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.
