Out of a bottle at Oshima in Orange, CA (as the main man Mack's down sushi).

Beautiful label that has Raul intrigued like his prom date - but when the dress comes off, will Raul be letdown again?

Not an all out banger, but like Shakira, these hips don't lie. Just clean and a bit crisp - no adjunct skunk.

Good while macking down some cherry salmon, but not much else.

Poured from a can. White, quickly diminishing 1" head. Very clear, light amber body. Aroma includes light apple, pear, bread dough. Flavor is light and dry, faintly tart, grainy, and sweet; subtle lime-like hop bitterness and flavor. Body is light and spritzy with high carbonation.

Tastes like a solid adjunct lager, and is actually quite pleasing compared to the usual Japanese macrobrews, particularly in its lack of a skunky quality.

(0040026)

A: clear, light, apple-flesh gold... throws up a quiet, somewhat compact, cottony foam that actually takes a couple minutes to slowly recede - ends up leaving just a weak collar on the perimeter... any lace immediately dissolves back into the liquid

S: bit of a granola and dried apple aroma... not vibrantly fruity, or vibrant in the least

T: mild maltiness similar to a dry Helles (but more like an adjunct lager)... bit of a old powdery bubblegum and a hint of clove in the aftertaste... fairly clean, crisp malt flavors... hop flavor and bitterness quite minimal

M: soft, smooth, and round... rather light-bodied with a finish that just drops off quickly yet delicately... anemic carbonation - not flat, but lacking pep

O: bottle likely had 6+ months age on it, at least... still, it was pleasant and drinkable enough for what it is - great brewing and packaging practices, no doubt
