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

Poured into a fluted pilsner glass.

Look: The body is a semi-clear golden color with slowly riding bubbles. The head is foamy and white, and recedes to an even film with minimal webbed lacing.

Aroma: Clean and grainy, sweet rice adjuncts.

Taste: A bit metallic to start, then a body of rice adjuncts, malts, and a slightly sour finish.

Mouthfeel: Dry, clean.

Overall: A bit too metallic and sour, not as sweet as the Japanese version, this can was brewed in Canada.

I personally like this beer. It's got a good, clean taste. There's just enough flavor to make it yummy, but it's not too rich or bitter. I find it to be great as a refreshing beer, and I totally get why they drink it with Japanese food. It's not too overpowering.
