I’ve always enjoyed a nice cold 22 oz can of this at japanese hibachi restaurants, pours a medium yellow with a fizzy white head, taste is pretty run of the mill, hops at the top end, malts coming through the middle, and a bitter aftertaste. not a bad beer for a mass product, but nothing to write home about dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Bottle: Slightly sweet, bland, yellow, watery pale lager, like so many before and so many more ahead. Boring BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2005
Bottle at the local sushi joint. Pleasant malty sweet aroma, minimal malt taste with even less hop influence. Yep, this is carbonated water sweetened with malt and a trace of hops. Next up.....Kirin, Geiserich (4521) - Linz, AUSTRIA - MAR 7, 2005
Golden color, light hazy, nice head. Light malty with a light sharpness and a nice bitterness. LIght astringent. Quite o.k. for an asian beer, alittle bit thin and light bodied. Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 5, 2005
Light and watery, this beer had a thin flavor and aroma of malt and rice w/ an alcohol sweetness. The beer poured a pale gold color w/ medium head and lacing. I didn’t really like it, but needed a rating.

Standard lager color, big bubbled vanishing white head. Slightly metallic, sweet aroma. Very thin palate. Slightly malty flavor with sweet notes, ending is mildly hopped, skunky taste lasts. nmoskop (79) - Arizona, USA - MAR 2, 2005
Sometimes Im not sure whether the beer was good or if I was just craving a good beer. This one I thought was a decent brew (for a pale lager). Certainly better than the big three American versions. Goes well with Asian cuisine, as you would expect, and seemingly hits the spot. I’d have it again under the right circumstances. AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Bottle. This is ticking one off of my Austin checklist, and it’s one more toward my 100 crappy Asian lager milestone! I’m trying to watch my calories right now and was wary of having a second beer tonight, but there aren’t any worries at this point as I probably won’t be finishing this! Pale-amber, virtually no head despite a rather aggressive pour. Skunk aroma, skunk lite flavor...I’m not gonna totally blast this and give it 1’s because being a crappy beer fan, I know what bad really is. Canned corn aftertaste that mercifully goes away quickly.

Can. Golden color with low carbonation under a quickly-diminishing frothly white head. Pale malt aroma with light saaz-type hops. Pale malt flavor with corn and mulddled grassy hops. Cool can. ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2005
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Malty aroma with some fruity sweetness. Flavor starts malty and somewhat sour, then becomes dry and bitter in the finish.
