it doesn’t smell particularly good, or taste particularly good when you buy it from any of the non-japanese sources. if you have a chance i recommend buying the ones that are imported from japan, instead of the more local ones. the beer lives up to its description of being crisp, fresh and clear, but one wonders if they could do better...

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2008 This is a decent, but rather basic, bland, weak lager with little taste, and I really enjoy pale lagers. It is gold with a thick white head that lasts and leaves some lacing. The aroma is actualy somewhat strong, but typical for the style with mild malt, grain. The taste is very mild grain, specifically a definite rice quality, not particularly sweet or bitter. It has a faint metallic hint and a mild rice-grain aftertaste. It starts of bland, gets a little flavour, but part way down it loses flavour completely before the mildaftertaste. It is very watery, even for the style, with a rough, unpleasant palate. As my wife said in comparing it to Schlitz, this tastes less like beer, which mostly sums it up. douglas88 (9789) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Bottle. Pours a light gold with a white frothy head. The taste is smooth and crisp; some hops and a sweet malt. The body is watery and finishes dry. Not bad. robforbes (2277) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - NOV 4, 2007
pours yellow with a small foamy white head.
smell is wet grain, silage, skunk weed, very bad aroma, yuck.
taste is dry just like the label says "super dry", but the taste is more like "super bad", grain, a weird taste that i just cant put my finger on.
the beers appearance really hides how bad this is, all i can say is that this beer really sucks. RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - OCT 29, 2007
22oz bottle. Aroma: Light grainy maltiness with slightly sweet corn. Appearance: Light golden in color and clear. White head was full and foamy with good retention. Fair lacing. Flavor: Light malt. Hops? Nope. Light bitterness. Clean finish. Palate: Light bodied and watery. Medium carbonation. Overall: This was one of those situations where someone ordered a beer for me, and thought they were getting me something ’gourmet’. Courtesy demanded that I thank them and drink it. And so I did. Inside, I died a little bit.

Pours a clear gold with a medium white head. Has a fruity apple smell. Taste is alcohol, wheat and apples. Med body. Soft carbonation. Not great.
it is what it says... super dry. very clean lager, no detectable nastiness. pale, clear, moderate carbonation. dry on the palate. very little flavor. wish there was a tad more bittering hops. polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - OCT 13, 2007
