Its funny how big brewers often make quite a deep range of pale lagers that really taste within a very narrow flavour range. This beer is a great example; I cant really pick the difference b/w this, Super Dry and Draft. Middle of the road for the style; crisp, sharp, some corn from the adjunct, but not much in the way of malt and hop character (broken record?).

This beer is clean and light. Crips with moderate carbonation. Flavors of straw and grass, goes well with the stronger flavors in Sushi and Sashimi.

500ml can. Does what it says. Drought. Ummm. Yellow, wet, fizzy. Not much else to say

PotjeBier (2931) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2017
Well, when in Okinawa...Draft in The Toquee, Zamami village. Clear golden color, with sticky white head, dense, but also with big bubbles. Some lacing. Aroma is fruity and soft sweet. Light sweet and fruity flavor. Light bodied. Hint of bitterness in the finish. As expected: Unremarkable but not unpleasant.

Just barely a step above the typical macro lager crap. Slightly sweet with presence of corn, wheat and metallic unpleasantness.

bomber @ Cork n Bottle / Crescent Springs KY --- Aroma of malt and rice. Clear medium-light amber, fluffy 1" white head, globs of lace. Taste is malt and rice, consistently sweet, adding a jolt of edgy carbonation that serves as a balance. Just another "big box" Lager, although, theres a little more flavor here.

~20oz bottle pour at a local sushi restaurant. Poured a golden yellow color, big head, quickly dissipating. Aroma was light rice, sweet grains. Flavor was similar.

Luneylane (101) - 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 (499) - 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.

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.
