Apparently I'm an outlier for not calling this the worst beer on the planet. Honestly, I thought it was plenty smooth, inoffensive, and went fine with my Japanese food. I'd rather have this than a large bunch of the awful "craft" out there.

Typical mass produced beer. AB-Inbev owns this now and it is brewed in USA. Light flavor, gold color, average skunklike flavor

This beer had a moderate sweet taste that disappeared quickly. There was also a low level of carbonation. If I have another I will want it really cold and only to quench a thirst. Clearly not a session beer.
