From a bottle poured a golden color with a good amount of head. Nice light malty flavor with no real finish. blutt59 (6609) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 6, 2009

bottle thanks to blutt59. gold with a white head. syrup, sweet malts and not much else for the aromas. decent on teh palate with a syrupy sweet malt flavor. jgb9348 (6590) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 11, 2007
Deep copper coloured body with a dense tannish coloured head. Aroma of rice, roasted malt, nuts and some toffee and light caramalised sugars. Medium-bodied; Strong malty flavour up front with some figs and nuts following soon behind. Aftertaste shows a light sweetness, a very faint hop flavour and very little else. Overall, not a horrible beer by any means, but nothing entirely special. Better than most japanese beers, but not a bad choice at the restaurant. I sampled this 500 mL bottle purchased from Nobu (downtown) in New York, New York on 09-December-2007, for $12. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2008

Bottle courtesy of blutt59. Clear gold pour. Smell is light grainy aroma. Taste is dry and sweet that reminds me of picking rice back in old country. travita (5008) - Dallas, Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2009
Bottle thanks to blutt59. The look is clear, golden in color, with a light white head. The smell is corn, grains, sweet, and floral. The taste is malts, light roasty, grains. beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - JUN 11, 2010
better than most japanese pale lagers, a little more of a distinctive taste. had this one at the nobu in miami beach. went well with the suishi as a light colored and bodied beer. a one and done. lb4lb (2628) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2007
Pours a medium attractive gold. Small white head. Smell is pleasant sweet honey like malt. Taste is similar honey like sweetness, followed by a finish of noticeable tart hop bitterness. A bit sweet at times, but for a pale lager, this isn’t too bad. Not as good as it warms up, but if had cold this is pretty decent. jkwalking05 (4745) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Gold in color with a small white head. Aroma is of corn and grain as is the taste.
