DrnkMcDermott (3072) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - OCT 16, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2003 22 oz. can. Um, so this is dry? Really? There's a nice smell when you first flip the can tab, but it doesn't carry over into the taste. Less malt taste to come through, which makes me think of adjuncts. Sure enough, the taste is gone as soon as I swallow. I suppose it would go good with food, but so would an instant iced tea. Draft should imply that its filtered instead of pasteurized, but I get none of that here. Just barley water.

17Beer (311) - Connecticut, USA - APR 28, 2017
Straw, grass, malt and yeast aromas. Pours a clear bright gold with a fine white head. Lots of lacing and steady champagne bubbles. Soft carboantion. Crisp lager tastes witha little metalic finish. Nicely balanced.

Can - Very clear light yellow color. Strong smell of hay and grass. Clean on the palate with not much body. Tastes malty and a little sweet. Rather bland and boring but not my style at all.

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.
