I had this on draft and it came with nice, thick lace. Clear light gold color. Aroma (hint of malt but not enough to grab you) and taste couldn't distinguish themselves; it was nondescript is what I'm saying. Nonetheless, it was light and smooth with light carbonation with a contained amount of bitterness (let me put it this way: I like bitter and it didn't pinch me much). Overall I thought it was decent enough even if did come up short on what's expected of an APL.

I got this in a bottle at a local sushi restaurant in Boise, Idaho. It had a clean, smooth body with slight notes of hay and a pretty generic lager flavor. Went great with my meal and it'd be easy to drink a couple of these with some friends at any Japanese restaurant. I'd buy this beer again. Cheers!

A: Crystal clear golden straw color, large head that dissipates quickly, spotty lacing

S: Grain, grass

T: Sweet malts, bread, slight hop bitterness, bitter aftertaste

M: Light

O: A decent lager. I enjoy a few of these every time I go to a Japanese restaurant. Nothing to write home about but I really enjoy one from time to time.

Had it with Chinese tonight. Pretty standard, but not bad for a pale lage. Had it from a bottle into a tall fluted glass. Clear yellow, decent head and some lacing. Sweet grassy smell. Taste of corn and rice, but crisp and clean.
