Had a couple of these at a Japanese steak house.
Poured golden with a well carbonated white head. Some sticky lace to be had.
Aroma of sweetness like corn or creamy boiled rice, pleasent not like an old macro brew.

Taste was creamy sweet corn and rice with a hop notice. As the brew settles or warms the malts come forward.

Mouth is smooth yet well cleansed. A hop dryness at the finish.

Over all not a bad brew given the proper setting. Went very well with stir fry veg and sea scallops.

Comes in a straw yellow color.

The taste is quite refreshing and works great with the umami of Japanese food. The adjunct in here isn't too strong, like some other American adjunct lagers.

There is a good maltiness and lacks hoppiness. However, the drinkability makes it a go to for me as an adjunct lager.
