Can: Golden and clear. Slightly bitter taste and sweet finish. Very smooth and not harsh at all. I would drink this with some sushi, because both are very clean tasteing. My first Japanese beer, and it wasn’t that impressive

Terminus (3683) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 2, 2005
Bottle. Light golden color and a thin white head. The aroma is sweet with a hint of skunking to it. Grain and malt taste mostly that finished suprisingly smooth and a little sweet. Nothing special, but does go well with food.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2005
Bottle, can’t remember the name of the Thai place I ate dinner at on St. Paul St., St. Catharines, ON. Dark yellow pour, small thin white head. Sweet light malt aroma. Taste is very grassy and all light grain. Watery mouthfeel. Sweet lingering aftertaste. Quaffable if ice cold and eating some fantastic Thai, but nothing more.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Poured from a cool little 135ml can. Foamy white head, pale yellow body. Light hoppy and citrusy aroma. Rancid malt and hop flavor, sharp and unbalanced and cheap made.

Oh, Japanese pale lager. Bottle poured pale yellow. Light nose, light taste, different then american swill, more like a japanese swill.

OlivierMTL (709) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2005
Couleur jaune allant vers le dorée, apparence claire et translucide semblant complètement filtrée. Faible mousse blanche rapidement diminuante ne laissant qu’un faible cerceau autour du verre. Arômes de grains et de houblon style Hallertauer, faiblement DMS style choux bouilli. Lea arômes annoncent l’arrivée d’un breuvage partiellement sucré. Faible aspect de grain en bouche, légèrement sucrée, timide houblon floral rappelant les fleurs roses des champs, d’une simplicité extrême mais sans défaut majeur. Corps d’épaisseur semi mince, étalement très court, finale sèche. Canette, LCBO, Janvier 2005.

shrubber85 (11382) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 23, 2005
Bottle. Mild sour malt aroma. Light golden yellow color with little head and no efferverscence. Slightly sweet plum and malt flavor. Light body. A pleasant beer with a meal - the plum flavor is unique but a pretty light beer.

Snoro (306) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 23, 2005
De l’eau, ça goûte rien, même un petit goût acre en la buvant. Je me doutais, à sa bouteille, qu’elle devais être fade.

pintbypint (3630) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2005
650ml silver can. Standard gold colour, held a good head. very light hop scent, slightly grassy, grain and sweet malt as well. Carbonation is restrained, better body than expected. Clean malt flavour, little bitterness. Can states "Brewed under the strict supervision of Sapporo Breweries Ltd by Sleeman Brewing & Malting", had no idea this was a contract brew.
