look: 2 | smell: 1.25 | taste: 1.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.75

Had this at a local Japanese restaurant. Poured from a can.

A- Looked and poured like it's cousin, the American Adjunct. No surprise here. Yellowy/strawish/pale in color with a decent foamy head and a bit of lacing that dried quickly.

S- Not a lot going on here. What little aroma is there smells only of rice/corn.

T- Dull corn/rice again, with a hint of that urine taste that I love to hate. Tastes pretty foul.

M- Thin, moderately carbonated. Goes down easy assuming you can stand the taste.

O- I got what I expected from this beer. I'd never had it, but I could have told you pretty much what it was gonna be like beforehand. Boring, what little taste is there is foul, etc, etc... One of the reasons people think beer is nasty. Didn't even finish the can.

2.94/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance- Poured from 355 ml bottle brewed by Coopers Brewery Australia under supervision of Sapporo. No best before date. Pours straw yellow with small quickly dissipating head. Moderate carbonation, no lacing left on the glass.

Smell- Some sweetness like honey on the nose but can't smell much else.

Taste- Sweetness up front with a little bitterness arriving quickly from the hops, dry finish.

Mouthfeel- Medium mouthfeel, not to thin.

Overall- Would be refreshing on a hot summers day or would pair well with a hot curry but an unspectacular lager.

I bought this ber as part of a make your own six pack. Total drain pour. No flavor what so ever. I've only said this about one other beer, but the only word I can use to describe it is YUCK!!! I will never make the mistake of putting this in my mouth again!
