A random I scored in Winnipeg...

A - Pours a pale golden colour, thin layer of head with no retention and some spotty lacing.

S - Scent is quite mild, musty with grassy notes, sweet corn and hints of peppery spice.

T - Taste is dominated by sweet corn and bready wheat. Hints of caramel and toasted bread lingers on the palette.

M - Medium, smooth, though a tad dry for my liking.

O - This is average at best. If it weren't for the bottle I probably would never buy it. A perfect example of how marketing actually works!

maybe my favorite shushi beer. cool bottle obviously. pours hazy straw color with a one inch white head. looks like a wheat beer more than anything, and next to a tsing tao is looked positively unfiltered, but who knows. the smell is rather sweet from the malts, and a yeast that is a step up from generic provides some mild fruit tones. flavor is pretty similar to the nose, its is crisp and refreshing for sure, and stands up rather well to the hot wasabi. its a good palate cleanser between different fishes. mouthfeel is okay, bright and bubbly, but heavier than a lager should be i think. not a bad brew in the right context, btu certainly not something i would seek out outside of a sushi place.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

A: Pours a pale yellow color with a decent head that fades to bits of lacing.

S: Aroma is musty with some malt sweetness and grain.

T: Pretty bland taste with mild sweetness and coarse grain. Mild bitterness and a fairly clean finish.

Light body, almost watery. Crisp with a coarse texture. Not a lot here.

Best served cold on a hot day. Basic lager. Best thing is the bottle it comes in.

Extremely smooth and easy-drinking, no aftertaste. Tried it a few times, once it was a bit skunky, but the other times it almost had a magical lightness to it. Falls flat in the flavour department, yes, but if you're in the mood for a refreshing, bubbly, light lager then you should give this one a try.

Poured into a pint glass, this beer has a crystal clear , golden blonde body with mild carbonation and is topped off with a thin white head that quickly thins out into a layer of fizz with almost no lacing. Some malts aromas are evident along with some mild citrus fruits smells like grapefruit and lemon. It’s very light on the tongue with a light mouth feel, but its very crisp and refreshing. Its got a sweet overtone to it but not much else. It goes down really smooth, maybe too smooth- but not bad overall.
