Can: Poured a clear golden colored beer with a pretty decent head with standard retention. Aroma is very weak, almost watery I should say. Taste is also quite watery and boring. I guess it would go well with the kind of spicy food where you loose all your taste buds. Taste is even worse when I notice that this is brewed by Sleeman at their Guelph facility.

Here's another macro-styled light-tasting lager beer that comes closer to tasting unfermented grain water than drinking a beer.

The lack of hop is disappointing but expected. Thin bodied, highly carbonated. Yep, get out the lawn mower, work up a sweat and down this in seconds, then you might find it satisfying.

This beer reminds me of Sapporo Premium. In fact, I can't come up with any discernable differences. It is a pale straw color with a weak beige head. The nose and taste are both ricey and a bit skunky. A light boddy has more than ample carbonation and does not go down well.

Thanks to capra12 for this one. Imported (from Hong Kong) version. 4oz. can poured into a Heady Topper pint.

Extended pour yields a massive, 4 finger foamy white head that collapses quickly. Beer is a clear pale yellow. Lacing is spotty with no stick. Average for the style.

Nose is thankfully very muted. Like dirty sweetened water with some lemon juice squeezed into it. Not terrible... but very strange.

Taste like dirty water with a hop bitterness mixed in. Some sweetness comes from the rice adjuncts used. A weird lemon rind bitterness is also present. Finishes grainy and bitter with a sickening sweet aftertaste. Not good.

Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Watery and grainy in the mouth and abrasive going down. Messy finish is a terrible, lingering aftertaste. Pretty par for the style. deducted points for the aftertaste.

The best part about this beer was that it came in a 4oz can size. I wouldn't wish this one on any other BA. FOr the love of God, pass on this.

12 oz bottle in Japanese restaurant. Pours a pale straw with a quickly fading white head. Aroma is of grass, some hops and sweet malt. Flavor is light hops with some biscuit malt. Finish is not existent. Body is watery. At least it was not disgusting

No bueno.

Tastes like a macro lager, has a pale yellow appearance and a startling lack of any head, and really has almost no endearing features. A skunky smell is the only aroma.

Even with a sake shot glass dropped into it, just not a fun beer. Avoid.

This brew poured from a can yielded a small white head of fine to medium sized bubbles with little lacing. It had a transparent light yellow orange body and a typical American beer like aroma with a mild malt and a mild hoppy smell. Carbonation continuously rose from the bottom of the glass. It had a fizzy taste of hops and went down fairly smoothly, but I could feel the gas building in my stomach after only a few sips. It was very much like a typical big American brewery beer like bud or miller. Well, I guess we taught the Japs everything we know!
