Dredd (839) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - JAN 25, 2016
Pale yellow pour, thin white head. Fruity aroma, slight sweet candy flavor with a light bitter finish. Nothing remarkable our unremarkable.

Sevenlee (1762) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAR 21, 2015
From a can listed as Shinsyu Blond Ale. Pours a clear yellow with a white head. Aroma is fruit and some hops. Taste is a little strange if underwhelming.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2014
Can at Ibis Tokyo Shinjuku. Clear yellow - white head. Fruity, light artificial fruity, pineapple, light malty, candlewax, light light bitterness. Wierd. Yo-Ho - Really ??

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 18, 2010
Can. Pours a straw gold with no head. A light malt aroma with a touch of hop fruit. Easy drinking with a light crispness and grainy flavour. Refreshing after an 8km walk.

KyotoLefty (9528) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 14, 2009
Can, (as Shinsyu Blond Ale). Quite pale golden color with a thin white head. Rather bland, lager-like aroma; slightly fruity, though, with a touch of hops. Clean, light, slightly sweet and fruity malt with just a bit of hops. Cereal grains are rather rich, even at the finish. Not enough hops at all. Really boring, though crisp and relatively unoffensive. A disappointment from them.

omhper (23899) - Tyres, SWEDEN - JAN 11, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2009 Canned (as Shinsyu Blond Ale). Clear pale golden, small head. Fruity ricey nose. Sweet and lagerlike, fruity with notes of glue. Clean, rounded mouthfeel, low bitterness. Dull.

Marc (486) - Yokosuka, JAPAN - DEC 27, 2007
Just another non-offensive Japanese Kolsh. Nothing to see here, move along.

larsga (7332) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 22, 2007
Medium white coarse head does not last. Pale yellow body. Light spicy, fruity, mealy aroma with notes of soft metal. Light, mealy taste with paper notes. Empty, watery aftertaste. Strange, why did they bother to make this crap? (0.35l can.)

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2003
Light straw colour. Minimal head. No finish. Thin and watery with a vegetable taste quality.
