When the style is "premium beer" you know you have problems.. A: Light aroma. Lager yeastiness. A hint of lemon and malt. A: Looks... cheap? Head retention is nothing. Color is a light yellow orange. T: Tastes light. Like water. A hint of maltiness. A hint of yeastiness and lemon citrus. P: Light... like soda water. Overall not the worst macro Ive had but not the best. And its still a macro.

One of those crappy light weight macro brews that goes really well with tapanyaki fare. Served best at near freezing temp. Has a sweetened, crisp corn flavor. An exotic smash brew. Take it or leave it.

From the 650 ml. can marked HO516G-0933FL, It pour a typical looking light amber-yellow with a long lasting foamy white head. Some lacing. The aroma is mainly corn, rice, and grass but I do find a slightly intriguing melon character. Smooth. medium body. The taste has a pale malt bready and sweet note with a slightly fruity or melon-like hop finish. Better than I expected but nothing out of this world.

500ml can. Wow thats a good looking can ..feels robust and thick in my hand as I pour this Japanese piss into a German jug . Beautiful shinny silver can is hypnotic ,like a garish Japanese karaoke screen after ten of these. Nose of glue and Japanese war torture. Golden and with a limp head of white that resembles uncle Bens stodgy rice. A clean beer, nothing wrong with it ...

Clear yellow, big white lacing foam head. Quite decent barley aroma, fresh taste. Low bitterness detected, sof in aftertaste. Perfect with sushi. (Arnhem 201703)

Fles gedeeld met LiekevdV bij Victory Wok Alkmaar. Het bier ruikt naar rijst, en heeft weinig tot geen smaak. Drinkt dus snel weg.

33cl bottle. Quite typical pale lager, but personally I like the dryness of it. Basic.

@ Budapest, Ramenka. Aroma is slight malty grain. Poured light golden straw with OK head. Mild bitterness followed by a thin grainy finish. Meh.

Demens (402) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 26, 2017
0,33l bottle. Clear golden colour with slowly shrinking white head. Aroma: Hay with roasted rice. Taste: Has a quite malty moderatly sweet start but the lack of hoppy caracter a bit strange. With some time a light bitter mouthfeel comes in. Has a soft buttery texture. Light/medium body with medium carbonation. Short evading bitter finish. Better than the average pale lagers.
