look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Very clear, pale gold, highly carbonated, fizzy white head.

S: not much of an aroma, a little pale malt and maybe a hint of rice.

T: Very mild, unassuming, pale malt and rice but none of the cloying corn-syrup character that American adjuncts tend to have. This is not a bold flavor but rather a subtle one. Highly refreshing though and perfect with a meal.

M: Very light and carbonated, with a super-dry finish.

O: Ok people, lets not hate on premium on principle. It can be done wrong, but it can also be done right just like everything else, and personally I think this is one of the better ones.

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.

A - Drank from the can so I don't know.

S - Lots of rice, some sour sour grain, a bit of corn.

T - Virtually the same as the nose. Lots and lots of rice, A small amount of corn, Slightly sour grain and a somewhat bitter finish.

M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O - Overall, It was virtually the same as it's American counterparts. Wasn't worth the $4 for the aluminum bomber.
