Pours clear yellow with a fluffy white head and a cheap beer aroma. There is a faint caramel malt flavor with some hop bitterness. There’s nothing else to say about this one.

Bottle , Brewed By AB in the US . A clear light straw color pour with a thin fizzy short lasting white head , no lacing , medium carbonation . Aroma is slightly grainy ,a little corn and a hint of sweetness in the background , faint hops . Flavor is light and crisp , again a very light sweetness with some faint hop notes , nothing offensive , light body , thin watery mouthfeel typical of the style , light grainy finish , sessionable and drinkable , a good try but probably nothing I would buy again . . . meh

This was a pretty standard asian beer albeit a little heavier in the malts than others i have tasted. Color was pale gold and it didnt have much of an aroma. Pretty hard to drink.

Bottle. Pours a pale golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of cereal malt and grass. Malt and corn flavour with a light grassy hop bitterness. Quite bland and boring. Overall not that enjoyable.

blankboy (7735) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2010
Bottle [12oz] at Sushi Xtra. Pours a clear, bubbly gold with a small diminishing fizzy white head. Aroma is sweet, with rice and grain -- overly sweet and dull. Flavour is watery and sweet, grainy with rice. Light to average bodied. A whole lot of ’meh’.

Had taste from bottle at Goten in Nashville. Tried this next to a Sapporo, and Kirin didn’t compare all that kindly. Very pale light yellow. Boring nothing nose. Body of the beer was less full to me than the Sapporo. Didn’t like this beer long ago in my past, and I still don’t love it now.

Well, the color is a light clear yellow. Head doesn’t last long. Little lacing. Smell and taste is of rice and grain. Where are the hops and malts? I guess beer from across the country is way different than ours. Mouthfeel is very clean and crisp. Overall, nothing I would ever recommend or buy again. Very light beer, I’d rather spend money on an American marco. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-18-2008 05:09:39

No aroma what so ever, and a strange taste that is hard to descibe... it not horrible just not use to it.

Very light beer. Not too much taste. Fair enogh, I’d rather say. Probably good if you’re hot, sweaty and dehydrated. But, on the other hand, what doesn’t taste good in such a setting? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

650ml bottle. Clear light golden pour with average white head that sticks around a little longer than most macro swill. Smells....rancid. Almost like someone left corn sitting out and it turned and then that same someone threw a bag of white sugar on it for reasons unknown. Tastes much better than it smells...not that that’s saying a whole lot. It’s a little sweet and has that corn mash edge to it but there’s a nice crispness. Certainly a step above most lawnmower beer, but not a big one.
