Nice and Light. Would have it at any Japanese Steakhouse! I liked the bubbles always rising to the top.

Pale color, weak but pleasant aroma, fairly well balanced. Nothing that's a turn-off, but nothing special either.

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

Crisp and clean, with a thick, foamy head. Golden color. Has a corn/rice aroma to it. Not a ton of flavor, but drinkable.

I wouldn’t say that this is a good beer, but at the same time, for certain foods, this is great. For example, I would never pair an arrogant bastard with sushi. That would be terrible. This beer is light, has not much flavor, but is just about perfect when eating something as light as sushi.

Rodriguez (364) - Quito, ECUADOR - JAN 16, 2012
Vegetable flavor, no bitterness, small head, no body, kind of strange beer, just ok for a hot day.

1.8
gorkogrlo (364) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 3, 2014
Can 0.5 l. Golden color, small-medium head. In aroma boring metal, grass profile. In flavor almost the same but with some grains/malt. Just boring.

1.9
beastdog75 (364) - Brick, New Jersey, USA - AUG 27, 2003
This tasted like a macro euro-lager to me, and a very cheaply made one at that. Husky/musty/soapy aromas and flavor. Probably adjunct laden. Kind of bitter in the finish.

2.3
Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - JUN 28, 2007
Bottle. Pale golden, minimal head, typical grainy, hop aroma. Macro taste. Corn, light malt. Very mediocre, but when you’re in a Japanese restaurant and in the mood for beer, it works.
