Just another non-offensive Japanese Kolsh. Nothing to see here, move along.
Pale yellow pour, thin white head. Fruity aroma, slight sweet candy flavor with a light bitter finish. Nothing remarkable our unremarkable. Sevenlee (1846) - 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. 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.

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.

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. larsga (7539) - 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 (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2003
Light straw colour. Minimal head. No finish. Thin and watery with a vegetable taste quality.
