alcoholy, a little dry, but not too bad.

Not too terrible at all I thought. In fact it was fairly decent for the style. Typical light gold pour with light head and smelled of corn like malt mainly. Taste was corn like malt with some sweetness, but not too much and no real off flavors. Average body and carbonation for a pale lager. Nothing too special but works fine at a sushi bar.

Light yellow color with no head. Light malt and hop flavors with a bitter aftertaste

Pores like a typical pale lager, flavor was lite with little bitterness. It was mostly just carbonation flavor.

Definitely a step above most American macro pale lagers. Aroma of grain, cerial, honey and subtle floral hops. There is nothing really exotic or different about this pale lager when compared to others, but it is definitely more quafable than your standard bud-miller-coors, as I can actually drink this without making a face of pure disgust. The flavour is mostly corn syrupy malts, cereal and grassy hops with a faint bitterness in the finish. No shitty adjucnt taste.

jcr (2763) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - DEC 21, 2007
Light yellow body with a small white head. Lots of grainy cereal in the aroma. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and very lightly bitter. Slightly dry finish. Light to medium body and water texture. Lively carbonation. Crisp enough to make it drinkable, but overall fairly boring.

12 oz bottle poured into lager glass- poured transparent golden yellow, very thin white head. Aroma of faint grain. Hits the mouth with a thin body, nothing really distinguishable, dry finish. Disappointing.
