Luneylane (134) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - NOV 12, 2016
Not interested in clocking up ticks, promised myself Id only rate the really good ones. However, since theyre so widely available in Taipei, and since I actually worked in Japan for five years, Ill rate this one just for fun. Two cans from Wellcome supermarket poured into a pint glass for the full effect. The design on the can makes it look like soda water, a worrying sign... Aroma: smells alright, caramel? Appearance: clear amber, no head to speak of. Palate: light-bodied and thin, soft carbonation. There is something rather sour in the finish. Taste: lightly bitter, undistinguished. I dont care if its from the sub-tropical island of Okinawa or not, I doubt if I will be drinking this one again.

Bottle at a Japanese restaurant in Flushing during US Open. Grainy nondescript lager. Grassy, corny, Budweisery, kind of sweet.

Skarecrow (593) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 1, 2016
500ml can BB 12/2016 from Tokyo Liquor in Newmarket. Slight grainy aroma. Gold with good head. Mild bitterness with grainy thin finish. A touch of wet cardboard too. OK but nothing startling.

ajnepple (6147) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2016
12 oz can into a shaker pint at Sushi Den. Clear golden appearance with a fluffy white head. Aroma of grains, light hops and a hint of corn. Similar flavor, adding light to mild malt sweetness and light bitterness. A little bland and boring overall, but it is pretty crisp, light and easy to drink I suppose.

adamnowek (2391) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 28, 2016
Super bright golden colour. Corny aroma. Taste is overly sweet. This would be better on an Okinawan beach.

BVery (10122) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2016
Can from FairPrice in Singapore. This is better than some other lagers Ive had in the area, but by no means is it good. A little cleaner, maybe some sweet grains poking through, but still bland and boring.

Draft. A- Sweet grains, cereal. A- Yellow color, clear liquid, white head. T- Sweet grains, subtle straw, subtle citrus. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, refreshing finish. O- Had with some Okinawan food. Actually pretty refreshing and not skunky at all.

BlackHaddock (6978) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2016
22oz bottle shared with my wife on 26th May 2016: poured into two La Chouffe badged tulips at our daughters. Last white crowns on both glasses, the beers body a light golden affair. Mild orange and herbal notes in the nose and taste, although the aroma was very, very weak. Refreshing but a little uninteresting and a typical International Lager/Pilsner in so much as being clean, clear and clinical in looks and flavour.
