For being Japanese "Lite" beer, it is quite enjoyable with the traditional "Lite" beer yellow and a long lasting head. The beer tastes much better while in Japan. The one that you find in the states is made in California.

I feel this beer is very misunderstood by europeans trying to enjoy it at 12C as you would any good western craft beer. The super dry concept can only be enjoyed when the beer is served as it is in Japan at -1C. Ideally the foam should freeze but the beer stay unfrozen. It is essentially a dry cheap lager but cheaper and dryer still. At +6 its just a more bland bud light or maybe a pabst, but at -1 the palate sensation is a truly unique experience, and a very pleasant one on a hot japanese summer day coupled with a sushi lunch.

Gangstergafje (1045) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2017
The looks of the beer are op and top pale lager. The color of the beer is a beautiful golden yellow. It is very clear. On top there is a nice layer of rough fast collapsing foam. The smell is simple, but not bad. Simple, sweet and slightly bready malts, bitter and a tiny bit fruity hops. Not bad, but not extremely special or strong. The same for the taste. Bready malts and bitter and slightly refreshing hops. Nothing more, nothing less. The palate is fine, perfectly average and just as expected. Light body, a tiny bit thin texture and rather low carbonation. The finish is short and a bit hoppy. All in all, an average beer. Not good, not bad...just drink it and order another one.

hawthorne00 (3856) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2017
Can. Pale gold, fine white head that lasts OK. Meek aroma with hay and some very vague fruit. Just so vacuous on the palate - where there should be malt there is just a little sweetness. I suppose its a bit corny but really its mostly nothing. A tiny bit of bitterness at the end.

mabuzzer (757) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - MAY 6, 2017
660ml bottle. Pale golden with an average white head. Very faint corn syrup aroma, taste is almost non existent. What is there is syrupy, slightly metallic. Easy drinking but not great

sephyrott (86) - - APR 26, 2017
0.33ml from tap in Tokyo. One of the best representations of the Japanese lagers. Clear, light,sightly strong for a lager, but well balanced in general

60minuteman (1651) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2017
On tap at Salvatore Cuomo. Cloudy yellow and heavy white head. Three finger. Pale malt, corn, wheat, yeast aroma. Bland. Dry. Boring.

hynaris (6) - nagasaki, JAPAN - APR 18, 2017 does not count
Clear light and yellow color. Not much of an aroma. Strong carbonation, light in body, light in bitterness. Good balance.

gripweed57 (2159) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2017
From old tasting notes. Clear light gold color. Big creamy white head. Faint malt nose. Light fruity malt flavor with a dry finish and aftertaste. Decent balance, though light in body.

Grumpelmies (290) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 1, 2017
Bottle. Clear pale yellow with an ordinary head. Weak aroma of grains and earthy hops. Taste is corn, rice, grains and cereals. Sweetish. Low hop presence. Strong carbonation. Offensive in its inoffensiveness. Neither super nor dry.
