Similar to other beers from Asian countries. Not bad, not great.

Not too bad, by far the best Anheuser Brewery product. Looks pretty weak though, a high yellow piss color.

Quenches the thirst, nice on a summer day, but you gotta have it cold. Rather sweet aftertaste.

zborgerd (187) - Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2002
Thin, lacked oomf, tasted like a flat Budweiser. I can drink this stuff, but I dont exactly like it. Oh? Imported by AB? Now that explains the Bud taste.

Not very good. Tasted almost just like Budweiser. It was good with sushi, but I couldnt drink this alone. Color wasnt too bad for the style however. Head also lasted well.

roomtempbeer (185) - Franklin, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2003
From a can, beer pours (in Chimay glass) an applejuice (piss, read 'urine')-golden color with virgin-white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is of strong straw, grass, vegetal. Flavor is of a watered down straw, grass - not too prominent. Still a drainpour. Looks awful. Tastes awful. Just another sucky, yellow beer - and there's plenty of them. Sampled at 71 degrees Fahrenheit.

carlitos99 (184) - The Big Apple, USA - MAR 17, 2005
Of course I order this with Sushi and thats about it. The beer is malty and I would say skunky too, but for some reason it has a good alcoholic kick compared to other japanese beers.

Golden color with minimal white head. Simple aroma and flavor. Mostly malty. Pretty decent.

Sircatis (183) - FRANCE - JUN 20, 2016
Bue en canette de 50cl. Bire blonde trs limpide avec une gosse mousse blanche. Au nez elle noffre pas grand chose. Au got elle est douce et rafrachissante avec peu damertume.
