Bottle. Skunked. The bottle date only went back to October of 2009, but apparently that was enough to allow the photochemical reaction to take place turning my lovely hops into putrid smelling and tasting evil. Because the process had not fully completed, I was able to get the general idea of the beer, which unfortunately was nothing to brag about. The beer was light and crisp with minimal flavor. I did get some corn.

Solid Japanese beer! Was really surprised that it had a great aroma; imagine walking through the Sahara without shoes on extremely dehydrated and catching a whiff Of a a a. A a a a a a a a a a a a a. A a a a a a a. A a a a ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

C. Pours a clear golden color with white head. Good amount of flavor for a pale lager, but not good flavor

Bottle from supermarket. Golden color, white head. Pretty common lager, refreshing but not special

Farklı koku. Asitliği biraz var ama alkol ve buğday tadı çok az alınıyor. Baltika 7'ye benziyor.

Smover sweet typical Asian lager. Good carbonation but otherwise typical of the style.

Daboch (190) - Gdansk, POLAND - OCT 28, 2017
Typowy przedstawiciel koncernowego lagera. Ładnie się prezentuje, złoty kolor, przezroczyste, piana biała dość szybko znika. Aromat słaby słodowy, podobnie w smaku, nie czuć chmielu, brak goryczki, nijaki. Dobry do gaszenia pragnienia
