Bottle. Rice and grain in the aroma. Almost neutral flavor, maybe a hint of hopbitterness in the aftertaste, but don’t expect too much of it. Clean and boring.

fonefan (48555) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2007
Bottle. Clear pale golden colr with a average fizzy fair lacing mostly diminshing white head. Aroma is light malty, toasted. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a short duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft.

Reminded me alot of budweiser on draught, really nothing much to comment on. Wouldn’t buy it again.

Moz (613) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2007
Bottle. Pale yellow colour with a white head. Cauliflower aroma. Flavour of vegetables.

theisti (4105) - Kansas, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Bottle. Pour is golden with a big fluffy white head. The aroma is corn, barley and faint hops. Taste is macro lager with a decidedly rice flavor. The appearance was the highlight of this one. When at a Japanese restaurant I prefer Asahi.

epassa (105) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 7, 2007
Not so bad like the most brazilian pilsens. But it is not a great beer! Poor aroma. Palate of barley and a little bit hops. Good appearance, with a golden color and a nice white head.

I tend to drink this beer with sushi and it goes well. Not worth drinking without food, however. A step above American Pilsners.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2007
355 ml bottle. Pale golden colour with a mostly diminishing fizzy and creamy white head. Grainy, honey, and floral aroma. Toasty malt sweetness quickly gives way to a floral and perfumed bitter finish. Light bodied, prickly but refreshing. I can see this being okay with sushi, but on its own it is average at best.

JRHBrew (367) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 2, 2007
Blah. Blah blah. I can’t really comment on this. I dunno why I expected more, but I did. It wasn’t bad, but wasn’t stellar either

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2007
Watery, bow-shaped golden trumpet in ’Giraffe’ on the South Bank. But I’ve tipped plenty down my neck in The Japans. Faintly doughy maltiness, but a surprisingly robust bitterness more than capable of holding its own against a chilli and ginger mushroom stir fry.
