Not bad for a pale lager, saved mostly by the hoppy finish. Pours a clear golden color with a thin white head. Aroma is predominantly malt and corn. Flavor is much the same, with the unexpectedly pleasant addition of the aforementioned bitter hop finish. Decent beer.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 21, 2004
NSLC Beer Gala. Can. Pale golden colour with a fizzy white head. Mostly corn aroma, slight toasted notes. Corn and wheat flavours, slight acidic/astringent finish. Light to medium bodied, slightly watery mouthfeel.

A decent tasting lager, not too much taste however. Okay tasting, had it in Sakura in Maryland

TBone (16232) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 12, 2004
Bottled, alc. 4.7%, label said Premium Lager, brewed in EU
Golden color, good steady white head. Sweet, a bit even an ale-like nose. Quite plain simple mouthfeel, sweetish rice flavor.

mjg74 (3040) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 9, 2004
Pours gold in color with a big foamy white head. Tastes like a decent pale lager. A little grainy, a little sour. Not too bad, but is nothing to get excited about.

mongkut4 (132) - Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Not much to say. Not much flavor. Sour, but not in a good lambic way. A Japanese macro alla Bud.

The Coors of Japan...yellow and sour...how can I make that into 75 characters....this beer sucks...

SHD (17) - Palm Harbor, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2004
Golden honey colored lager that typifies the Japanese style. Sure to please on a hot day, but not as polished as it could be. Slightly sour flavor, but compensated for by a strong aftertaste.

Boutip (6014) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2004
Can: Poured a clear golden colored beer with a pretty decent head with standard retention. Aroma is very weak, almost watery I should say. Taste is also quite watery and boring. I guess it would go well with the kind of spicy food where you loose all your taste buds. Taste is even worse when I notice that this is brewed by Sleeman at their Guelph facility.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2004
Golden color, light malty aroma and taste, light body, light watery finish.
