nazbion (302) - Rio de Janeiro, BRAZIL - APR 29, 2016
Pours clear pale yellow with frothy white head. Light hoppy aroma. Taste is regular macro lager, a bit metallic. Light body, refreshing. Ok for a pale lager.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2009 Pores like a typical pale lager, flavor was lite with little bitterness. Lite malt flavor with a nice balance of sweat to bitter. Not bad.

radioseer (299) - Virginia, USA - DEC 24, 2009
(12 ounce bottle - pint glass) Pours a clear yellow liquid with a medium to large white head. That head dissapates rather fast but leads to some decent lacing. Taste is a blend of hay malt and a less noticable herbal hop taste, it also has a bad yeast component too. It is light bodied, thin texture, and has a lively carbonation. Kind of dissapointed.

Had this on draft at a Japanese restaurant recently. Is it great beer? No. Is it even good? Not particularly. But it goes down easy with some sushi.

tedovertu (297) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Major corn/rice flavor and aroma. Medium clear yellow color with a dry finish. Better than some other pale lagers but not many. Extremely watery.

Wischylini (297) - Grimstad, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2013
Pours slightly darker than the average pale lager, with a thin, white head that quickly fades into nothing. Aromas on the nose are faint, and anonymous, as most pale lagers. Aromas on the tongue are corn, cereals, apples; herbs and grassy notes in the aftertaste. The taste itself is a bit on the sugary side, but with a pleasant bitterness in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is thin and fizzy. Generally, this is a pretty boring beer, but as far as pale lagers go, this is far from the worst.

fuzzcro (295) - Illinois, USA - MAY 27, 2016
Skunky aroma. Nearly clear pour. No highlight flavor that presents itself enough to promote and other than the skunky aroma there arent any unpleasant highlights to promote either. I was able to drink it though I wont visit it again. I ticked a 3 star rating because I did consume it.

branspra (293) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2009
Can. Pours a crystal clear amber color with absolutely no head. Aromas of sugar, hay, and floral which are all very light. Palate is very thin and crisp which I am sure is what the brewer wanted. Absolutely a clean finish, no lingering taste. Taste consists of tin, bits of sugar, and some hay. If you are going to drink Japanese beer, I would recommend Sapporo.
