look: 2.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

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.
