Can. pours yellow with a white head. Aroma of sweet malts and grain. Flavor is weak, malty, grainy, carbonated. Thin bodied, i expected worse. stison42 (318) - Blacksburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 29, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2007 Light yellow. Felt scratchy as I drank it. The little taste it had died quickly. rbc82 (7) - USA - MAY 25, 2006 does not count
It’s an import! It must be great! Seriously, not bad at all, but not special either. I found the flavor to be present at least if not special. Goes well w/ dinner. Nothing to justify the ’import’ markup though. Fightfire4beer (132) - Virginia, USA - MAY 21, 2006
bottle. big white head with a clear gold color. Grainy hop aroma. Grainy taste. Corn? Rice? Flavor so light I really can’t tell. ever so slight bitter aftertaste. nothing repulsive, nothing great. Take it or leave it. Delirium (669) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2006
Can. Yellow fizzy beer, unsurprisingly pretty similar to the other Japanese macros. A bit sweeter than Sapporo and definitely than Asahi, but an odd metallic sweetness. Nothing special.

The 12 oz bottle poured a sparkling clear dark straw colored beverage with a small fizzy white head that was mostly diminishing and left virtually no lacing on the glass. The aroma had a pleasant light malt character to it with subtle notes of citrus in the background. The body was light with a lively carbonation and a watery texture. The flavor starts off just barely on the sweet side. As the flavor matures through the medium length finish, it takes on a light, pleasant bitterness. The finish is crisp and refreshing.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2007 Wetherspooons Beer & Cider Festival May 2006 at The Falcon, High Wycombe and from the keg. Pale, slightly cloudy. Aroma is odd and vinegary, a touch of butter - possibly old. Boring keg lager, thst is softly flavouired - and that is about it’s best featured. Bad. FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2006 Sampled on draft this beer poured a pale golden color with a small white head. There is only a faint aroma with a vague macro-ish element. The flavor is dry and nutty with very little body, no hops to speak of and no aftertaste. Bland and inoffensive. beerkoz (11) - West Palm Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 8, 2006
HORRIBLE!! Either I got a bad 22oz can that was cold, then warm, then cold, then warm, or something. The only taste I got was that of ALUMINUM CAN. After three gulps, the sink got the remainder. Foxbush (2028) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2006
This is truly a bland lager with no body and nothing that defines it. This was my first Japanese beer. The 22 oz can is special with a mythical half deer , half man on the side. The head frothed over in the glass. It settled down and the color was a clear gold. I don’t eat sushi so I probably will not be drinking this lager in the future.
