Nothing intermingling about this one... In conclusion: a complete disappointment, probably better to drink some tap water with ice

An adjunct like lager but no worse than many of the same style. A nice dry finish.

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that quickly died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass. The head nearly completely faded away, leaving only a thin collar and some bits of lacing running down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of rice adjuncts are present in the nose along with notes of grassy bops and hints of grainy malts.
T: Similar to the smell, the initial taste has flavors of rice adjuncts and bits of associated sweetness, but any traces of the latter are quickly canceled out by a light to moderate amount of bitterness from the hops.
M: It feels light-bodied, clean and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. There is some dryness in the finish and the bitterness tingles your tongue a little.
O: This beer seems a little bland, but there's a surprising amount of hop bitterness that prevents the malts from becoming overly sweet.

Serving type: can

There is not much to say about this beer. It's carbonated, it looks and tastes the way the majority of people expect beer to taste. It's far from terrible, but it's just bland. Karakuchi, indeed.

A common Japanese brew that does not fair well in the States. Has a pretty good look (pale yellow) but the smell and taste are average. Not the best Japanese beer out there.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass, there was no date on the bottle that I could find.

APPEARANCE: pours a clear yellow color with less than one-finger white head that dissipated quickly until there was absolutely no head left, no lacing on the glass, medium carbonation.

SMELL: the nose is very subtle, white cracker, some grass, not much going on.

TASTE: the taste is initially sweet, then a very light hop kiss, a little watery, finishes clean.

PALATE: this beer has a light body with medium carbonation.

OVERALL: this beer is kind of bland but totally inoffensive, it went down very easy, this is a good lawnmower beer because it quenches your thirst but I would not seek it out again as there are better beers out there.
