very pale yellow coloured ale, with a light laggey hop, mellow and juicy, a good lager.

Bottle. Brewed by A-B in LA?! Brown glass, but skunky nonetheless. Lightly sweet. Clear golden body with a creamy eggshell head. Body is pure watery. Light grainy bitterness with a touch of stale malt. Soft. Sampled in a side-by-side, Id usually take this over the sharper Siwo, the extreme softness here is quite redeeming.

Aroma is slightly skunky when warm but nonexistent when cold. Quick dissipating head of one finger on golden amber body. Rich, malty flavor, few hops and a sweet finish complements any meal but is boring on its own. Nice, rich mouthfeel. So far, this is my favorite japanese beer.

Better than super dry. A bit more frothy and pale. A little bit lighter taste i guess but still pretty decent. Dunno where they got that can in the pic... special edition? looks cool though.

A staple of any sushi restaurant. Not bad, but really lacking in flavor. Pours clear with a good amount of head that goes away quickly.

bgburdman9 (861) - columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2007
Had this with my dinner at a thai restaurant. It went pretty well with the food but nothing I would drink normally. A descent pale lager with a lot of carbonation.

buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2007
Light clear golden color with pretty much no head. Just your run of the mill pale lager aroma. Light malts, wheat, barley and light citrus. After a couple of minutes the aroma vanishes. Flavor is........ There is none. It is not horrible. In a pinch I might even drink it again.

Good flavor, nice aroma, and a great big bottle. An excellent beer to order with sushi.

had it on tap at jolly gardner in putney, slightly fruity and easy to drink, not too gassy.
