A beer that used to be my default when we used to frequent japanese buffet places back in Dallas. Got away from it but lately I picked up a few cans. I find it very drinkable and it tastes well above average. Today I was chosing between this and Pilsner Urquell (one of my absolute favs) and I'm not all unhappy with the choice. A nice pilsner / lager type beer that I find very appealing. A lot more taste than your American standards but nothing like the overhoppiness that ruins a lot of the crafts beers here in the US imo. A beer I could see myself drink 10+ off during an extended session.
Frankly I'm surprised that this beer is not getting more love here. I test a lot of craft beer and this is better than half the crap out there.

Pours a clear, straw color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of strong rice, sweet malt, pale malt, and a hint of hops. Fits the style of a Japanese Rice Lager. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of strong rice, hint of hop, slight sweet malt, and pale malt. Overall, weak appearance with the body and aroma dominated by a cheap adjunct character. Besides the adjunct, there is little to nothing else to this beer. A poor representation of a Japanese Rice Lager.
