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...

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.

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.

Golden color, light malty aroma and taste, light body, light watery finish.

CAN basic yellow beer color with medium head thatsfades fast. little aroma kinda pissy. tast is a bit watery and a bit metalic most likelyl from the can. not a bad beer ...better than keystone I guess.

Poured a light yellow color with a large white head. Nothing too special to note other than it is standard fare at Japanese restaurants and goes well with sushi...

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 25, 2004
Decent body and slight maltiness for the style. Otherwise pretty typical. Goes down easy.

not bad, had it at pf changs with some spicy food and was pleased. went down well, tasted pretty good, and was an overall good beer. not one to strive for, but refreshing and good in the right situations. had a very large head, aroma filled with macroness(if thats a word). tastes like a nice lager.
