500ml can - thanks Ares!
Sake hints in the utterly bland aroma. I know why - this is made from rice. Watery and fizzy like soda water. Incredibly bland, and fizzes in the mouth like a soda too. Finish is ricey and soda watery. Incredibly pale and fizzy. Papery once the fizz goes down. Not good.

Bottled (thanks bored). Goldeny pale amber colour, small head. Aroma is rice, mild malts, some slight herbs and mild rubbery notes, Flavour is maize, rice and some malts with some strange sweetness as well. Not all too bad, although quite rough.

Had in Chinatown on Chinese New Year. Well, it is an asia pale lager. It is light bodied, lightly hopped, and lightly flavored. Didn’t have a lot of weird adjunct flavor. Serving: Bottle

Bottle. Pours pale yellow with a small fizzy white head that disappears quickly with little lacing. Aroma is hay, corn syrup, cardboard, metal. Flavor is much the same, lightly sweet, light bitterness, metallic finish. Light body.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Clear pale yellow pour, small white head. Nose is a bit skunky. Thin palate. Just another bad grainy lager.

Can’t say I know where to get it, because their distributor was a sponsor of a trivia bowl I was in, put on by the Asian American Journalists Association. At least I can say a light lager does indeed go well with spicy Asian food. Pours a decent lager yellow color. An okay beer at first seems like there are malts in the front. Taste is on the sugary side, but still close to style. At least it cools me after some chili chicken and bao rolls.

Glad I didn’t both with a full bottle of this, just had a taste from a plastic cup at the grocery store. Nothing too offensive but nothing worth revisiting, either.

(330ml bottle thanks to the ever-reliable pale lager provider, Fratto) clear pale yellow with soapy white bubbles. Nose is stinky, skunky, and some toasty grain. Taste of old grain, paper, skunky, and just bad. Grainy linger.
