it’s palatable! slighty sweet, slightly grassy, slightly malty. nothing to offend, but nothing to commend either

330ml. Pours very pale with carbonation aplenty, short lived white head. Slight grass aroma but other than that nothing at all. Leaves a desperate fuzzy taste behind. Bland, gassy, weak tasting - very poor.

Somewhat drinkable. Almost no aroma. Very pale. Light flavor of grass and malts.

ttoadee (1535) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2012
Pours clear gold, brief white head. Malt and slight alcohol in the nose. Sweet through the middle with a vague skunky hop finish. just not much here.

jbruner (5008) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Pours a clear golden yellow from the bottle with a quickly dissipating white head and little to no lacing. Aroma and taste of corn malts and shitty barley. Wow, go japan, shitty beer all over the world.

Clear golden with a nice white head and spots of lace. The flavor is inoffensive because there is very little activity in this brew - light malt with a bit of carbonation,....nothing else. Not recommended.

Yellow body with a small withe head. Almost no aroma at all, and tastes watery. Very below average beer.

355mL. Well I’m eating sushi and realizing I have never rated Kirin, Asahi, and Sapporo despite having all three numerous times. Sparkling clear gold with a minimal white, pillow head. Some malt liquor paper, sugar in the nose. Taste is decent: grenadine, sugar, cantaloupe. Not bad.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear light yellow with a small white one finger head. Aroma is corn, malt, and that's about it. Taste is about the same.

Pale,pale yellow color , white head. Aroma is malty, some hay and may be a bit citrus. Light sweet almost no bitterness. Light body, thin texture, soft carbonation. It can be one of my least favorite beers, I really don’t enjoy it
