Bottle. Pale golden and crystal clear with minimal head. Aromas of rust and grainy malt. As it warms up, some faint pickle juice in the background. Tastes like a adjunct heavy American cheapie lager, only with more bitterness than most of those. Not that hard to drink, but certainly no reason to seek it out unless you can’t get Old Milwaukee.

I suppose I have had this beer. However, my bottle is called premium lager (or something like: サシポロビー and more to the point, expressly says 4.7 ABV.
Clear gold beer with huge, fine & dense, just yellow-tinted white head. Unpasteurised, raw milk aroma, going over in grain & chaff. Rather bitterish, hoppy, herb taste; tad metallic, pale malts, and very slight sweetness, cornlike, without the bitterness going away. Warming up, the bitterness becomes more and more metallic and less agreable. Light, not watery, certain slickness. Not my beer. But "bad" is too negative a comment.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2008 If I could give this beer a zero, I would. Remember those old bitter beer face commercials for Rheingold beer? Well...that pretty much sums this beer up, but not in good way. This is by far one of the crappiest beers I’ve ever had the misfortune of tasting. Ray1975 (251) - Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Very yellow with little fizzy carbonation. Smelled of sour malts and had little taste at all. Not happy at all.. I think I would rather drink budweiser. SSSteve (4006) - - FEB 6, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2005 This beer doesn’t have much flavor and smells faintly of apple juice. Very thin and watery. Its not worth the price.

I did not enjoy this skunk-smelling but otherwise nondescript pale lager. Did I really used to like this? Skunk, rice, and water? I can’t believe somebody traded a Maudite for this (as someone wrote below), are they insane? I would rather drink PBR. brocker (99) - Salina, Utah, USA - JAN 31, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2007 Popped the cap and got the skunk smell.
Poured the beer, and strangely the stink was gone. The old fart in the cushion effect I guess.
The beer was typical yellow. No real head but a fair amount of carbonation.
Tastes real normal. I put it in between Schlitz and Coor’s. Nothing special.
Crisp, refreshing, very drinkable. Not worth the price, though.

I get this beer whenever I’m out for sushi (it’s either this or Miller). The place I get it serves it nice and cold, and it’s a "refreshing" beer. I don’t think I’d ever buy it for drinking at home. It’s crisp with a decent flavor, and goes down easy. However, it’s really nothing too special. Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JAN 24, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2006 It has a rice back flavor, with a grand foam. It had a special flavor that I didn’t like at all, I guess my beers are the dunkel.

Not what I expected, it has a very low rice back flavor, with a srtong and durable foam. BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 17, 2005
Bottle: Poured yellow with ok white head. Bout it to it. Personally, I thought it kinda sucked. Luckily I was able to trade it for a Maudite 2 sips in. best deal ever.
