On tap at Sushi Zushi. Pale yellow with a thin white head. Light and malty. Better than the average light beer, but not by much. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Eine 33cl Flasche als "Vorspeise" zu Shushi gegnnt. Helle klare Farbe, schwacher Schaum. Im Geschmack fllt es weder auf noch ab.

tightslice (1115) - Redwood City, California, USA - FEB 8, 2016
Bottle from Beltramos in Menlo Park, CA. Slightly herbal and honey on the nose. Maybe some honey-nut cheerios. Fairly clean, grainy with a nice touch of honey-ish malts.

tfontana (836) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle pour into shaker pint glass. Aroma is mild malt, some champagne-like yeastiness. Appearance is clear weak yellow with ephemeral ring of off-white head, no sparkle, no lacing. Taste is as aroma--mild malty sweet with some dry champagne-like yeast. Palate is light bodied with thin texture but dominant feature is over-the-top too lively carbonation. Overall, a beer to have to clear the throat with asian food (as I was doing). No other reason to have it.

bbbeer (773) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 25, 2016
Pale yellow, a little bubbly. Minimal aroma. Light body. Generic lager flavor. For a mass produced lager its kind of acceptable.

Un autre exemple dune bire "quon savait" ordinaire. Elle est blonde dore et sa mousse svanouit sans traces apparentes. Un nez de sirop et dherbes mouilles. Un got de sucre raffin o une effervescence picote le palais et un aspect minral. a se boit sans penser. (Embouteille le 26 oct 15)(1715-160116)

My favorite commercial beer in Japan. Im not a connoisseur but it was ideal for noodle based dishes.
