Sampled in a 12 oz bottle.
Poured a clear yellow with a small, white head and no head retention.
I detected mild aromas of corn, sweet malt, and some grains.
The taste was very simple with flavors of malt and grain. There was nothing bad or good and definitely nothing surprising. Not a bad choice to have at a Japanese steak house if there are no micros available.
Serving type: bottle

Had this on tap at Gyu-Kaku in downtown Vancouver, poured into a frosted pint glass (they only had frosted glasses).
Appearance: Pale gold with a narrow, yet creamy white head. Medium carbonation.
Smell: Very mild, did not pick up much, but to be fair I was in a busy restaurant surrounded by grilling meat. We had not started grilling at our table however.
Taste: Also very mild, hints of sweetness, hints of bitterness, hints of this or that, but no central flavour jumps out, besides a slightly stronger malty taste. It does work well for what it is however, and finishes nice, dry, and crisp.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and fresh, went well with the slightly heavy food it accompanied. A bit thin.
Overall: A serviceable beer, nothing spectacular, but it's a nice simple drink that goes well with grilled meats. It's fine for what it is, but I'm not going to be craving it any time soon.

A- pale gold with creamy white that lasts and leaves lacing; visible carbonation
S- not much. Some undefined malty sweetness but not much more than that
T-similar to smell. Sweetness with maybe a bit of hops bitterness on the finish. Again, nothing definable.
M- thinner and a little fizzy.
O- a pretty boring lager. Didn't disrupt my sushi but I wanted more from it.
