Just some light beer, to be drunken ironically

used to drink the hell out of this back in the day in college. First time I've had this in 20+ years. It's decent now, sweeter than I remember...but I'm used to porters and stouts.

From a chilled can into my Bitburger Pilsner/lager glass.
A - clear yellow with a finger of head that dissipated into a thin ring quickly.
S - freshly toasted bread, sweet grains, faint lemon and hay.
T - sweeter than I expected. Grainy taste, with a hiss of lemony and grassy hops towards the end. I quite enjoyed this one. If only they could dial down the sweetness, I might fancy drinking this one regular basis.
M - tending towards light-medium, and the active carbonation makes it smoother than the norm.
O -a decent alternative to the regular AALs at a very affordable price of $6/6pk at TJs.

From a can

A clear gold with a dense, white head that falls off to a ring slowly, this looks great! The nose is rather inoffensive. A mildly sweet, faintly hoppy, lemony character is present with some polished rice. Clean. The palate opens crisp if a bit watery, spritzy, a little lemony, a little earthy. No off-flavors. A little watery on the finish, but still quenching. Among the better pale lagers out there.Solid.

Its good. Has a sweetish smell with a slight hint of sweetness but it goes down smooth with a hint of a nice kick. Problem is I don't feel like I'm drinking a beer from Japan
