venom666 (970) - Elche, Alicante, SPAIN - NOV 25, 2016
Pours a clear pale golden color with medium white head. Malty aroma, grainy and grassy. Taste follows the nose, bready, malty, grassy, slightly citrusy and grainy. Bitter aftertaste.

M_Sack (654) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2016
Bottle. Light straw colour. Slightly malty but minimal aroma. Malty yet dry flavours. Clean and relatively refreshing when ice cold. Better than Australian macro lagers and unsurprisingly good with Japanese food ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Luneylane (102) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - NOV 5, 2016
Not interested in clocking up ticks, promised myself Id only rate the really good ones. However, since theyre so widely available in Taipei, and since I actually worked in Japan for five years, Ill rate this one just for fun. A bottle from Wellcome supermarket. Aroma: bready. Appearance: clear amber, head has disappeared! Palate: light body, rather thin in texture, average carbonation, somewhat bitter finish. Taste: predominantly bitter with an unfortunate sour aftertaste. Better than I remember, flavour hangs around a while.

Sweet grain, golden with a good white head, light body, medium carbonation...not bad.

villevav (458) - FINLAND - OCT 30, 2016
[2016-10-22] Pale yellow in appearance, clear. Small, rapidly disappearing head. Mild aroma, which consists mostly of barley malts; perhaps rice too. The taste begins quite mild and malty, but turns slightly bitter towards the finish, leaving a lingering taste of grassy hops to the back of the tongue. Quite well balanced in terms of carbonation. Nevertheless, a typical Asian pale lager.

Can at my parents. Clear golden yellow. Not much depth of flavour. Light malts. Slight touch of hops. Dry-ish finish.

Bierdimpfe (575) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2016
Bright pale straw color with moderate activity. Foamy white 3 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with faint legs. Flavors of rice and grains, a bit corny and skunky, with faint herbal hops. Sugary with a bitter feel. Oily medium body with prickly carbonation. Light finish but feels more than 5% ABV, very dry and bold, with lingering sweet rice, grains, and faint skunky herbs. Flavorful lager, lots of character, yet not pleasant on the palate. Lacking some freshness, and thick on the tongue. Overall below average quality.
