Smooth and sweet malts, then a touch of bitterness. Clean and crisp while still effervescent but flattens quickly, and there is a jarring taste of alcohol heat at the finish. Drinkable but not something I’d ask for again.

This one was a fairly basic but somewhat drinkable offering from Suntory, it's not one that I'd go as far as to recommend anyone tries but it was fairly easy to drink lager with a solid malt taste & some subtle bitterness further on. There wasn't a whole lot to it really but it's not the worst Japanese lager I've tried either.
From the bottle in Japan. Good quality (industrial) beer, refreshing, easy to drink. However, I miss out some more intense flavors that would make it stand out. adamnowek (3308) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 21, 2017
Head is soapy. Aroma is spicy and floral. Taste is soapy. Bizarre for a ’premium’ lager. jkwood04 (5463) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 21, 2017
Big can in a glass. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of pale malts, light floral hops, and light toast. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer. hynaris (8) - nagasaki, JAPAN - MAY 10, 2017 does not count
Can. Normal lager. Clear yellowish on color. Strong on carbonation. low to middle on bitterness. light to mid on body. Not much on sweetness also. Drinkable

Keg in the lounge at Haneda airport - Tokyo. Pours clear gold with a fluffy, white head. Nice, simple aroma of biscuity malts. Light sweet flavour with further biscuity character, along with soft bitter straw, pale grain. Light bodied with average carbonation. Tidy finish, more dry, pale biscuits, mellow hop presence. No issues here. sephyrott (221) - - APR 26, 2017
0.44ml from tap at Musashi-Kosugi (Tokyo). Just a lager, drinkable but it doesn’t have anything in particular 60minuteman (1765) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2017
On tap at Bistro Bingo. Clear yellow-gold pour, two finger white head. Simple corn, yeast and lemon aroma. Very smooth malt taste. Some citrus aftertaste and finishes utterly smooth. Pudelek (469) - Gùrny Slùnsk / Oberschlesien, - APR 13, 2017
Puszka 0,33 przywieziona z Japonii. Kolor ciemnozłoty, piany brak, aromat nijaki. Typo eurolager (choć spoza euro) niczym się nie wyróżniający, choć też nie jakiś tragiczny. TedE (1481) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 25, 2017
On tap at restaurant in Canberra. Slight hop nose. Amber beer with creamy white head. High carbonation. Tangy hop taste, bitter finish. Standard Asian lager. Looks good though.
