Brent (116) - Bowling Green, Kentucky, USA - SEP 27, 2001
Tries to look like an import, but brewed in the U.S. Mild hops, good malt flavor. Solid body for a lager. OK, nothing to rush to the store for.

Piepenhenrich (1288) - Steinbach, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2017
Reasonable Lager, among the better in Japan, goes well with local food, but yet it’s a little flat in taste, like international Lagers are.

60minuteman (1765) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2017
Yellowish color. 2 bottles at Akune. The food was crazy. Ate live shrimp. It drinks smooth and a good accomplice to food where food is the focal point.

mzaar (3742) - Varberg, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2017
Flaska. Klar gulfärgad med ett vitt skum. Dofter av malt, gräs, vitt bröd och en ton av honung. Samma återkommer i smaken, där säd också hittar fram. Bättre än många andra lager.

Zilb (406) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - OCT 27, 2016
Bue en cannette au Japon. Faible mousse a faible tenue. Arome leger de malt. Lager classique

R4N5H (1373) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2016
On tap at BQ Bar, Boat Quay, Singapore on 21-Sep-2016. Clear pale colour with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet grain and malt. Light body and high carbonation. Taste of grain, rice and barley. A pretty average run of the mill lager.

TedE (1537) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 22, 2016
350 ml can into glass . Pale yellow beer with bubbly white head. Perfectly clear with the odd bubble. Aroma of rice and plastic malt. Watery bitter taste. Tinny stale finish. Average Asian lager.
