Ingredients: malt, hops, rice, corn, starch.
Big rocky white head that lasts to the bottom of the glass. Hazy yellow body. Very spicy hop aroma for a Japanese lager with plain pale malt background. Quite more aromatic than the Ichiban Shibori.
Plain pale malt body flavor with rough bitterness.
A bit of harshness on an otherwise insipid beer.

Appearance: I'm tired of trying to come up with new adjectives or similes to differentiate between these cookie-cutter Japanese lagers. It's clear and yellow and that's all you need to know.
Smell: Light herbal-lemony hops and weak, sugary, fruity malts/adjuncts. Clean and bland.
Taste: I didn't know carbonated lemon dish soap came in cans now.
Mouthfeel: Frothy and spritzy and slick and syrupy.
Drinkability: Oh, how I tire of these fizzy, yellow beers. Even so, this one is pretty well put-together and largely inoffensive. More chuggable than drinkable.

A pretty good-looking cream foam head on this beer that reminds of a boiling mud pit. The smell is worty and fairly unappetizing, although strong.
The taste has a bizarre chemical/processed/sour mineral element mixed in with an otherwise not too bad taste, positive on the hops, big on grain flavor. A big, stranglehold carbonation sensation that was pretty awesome.
They're copying off Sapporo I believe with the "classic" idea--from Sapporo's "classic" beer offering.
