My 1st can, poured in a pilsener glass :

Clear pale straw color. Foamy head that dies fast.

Overwhelming metallic smell with citrus.

Soft unique sweet taste that I enjoy. Fresh and crisp.

A Sake kind of bitter finish. Well balanced but dry.

Overall a very accessible beer with a bad smell...is the can bottle doing this?

appearance:
gold . nice lace. very clear. decent carb. thin. slight foamy lace, no head.

smell:
peppery. grainey rice. no malt and no hops.

taste:
thin favoured, and kind of slick, not overall to bad tasting, just basic.
a slight bitterness that leaves your mouth dry and it just doesnt last very long

mouth:
just a slightly sharp. normal beer kinda basicness. nothing special.

overall:
this beer doesnt get high reviews, but when you think about it's peers,
asian beers that get exported to canada? .. like.. tiger.. and maybe a few others, the other options are not great either, I'd say sapporo is top of the range for asian beer. but maybe i have no idea. anyways. its pretty decent, i like it for eating with. goes great with guess what... asian food. haha.

Brilliant golden color with great clarity. A trace of off white covers half of the top. Aroma is rice and a somewhat skunk note that seems to dissipate somewhat gradually. The taste is white rice. The mouth is crisp and yet a bit thin.

My first rice lager and I was not a fan. Its water with a faint hint of beer. If you are a light lager person or someone trying to expand there palate then I say go for it but for those who are looking for a full body tasting beer than I would tell you to pass on this beer.

A decent beer for the style, and better than some other macro rice lagers. Nothing special, but definitely refreshing in and inoffensive to enjoy with food. My first choice at hibachi and sushi joints.
